THE COLORADO COLLATERAL RELIEF PROJECT — 2016/2017
Starting October 1, 2016, the Colorado Criminal Defense Institute, in partnership with the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender, will continue to offer free Collateral Relief Legal Clinics, funded by the Colorado Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program and the Denver Foundation. The clinics will provide legal assistance to former offenders who need relief from the negative impacts of a criminal arrest or conviction.
Eligible cases include: sealing of Colorado arrest or conviction records, requests for Colorado juvenile expungement, petitions for removal from the Colorado sex offender registry (both juveniles and adults), and securing of judicial orders of collateral relief.
The clinics will be offered around Colorado starting in October, 2016 at various locations, mostly at local State Public Defender’s Offices.
No appointments are necessary. All clinics will be walk-in, staffed by legal assistants and others who will conduct the initial screening with follow up assignment to a pro bono attorney. Any person can attend any clinic. Spanish speaking staff will be available.
