Professionalism Committee

The Boulder County Bar Association has helped promote the fair and efficient resolution of disputes in Boulder County by sponsoring the Professionalism Committee for over twenty years. Through informal discussion, mediation, or referrals through the Bar to experienced mentors, the fifteen member committee attempts to resolve professionalism complaints received from members of the public, attorneys and judges that relate to attorneys practicing in Boulder County.

The Committee adopted the Boulder County Bar Association Principles of Professionalism, which sets forth fundamental concepts regarding the conduct of attorneys and judges between themselves and towards staff, parties, clients and other members of the public. To view, click here.

Thirteen local attorneys and two 20th Judicial District judges are appointed to the Professionalism Committee by the Boulder Bar Association Board of Directors. One of the attorneys is on call each week to respond to calls, and the Boulder Bar refers complainants to the on-call attorney. The judges on the committee do not take calls nor mediate disputes. The on-call schedule is available through the Boulder Bar office and is updated in the monthly Bar newsletter.

The Professionalism Committee does not handle calls related to matters that are under the jurisdiction of the Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Regulation or Judicial Discipline Commission. Some attorney fee disputes are referred to the Colorado Bar Association Legal Fee Arbitration Committee. We would like to make it explicitly clear that the committee does not address alleged violations of the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct or the Rules of Judicial Discipline.
