*** Pro Bono Spotlight
Metro Volunteer Lawyers currently has more than 30 family law clients who need attorneys. The types of cases vary. For example, one client needs an attorney to assist in securing conservatorship of her elderly mother. Her mother is giving her money away instead of paying her bills and seems unaware of what she is doing with it. Contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or if interested in helping this client or any other. 

*** And the Roastee is…
Join us for the annual tradition of “roasting” — and toasting — one of Colorado’s finest. Judge Robert Fullerton will be the man of the evening at the 2008 Seniors Committee Roast dinner at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at The Oxford Hotel. Come celebrate Fullerton’s successful career and life. The slate of roasters is to be determined. Cost is $50 per person. RSVP by Wednesday, Oct. 8, to Tara Miller, or (303) 824-5312.
