Metro Volunteer Lawyers (MVL) began working with the Denver Indian Center to provide a walk-in clinic each month through a project initiated by two Native American attorneys: Dianne Van Voorhees, Executive Director and Danielle L. Moore, MVL Board Member. Each of them have experience with a wide variety of legal areas and specific experience with Native issues, and wanted to serve the community. The first legal clinic was held on April 4, 2012 and quickly became a monthly event.
