I have noticed that the Colorado Springs hearing offices have changed to a new location. I no longer practice given I am retired but while checking the website I now see the change of location. The previous offices are not that far from the new location but I always felt the old location was a bit cramped. Finding a place to sit down with a claimant to review before a hearing was sometimes difficult. If there were several witnesses it became quite cumbersome. Hopefully the new location is more convenient and spacious. A number of years ago the workers comp hearings were held at the local courthouse. The courthouse needed that space to expand its services and the state then sought space elsewhere. I recall having hearings behind a library in a schoolroom. The last offices were an improvement but I suspect the new location is even better.
