The Colorado Bar Association, of which I am a proud member, and Continuing Legal Education in Colorado, Inc. and the Denver Bar Association will be hosting the 15th Annual Senior Law Day in Denver on July 27 at the Denver Mart (formerly Denver Merchandise Mart). Senior Law Day is a huge draw for the public, with lots of informative presentations and booths and plenty of coffee for early risers. For this year’s event, there are more than thirty informational workshops offered for the public and each person attending will take home a 2013 Senior Law Handbook. You can register for this event here.
If you can’t make it to the event, you will be able to read chapters to the Senior Law Handbook online at www.seniorlawday.org . I am a legal sponsor of this event, which is an important public service for seniors and their families. Sean Bell, Esq., is once again the editor of the well written and informative Senior Law Handbook. In addition to the sponsors, there will be many exhibitors in attendance.
A new feature of this year’s event will be an “Ask a Lawyer” opportunity during the event that is sponsored by Metro Volunteer Lawyers (MVL). MVL is an important community resource for people with low incomes. Its mission is: “To bridge the gap in access to justice by coordinating the provision of pro bono legal services by volunteer lawyers within the Denver Metro Area to people who could not otherwise afford legal services for their civil legal issues.” Over the years I have provided my services to people through this important and worthwhile program. As a new feature of Senior Law Day, attendees can sign up for a 15-Minute Ask a Lawyer Session with an attorney that will be limited to Trust and Estate and Elder Law issues.
Don’t miss this informative and accessible way to find out more about legal issues and related matters facing seniors in Colorado!
