*** Pro Bono Spotlight
Metro Volunteer Lawyers needs an attorney to assist a disabled client with a roofing problem. The client received a grant in 2008 from Adams County to have the roof on his mobile home repaired; it started leaking a month after it was fixed. The contractor has come to repair the problem several times, but it continues to leak. The contractor has been fired and the roof still hasn't been fixed. If you are able to assist this client, contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or patt@denbar.org.
