Policy on Legal Advice

The goal of our office to provide as much public information to citizens as possible, including procedural aspects of our office. However:
  • Staff members cannot give legal advice. This includes assisting or advising what documents to record, completing the documents, or assessing the legality or correctness of a document
  • Only persons licensed to practice law can give legal advice. If legal assistance is required, contact an attorney, legal adviser or review the Colorado Revised Statutes available at the library or at Colorado's official state web portal
  • Low cost legal advice is also offered through the Colorado Bar Association (Legal Aid) at the Pitkin County Courthouse, on the 2nd Thursday of each month for a $5 fee
  • The Clerk's Office does not provide forms. They may be obtained from an office supply store
  • Local Attorneys
