PrintGet Found—Update Your Listing Today

Another benefit of membership—the CBA’s online Find A Lawyer Directory is now mobilized and responsive to any device type, making it easy for potential clients to access and search. Advanced search options enable people to find you by section, committee, or local bar membership, as well as geographical or practice area, and whether or not you accept alternative fee arrangements*.

All CBA members receive a free premium listing until Sept. 1, 2016. Once the trial expires, premium listings will be available for purchase by CBA members only. Premium listings include fields of practice, biography, education, languages spoken, local bar plus CBA section and committee memberships, and many more ways for people to search and find you. Your basic CBA member listing information has been automatically transferred from the print edition of the 2015 Colorado Legal Directory, but to take advantage of your free premium enhancements, you must update the information by logging into the directory and select the “Update My Find a Lawyer Listing” option on your member dashboard. Click here for more information about updating and enhancing your listing.

If you would like to reference your listing from the previous version of Find A Lawyer, sign into the CBA’s website, click on the “My Cobar” tab on the top right, and choose “Access your old Find A Lawyer listing,” where you are able to copy and paste the information into your new listing.

*The alternative fee arrangement check box provides a way the public can sort for lawyers who provide “alternative fee arrangements,” such as limited scope representation(unbundling) [as set forth in Colo. Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 1.2], flat fee, sliding scale, use of credit cards, payment plans, etc. One resource for ethical considerations, rules, and cases regarding fee arrangements is the Colorado Bar Association’s “Successful Business Planning: Representing the Moderate Income Client” found here.
