*** Pro Bono Attorney Needed
Metro Volunteer Lawyers needs an attorney to help a client in Jefferson County with a roofing problem. The client had her roof replaced Dec. 22, 2006. In July 2007, she noticed it was leaking and causing cracks in the ceiling. She received a letter from the permit coordinator with the City of Arvada on Nov. 14, 2007 that there were some installation problems and that he was meeting with the contractor to resolve the problems. The problem hasn't been resolved. If you are interested in helping this client, contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or
