If you are interested in helping this client, contact Patricia Trujillo at (303) 866-9307 or

*** We Love Our Law Suit Donors!
Congrats to the DBA YLD for its very successful Law Suit Days! More than 10 volunteers from the DBA YLD collected hundreds of suits from many very generous donors on Oct. 16-17. Many donors went to the effort to dry clean clothes and shine shoes – thanks! If you still have clothes that you wish to donate, contact these organizations directly: Dress for Success for women’s suits, and the men’s suits were donated to Goodwill. The DBA YLD would especially like to thank Marcy McDermott of Aronowitz & Ford for all of her hard work in organizing the drive!
