Highlights and information since our 2015 Collateral Relief CLE
The Collateral Relief Project is a very successful volunteer project that helps individuals by:
- sealing Colorado arrest or conviction records
- requesting Colorado juvenile expungements
- petitioning for removal from the Colorado sex offender registry
- securing judicial orders of collateral relief
Last year the project attracted 1400 individuals to the clinics which resulted in over 400 client cases.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Attorneys are needed in two phases of the project: First at the clinics and then second to handle the pro bono cases.
Clinics: there are 14 Saturday clinics between October and June. At the clinics potential clients have their applications reviewed by law student volunteers and attorneys help determine if cases qualify. Pro Bono Cases: If a client’s case qualifies then CCDI assigns the case to a volunteer attorney. CCDI assists the attorney by providing a package of forms and directions on how to handle the case. In many cases we draft the pleadings for you. We also have an attorney listserv so you can access assistance when you need it.
To volunteer take the following steps:
- Log onto the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar Event calendar at: https://ccdb.org/index.cfm?pg=Events&evAction=showDetail&eid=38730 and register for as many clinic dates as you are available for between October 1, 2016 and June 3, 2017. All clinics are Saturday 10 am – 2 pm except for one in December and one in June when we have a morning and afternoon clinic. See complete list of dates and locations below.
- If you would like to take one or more pro bono cases please register at: https://ccdb.org/index.cfm?pg=Events&evAction=showDetail&eid=38730 We will then contact you directly with further details concerning cases. We will try and match cases by geographical location and case type depending on your responses. We will also enter you into the CRP listserv so you can access assistance when you need it.
- If you are a new attorney volunteer watch the CRP instructional video at: https://ccdb.org/index.cfm?pg=OnDemand
