Looking to hire a lawyer?

The Lawyer Referral & Information Service connects you to qualified lawyers to assist with your situation. LRIS attorneys charge up to $100 for a consultation and standard rates ($250-350/hour) upon retention and often require a retainer ($4,000+).

The Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel is authorized to investigate:
1. Attorneys licensed or otherwise certified to practice law in Colorado,
2. Attorneys who are not licensed in Colorado but practice in Colorado,
3. Colorado magistrates,
4. Colorado licensed attorneys serving as municipal court judges,

Note that The Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel does not handle complaints about judges, other than municipal court judges and magistrates.  Complaints about judges should be directed to the Colorado Commission on Judicial Discipline.


Fee Disputes

The EPCBA Fee Dispute Committee will arbitrate disputes between attorneys and clients involving legal fees. This is a free service, but both parties must agree to arbitrate.
To submit your case, send a packet to the Bar Association with copies of the disputed bill/invoice, along with any information that you think help proves why your bill is wrong. Include a letter stating which fees you are disputing and why you are disputing the fees. Your packet will be forwarded to the Committee Chair who will contact you about your dispute.
Mail your information to:
El Paso County Bar Association
Attn: Fee Dispute Committee
P.O. Box 429
Colorado Springs, CO 80901-0429
