About the Office of Legislative Legal Services

The Office of Legislative Legal Services is the non-partisan, in-house counsel for the Colorado General Assembly and writes laws, produces statutes, reviews administrative rules, comments on initiated measures, and serves as a resource of legislative information for the public. The Office of Legislative Legal Services is under the direction of the Committee on Legal Services.

The Office of Legislative Legal Services is committed to customer service, professional competence, and the highest standards of integrity. Our vision is to serve the Colorado General Assembly and the citizens of the state, providing these services with excellence, to forward the cause of effective self-government.

It is important to note, the Office of Legislative Legal Services is neither authorized nor allocated the resources to provide legal advice or counsel to private citizens. As legal counsel to the Colorado General Assembly, the Office of Legislative Legal Services is responsible for providing legal advice to the legislature as an organization, but does not serve as legal counsel or advisor to individual citizens.
