We refer a variety of civil cases, including family law, bankruptcy, probate, immigration, consumer, landlord-tenant, and housing cases. In addition to individual client referrals, MVL also offers family law clinics that help pro se litigants prepare and file their own dissolution and custody cases in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, and Jefferson Counties. We welcome paralegals who can assist with individual client cases and with the Family Law Court Programs.
