Summit County Justice Center to host Legal Resource Day
The Summit County Justice Center will host a Legal Resource Day later this month, inviting residents into the courthouse for a day of free events meant to assist individuals representing themselves in court.
With the recognition that an increasing number of Coloradans choose to represent themselves in legal matters each year — a process that can be intimidating without the assistance of an attorney — the Colorado Judicial Department is providing free assistance in 16 locations around the state. Volunteer lawyers and other experts will be present to teach sessions and help make sure self-represented litigants have the information they need to be prepared before heading in front of a judge.
Expert sessions will include topics such as estate planning, courtroom procedures, ask-an-attorney sessions, collections and garnishments, how to seal a case, guardianship and conservatorship matters, landlord-tenant issues, mediation services and parenting classes.
Legal Resource Day in Summit County will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 25. Interested parties can also take part in a number of sessions around the state from Oct. 23 through Oct. 27.
