Dear CBA members,

To address the issue of notarizing and executing legal documents during this time of social distancing, on Friday, Governor Polis issued Executive Order D 2020 019, suspending the personal appearance requirement for notarizations.   On Monday, the Secretary of State issued emergency, temporary rule 8 CCR 1505-11.  Both were effective upon execution. 

The CBA encourages our members to review their malpractice insurance coverage with their carriers and consider whether any of remote notarization, if performed remotely or electronically, would limit or invalidate your coverage on a particular matter.

  • Colorado Lawyers Helping Lawyers (CLHL)
    Colorado Lawyers Helping Lawyers is a lawyer-to-lawyer program supported by the CBA and is available to all lawyers, judges, law school students, and graduates. The focus of CLHL is on helping those who are experiencing alcohol, substance abuse, and mental health issues. This is achieved through confidential peer support, education, referral, and outreach. The peer support program offered through CLHL does not provide treatment or evaluation services. Rather, CLHL provides peer support groups in Denver and a statewide “virtual” telephone support group. All groups preserve the confidentiality of participants. In addition, three attorneys are available for direct phone contact to discuss individual's personal issue and strategies for dealing with those problems. These calls are not for emergencies — for those, people should contact 911. For a list of CLHL’s meeting times and locations, click here.
