The “Colorado Civil Pretrial Handbook” is written by Denver attorney, Mary Price Birk. Ms. Birk carefully analyzes the requirements of the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure, along with other relevant legal authorities, and provides helpful tips on practice and strategy that she developed in her own practice.
