Attorney participation in the CO-AG legal referral service is consistent with the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, which allow an attorney to pay the usual charges of a not-for-profit lawyer referral service (Colo. RPC 7.2(b)(2)). In addition, this referral service is structured to specifically conform with the most recent guidance from the Colorado Bar Association Ethics Committee’s Formal Opinion 106 (Ethics Opinion 106 (adopted June 19, 1999; revised Oct. 21, 2013)). Should you have further questions regarding the ethical considerations of participation in our referral service, we would be happy to provide you more information.
