About The Bar

The First JD Bar Association is an organization of licensed attorneys with ties to Gilpin and Jefferson counties, located just west of Denver, Colorado. We have approximately eight hundred lawyers and judges who are members.

Jefferson county includes a mix of suburban communities, foothills towns, and open spaces of every description and terrain. Gilpin county rises high to the northwest of Jefferson county. Traveling up into this county, the population centers around Denver are left behind, and the natural beauty that drew early pioneers remains largely intact.

Settling rugged terrain required rugged individualists. That pioneer spirit continues to run deep in our heritage. Other necessary attributes to take on “Rocky” mountains were cooperation, and a sense of community. These qualities also remain as a point of pride in our members, and in our court system. Enjoy your visit to our website. We offer our hospitality, and our members offer their service.
