Colorado Judicial Department

Are you representing yourself in court? Have questions about evictions, family law, sealing a case, small claims or other legal matters? Need a little help navigating court processes without an attorney? 

With recognition that a growing number of Coloradans each year represent themselves in legal matters, the Colorado Judicial Department is providing free legal assistance in nine locations around the state throughout October. The department doesn’t want going to court without an attorney to be an intimidating or overwhelming experience, and it doesn’t have to be if you are prepared.

The Judicial Department is committed to providing self-represented litigants the information and education they need to be prepared to appear before a judge. Legal Resource Days provides that assistance. 

Volunteer lawyers and others will offer free informational and educational sessions at the following locations and times for the 6th Judicial District.

In-person sessions will be held at the La Plata County Combined Courts (1060 E. 2nd Ave., Durango, CO 81301), on Friday, Oct. 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. 

Virtual sessions will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon. 

For more information, email 6thSelfHelp@judicial.state.co.us or call (970) 385-6179. Registration is required for all sessions. 

Times and types of sessions vary by location. Spanish interpreters will be available, and all sessions are free. Registration is required for some sessions; please see each location’s Web page for instructions.

• Small claims.

• Estate planning.

• Courtroom procedures.

• Ask-an-attorney.

• Collections and garnishments.
