With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The attorneys of the Human Services Section dedicate their careers to strengthening our community through support of our most vulnerable populations, including at-risk children and adults. As in-house counsel for the Denver Department of Human Services, we advise, train, and represent the Department in its mission to protect and ensure the support of children, stabilize families, and achieve permanent solutions that are in the best interests of children and youth. Our attorneys support the internal framework of the Department of Human Services through the employment law and claims unit, providing access to public records, and prosecuting fraud. We advise the Career Service Board, the Civil Service Commission, the Welfare Reform Board, and the Denver Human Services Board.
