The Pikes Peak Pro Bono Project strives to provide access to justice for citizens of limited means and would like to thank the the following organizations for their generous support: The El Paso County Bar Association, the El Paso County Bar Foundation of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, the Colorado Lawyer Trust Account Foundation, the Joseph Henry Edmondson Foundation, Pikes Peak United Way, Colorado Springs Legal Copy and LexisNexis Cares.
To achieve this mission, we provide a combination of legal services: pro bono counsel, clinics, educational seminars, online information and educational materials. These programs are enhanced by collaboration with other area non-profit agencies and community volunteers. The Pikes Peak Pro Bono Project recruits and coordinates volunteer lawyers to perform free legal services for people with no or very low income who have cases with jurisdiction in El Paso and Teller Counties.For free legal advice please see information about our clinics and events under the Legal Resources section. Also, you may want to consider the Modest Means Program since it has a high placement rate for applicants.
Note that we do not accept applications for criminal and traffic cases. If your issue is related to a misdemeanor or felony citation, or if you have a public defender, we cannot assist with your case. Please consider the Modest Means Program for those issues.

Disclaimer: The Lawyer Referral Service connects potential clients to qualified attorneys, but does not itself provide legal advice or services. Only the attorneys themselves can do that. Further, there is no guarantee that any attorney will take any particular case. Attorneys will decide for themselves whether to take a case and thereby enter into an attorney-client relationship. Do not disclose any confidential or sensitive information in this form. Rather, please provide general information about what happened so that LRS can identify attorneys who may be able to assist you. Until an attorney has actually taken your case, you are expected to meet all deadlines, attend all proceedings, and do anything else necessary under the applicable rules.
Please note that your information will remain completely confidential and is used solely to determine your eligibility for free legal services. By providing the Pikes Peak Pro Bono Project with this information, you agree to allow the PPPBP to search for an attorney to represent you in your legal matter, and provide that attorney with information about your financial situation.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to assist everyone who requests help. Therefore, we suggest you continue to explore other options. Also, if your situation requires immediate attention, do not rely on the PPPBP, Inc. to respond or provide assistance within the time frame you must respond to a court request. We will not be responsible for missed deadlines.
