Access To Justice & Court Resource Center

Access To Justice

Welcome to the Eighth Judicial District Access To Justice Committee. Our mission is to develop, coordinate and implement programs and other tools to expand access to justice in civil matters for those who encounter barriers in accessing the local civil justice system.

Volunteer Opportunities

In conjunction with the Court Resource Center that opened last fall in the Justice Center, an Ask-A-Lawyer clinic has been established and will be staffed by local volunteer lawyers. The clinics will provide an opportunity for people, regardless of income eligibility, to consult with lawyers on a variety of topics including family law, landlord-tenant, general civil law, probate and bankruptcy/collection matters. Clinics will be held on the second Tuesday of each month from 3:00 – 5:00 P.M..  We are looking for volunteer attorneys familiar with the listed practice areas to staff the clinics. Please contact Rebekah Berry-Chaney at to volunteer.

The Access to Justice Committee is also developing a list of local attorneys willing to represent moderate income clients who are not eligible for free legal services provided by organizations such as Colorado Legal Services and the Larimer County Bar Association Pro Bono Program. The list will be distributed to prospective clients through the Court Resource Center. The objective is to improve access to justice in Larimer County by connecting moderate income clients with local attorneys willing to represent those clients on a reduced-fee basis. Please contact Rebekah Berry Chaney at to add your name to the list.

More Information

The Self-Represented Litigant Coordinator is on staff at the Court Resource Center to provide parties without attorneys free procedural information and will also assist in completing forms. The staff can answer questions about forms, the legal system, court procedure and court processes but CANNOT provide legal advice. Public access computers are available for research and completing forms. 

To schedule an appointment, email or visit the Court Resource Center during regular business hours.

How can the Court Resource Center help you?
Here are just a few ways the Court Resource Center can provide assistance to self-represented individuals:
We can…
• Locate and Access Forms
• Look Up Orders
• Check Your Case Status
• Assist you with Filling Out Forms
• Determine Which Form You May Need
• Check Forms for Completeness
• Provide General Information About Court Procedure


Court Resource Center Personnel are neutral information providers and will provide the same services and information to all parties in a case, if requested. In all cases, it is best to obtain the assistance of your own lawyer, especially if your case contains significant or complicated issues. 


Modest Means Program

The Larimer County Access to Justice Committee has compiled a Modest Means Attorney List.  The attorneys on the list are willing to take cases at reduced rates for clients who earn too much to qualify for pro bono legal services, but do not make enough money to pay customary rates.  Whether a client qualifies as “modest means” is determined by the individual attorney. Each attorney also determines the reduced rate.  Click below to access the list of modest means attorneys.
