Colorado Residential Eviction Defense: Basics for Volunteer Attorneys
Time & Location
About the Event
Please join us for a one hour continuing learning education (CLE) seminar in which we will provide the basics of a residential eviction process in Colorado to new and existing volunteers. We will take our volunteers through the circumstances under which an eviction may be filed; the process and timing for notice; the complaint procedure and return date; the answer and defenses; and techniques for trial. Most importantly, we will provide tips and best practices for working with landlord attorneys through this process to secure protections for tenants and best avoid the catastrophe of eviction. We also will discuss how all these processes have been impacted by COVID-19, and additional resources that are available as a result.
Our speakers are Tom Snyder, a litigation partner at Kutak Rock LLP and co-founder and President of the Colorado Poverty Law Project, and Shannon MacKenzie, the Deputy Executive Director of the Colorado Poverty Law Project and lifelong advocate for the disadvantaged.
