Pikes Peak Justice & Pro Bono Project

Mt. Carmel Veterans Center connects local Military Veterans seeking legal aid/services with the Pikes Peak Justice & Pro Bono Project. Attorneys volunteer their time to assist veterans with civil legal matters by providing legal advice. Cases they can help with include: Family Law, landlord cases, debt collection, harassment by debt collectors, disability SSI cases, overpayment from SSI cases, bankruptcy, foreclosure defense, probate planning & estate planning (wills), public benefits, food stamp issues, Veteran benefits, ID protection (can’t get drivers licenses, etc.). They cannot assist with any fee generating cases (i.e. suing someone, etc.).

Eligibility:Veterans (regardless of discharge status, era of service, or disability). There is an income eligibility requirement.

Contact:To schedule an appointment please call Mt. Carmel at 719-772-7000.

While some legal services for Veterans are free, others will have a fee.  However, some programs are discounted to provide further aid. By understanding your situation better, we can help you find the lawyers for Veterans that fit your financial need. Whether you need a pro-bono lawyer, or you’re looking for low-cost legal aid, we can connect you to the best resources for your needs.

Not all Military Veterans are eligible for legal aid in Colorado. If you are looking for a military attorney, you cannot have a dishonorable discharge on your record. Otherwise, the time you served, your current disabilities, and your income will not prohibit you from getting the attorney you need. Additionally, many Veteran Spouses are eligible for legal assistance in certain situations.

Besides the legal aid lawyers that we can connect you with, there are other valuable resources to be aware of. Before you search for “free notary services near me,” trust in Mt. Carmel Veterans Center to provide you with the information you need.  At the VA offices, we can connect you with non-lawyer advocates that will aid with your VA-related and other disability claims. In addition, we can help you find nonprofit and other membership organizations that provide further guidance to Colorado Veterans.
