A Message from CLS
CLS celebrates Indigenous Peoples Day and calls for the discontinuation of Columbus Day as a federal holiday. CLS also acknowledges tribes that were the original inhabitants of the land on which CLS’ thirteen offices are located, including the Apache, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Comanche, Kiowa, Navajo, Shoshone, and Ute (now Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute).
Colorado Legal Services (CLS) remains committed to assisting applicants and clients during COVID19. Please apply by phone (click here for offices/phone #s) or online (click here). CLS offices are not currently open for walk-in applicants or clients.
Go to our webpage (click here) for information and resources available during this time.
Thank you, wear a mask (for you, for me), continue to social distance, and stay safe.

How does CLS work?
Colorado Legal Services is a non-profit agency that provides free legal advice, clinics and representation to eligible low-income Coloradans and seniors. Please note: we have an intake process that all applicants must complete (we are not a hotline that people can call for quick guidance without a screening). Also, please understand that, unlike criminal cases, there is no right to an attorney in civil cases for low-income Coloradans. With the resources we have, we do our best every day to provide legal assistance to as many eligible applicants as we can.
