The Justice Center
The Justice Center was started in 2004 as a collaborative project of Colorado Legal Services and the El Paso County Bar Association. Today, The Justice Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to serve the residents of El Paso and Teller counties. The mission of The Justice Center is to: (1) Provide legal assistance to those meeting federal poverty guidelines up to 200% of the guidelines; (2) Provide legal education for those who must proceed on a pro se basis; and (3) Collaborate with other local organizations to provide resources and referrals to community members.
To accomplish our mission we provide a variety of legal services: pro bono counsel, legal clinics, Call-A-Lawyer, Ask-A-Lawyer, a Modest Means Program, online informational services, and educational materials. Our programs are enhanced by collaborative efforts with other area non-profit agencies and community volunteers. During the course of the last year, over 2,000 individuals received pro bono legal assistance through our various programs.
