Colorado’s judges and attorneys have spent years developing rules that govern the conduct of attorneys. The most important of these are the Rules of Professional Conduct. The rules are lengthy and cover many topics other than your rights as a client. And things don’t stop there: each rule is followed by comments that try to shed more light on what the rule means. The Colorado Bar Association from time to time also develops Formal Ethics Opinions to address more specific situations. Colorado’s rules are enforced by the Colorado Supreme Court’s Attorney Regulation Counsel. Complaints about our conduct, or that of any Colorado attorney, can be directed there.
