*** Pro Bono Spotlight
Metro Volunteer Lawyers needs a landlord/tenant attorney to help a client who has been locked out of a basement apartment she was renting. When the landlord started locking the fence gate at 10 p.m. (even if the client wasn’t home), the client told him she was looking for another place to live. The landlord then locked the client out of the apartment and will not let her retrieve her belongings. If you are interested in helping this client, contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or

*** Health and the Holidays
The bar association staff truly appreciates the thoughtful and generous gifts and goodies we receive from members and vendors during the holiday season. In the true spirit of the season, we’d like to encourage the bar association’s commitment to philanthropy by suggesting donations to a favorite charity in lieu of sending gifts to the Bar staff.

In addition, several staff members at the bar association have formed an informal “wellness committee” and will focus on promoting health and wellness to Bar staff and members. Look for healthier meal options at member meetings in 2008. Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!
