HOW CLS WORKS

Close

CLS has offices throughout Colorado. Reach us by calling, walking-in during walk-in hours, or complete the online application. And/or find legal information here.

When you contact us, we’ll ask you questions to figure out whether we can help you. Questions will be about your income, assets and legal problem.

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

Some CLS offices help seniors 60 and over regardless of income, but only if their legal problem falls within CLS priorities, and if resources are available to help.

Unless given permission by you, CLS doesn’t talk about 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 report you. Click here for more information about how CLS works, including priority case types. Thank you.
