                  Executive Director - Colorado Legal Services

                    Colorado Legal Services (CLS) seeks an Executive Director to lead and advance the mission of this renowned statewide nonprofit civil legal aid organization. CLS is the only organization in the state that provides a full range of free civil legal aid to low-income individuals and families in every Colorado County.

                    The mission of CLS is to provide meaningful access to high quality, civil legal services in the pursuit of justice for as many low-income persons and members of vulnerable populations throughout Colorado as possible. It is a daunting, but absolutely critical, mission. In the words of CLS’s current Executive

                    Director, “the only thing less popular than a poor person these days is a poor person with a lawyer.”

                    With an annual budget of approximately $13 million, CLS provides high quality legal service to as many as possible of the almost 1.4 million Coloradans who qualify financially for its services.  Priority is given to those in greatest social and economic need. CLS serves the entirety of the 104,000-square-mile State of Colorado (the eighth largest state geographically in the country) through 13 regional offices. CLS currently has a staff of 150, including 80 attorneys and 55 paralegals, who are supported by administrative, financial, grant management and technology personnel. Staff legal work is supplemented by a robust private attorney involvement program.

                    The successful candidate will succeed CLS’s long-time and much respected Executive Director, Jonathan Asher, whose involvement with legal aid in Colorado goes back more than 50 years and is known for his dedication to the provision of excellent legal services to low-income residents of the state. Jon will leave CLS next March with the strongest possible foundation, a dedicated staff, relationships throughout the state’s communities, strong support within the bar and a solid financial position that provides the potential for flexibility and innovation. This is a unique opportunity for a leader with courage and commitment to build on a storied history of excellence and shepherd CLS into a post-pandemic future. There will be an opportunity for a transition period before Jon leaves to allow for a smooth assumption of responsibilities. The Board of Directors is committed to supporting a new Executive Director in providing creative and innovative leadership, both internally and in the state and national legal communities.

                      High priority roles and responsibilities of the Executive Director will include:
                      • Engaging, inspiring and leading a team of staff, Board members, clients and community members in realizing CLS’s mission, and refining and adapting that mission to meet new challenges and opportunities
                      • Ensuring CLS’s continued financial health and stability with oversight of its financial management systems, practices, and budget
                      • Inspiring dedication by staff to excellence in service to clients throughout the highly urbanized and the remote rural communities served by CLS’s 13 offices
                      • Advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-oppression within CLS, the legal system and client communities
                      • Involving and developing CLS senior and middle managers in reaching CLS’ vision, goals and strategies
                      • Leading a strategic planning process that will shape administrative systems to best support CLS’s significant growth, address the changing nature of the work environment, articulate the desired balance of systemic impact work and high-quality individual client assistance, and enhance organizational unity post-COVID
                      • Embracing and promoting innovation with technology for efficient and effective programmatic administration and client service
                      • Maintaining and enhancing CLS’s role among city, state and national poverty advocacy organizations and coordinating its work with these groups
                      • Serving as an effective ambassador for CLS and the clients it serves by nurturing collaborative relationships with funders, private bar and judicial leaders, legislators, private donors and business and civic leaders

                      The successful candidate will demonstrate:

                      • Passion for the mission of providing meaningful access to high quality, civil legal services to low- income and vulnerable populations
                      • A JD and license to practice law, in good standing in Colorado, or eligibility for admission to the Colorado bar in a reasonable period of time
                      • Ability to inspire dedication by staff to excellence and to clients
                      • Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in all program activities and client services and experience advancing DEI efforts within an organizational structure and with community partners
                      • Ability to represent, explain and advocate for support for civil legal services for low-income people
                      • Ability to read and understand financial statements and lead the budgeting process and deploy scarce resources for greatest impact
                      • Substantial experience in the following areas:
                        •  The practice of law, public interest preferred

                        • Enjoyment in meeting staff, funders, board members, clients and community leaders and establishing long term relationships
                      • Affinity for fundraising and establishing deep connections in the community
                      • Ability and willingness to travel throughout the CLS service area and beyond
