Errata to the 2012 Colorado Legal Directory
The 2012 Colorado Legal Directory was published by the Denver Bar Association in December 2011. The addendum, which will also be published in the April edition of The Docket, lists attorneys and firms whose information was published incorrectly. The updated/corrected information will appear in the 2013 Directory, which will be published this fall. If you would like to order a copy of the Directory visit coloradolegaldirectory.com.

Then you wake up the next day with an “inspiration hangover” and wonder, “What was I thinking?” Time passes and the fire in your belly dies out. What happened? You just took a facer into “the Gap”—the distance between who we are and who we want to be, what we have and what we want. Life in the Gap is a fast-paced three-hour interactive workshop lead by Kevin Rhodes. Come prepared to reflect, write, and engage with other attendees. Click here for more information.
