Pro Bono Clinic/Pro Se Clinic- “The Clinic”
The Clinic has been in operation since 1998 as a volunteer clinic in the Douglas County Courthouse to serve the Pro Se community and to assist the over-burdened Court in Douglas County. Recognizing that a significant portion of our community simply did not have access to resources and information and could benefit from information about the legal process the Clinic was started in 1998 to assist Pro Se parties on a Pro Bono basis.
The Clinic is located in the Douglas County Court House in the Pro Se Resource Center on the 1st Floor, across the hall from Division D. Its hours of operation are 8:30 am to noon every Friday. For more information, please contact, David S. Rolfe, at 303 841-1181. For information on the Pro Se Center in Elbert County, please contact, Ric Morgan.
Since starting the Douglas County Clinic, it has been joined by four (4) regular volunteers, Kathleen Teltsch, Ric Morgan, Christopher Meyer and Megan Combs who divide up the entire year on a weekly basis each Friday morning from 8:30am to noon to give tirelessly of their time and expertise to assist the public.
- The Clinic has operated independently and alongside of the Pro Se Resource Center which is staffed by Selena Cassiday every day of the week.
- The Clinic does not provide legal advice to the public but does provide resources and information and is an invaluable resource to the participants.
- The vast majority of clients are those seeking information on domestic relations matters.
Any Attorneys who wish to volunteer their time and commitment would be welcomed. Please contact the coordinator, David S. Rolfe, at (303) 841-1181 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information to volunteer. You do not need to volunteer all the time to make a difference. Volunteering for even one of the clinics is deeply appreciated by the public and by the regular volunteers. We do have separate days assigned for participants with civil case questions.
