About me

An Affordable, Accessible resource for tenants that need legal defense in wrongful eviction actions. I am driven to improve the lives of Colorado Tenants by not only defending their rights, but also homelessness prevention by providing advocacy, collaboration and education (ACE). 


  


Upon graduation from the University of Denver College of Law in 2005, Ms. Jones practiced with an insurance defense law firm for five years. She represented businesses, insurance companies and individuals in federal and state court matters. Ms. Jones believed that in starting her own practice in Denver, Colorado, she could be more effective in helping people deal with a variety of legal issues at an affordable cost. Ms. Jones founded Colorado Affordable Legal Services, LLC for that purpose. Since then, CALS has allowed Ms. Jones to fully realize her passion for helping people at all levels of litigation and protection. April treats every client with respect and integrity.

  • Eric L. Nesbitt

    I highly endorse April. I know her as a fellow lawyer in the community, and I also recently appeared opposite of her in a landlord/tenant matter. She is extremely knowledgeable in landlord and tenant matters, and I will be referring clients to her for any matters that my firm cannot handle. April is a consummate professional and very competent real estate attorney.
