*** Teach a Small Claims or Collections Clinic
The DBA is seeking volunteers to teach lunch-time Small Claims and/or Collections Pro Se Clinics for the public at Denver County Court. These clinics are designed to help people file small claims and collection actions in court. The clinics cover alternatives to filing, the process of filing a small claim, and how to prepare and present a case to the judge. These clinics offer legal information, not legal advice. Outline and training provided. Contact Carolyn at or call (303) 824-5323.

*** Ride for Justice

Last year, the team raised more than $130,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Lend your support by riding or sponsoring a rider or team.
