Licensed Legal Paraprofessional

What is a Licensed Legal Paraprofessional “LLP”?

The Colorado Supreme Court has approved the licensure of legal paraprofessionals, designed to make legal representation more widely available and more affordable to people in some family law cases.

Licensed Legal Professionals (LLPs) may file court documents, represent their clients in mediation, provide legal advice and attend hearings to answer a judge’s questions but will be unable to present oral arguments or question witnesses.
