ATTORNEYS NEEDED FOR REFERRALS


Do you have any new attorneys in your office?  Please have him/ her sign up to receive referrals to assist our modest means residents with legal needs.  I have callers who need assistance with evictions, wills, powers of attorney, guardianships, conservatorships, grandparent visitation and custody, allocation of parental rights and responsibilities, dissolution of marriage, and lots of emergency custody issues.

If you can offer any names in your firm for referrals, please let me know.  Our call load has increased substantially, and I am bombarding the 27 or so attorneys who have graciously offered to be on my referral list.  Please, please send me any new attorneys names and emails so I can add them to the Weld County Legal Services list. This is not a published list. It is a private list that I use to rotate referrals.

Volunteering is a great way to build confidence, gain experience, and provide a much-needed community service.Please send contact information to vtaylor.wcls@gmail.com.
