HOW CLS WORKS

Close

CLS has offices throughout Colorado. You can reach us by calling, walking-in during walk-in hours, or by completing the online application. You can also find legal information here.

When you contact us, we will ask you questions to help us figure out if we can help you. The questions will be about your income, assets and legal problem.

You won’t have to pay for help you get from CLS if you meet certain income limits. CLS reviews your wages and assets (including bank accounts, etc.) in order see if you qualify for help from our program. CLS also reviews the legal problem you are having, and determines whether we have available resources to help.

Some CLS offices can help seniors 60 and over regardless of income, but only if their legal problem falls within CLS priorities, and if there are office resources available to provide help at the times needed.

Unless given permission by you, CLS doesn’t talk about you or your case to anyone who doesn’t work for us. If you threaten to commit a crime, including hurting yourself or another person, we’ll have to report you. There is more information about how CLS works here, including priority case types. Thank you.
