Be Recognized for Your Firm or In-house Counsel Group’s Pro BonoAchievement

Each year, the Colorado Supreme Court recognizes law firms and in-house counsel groups that commit to an annual goal of 50 hours of pro bonolegal services per attorney, averaged across the firm annually for licensed Colorado attorneys and pro-rated for part-time attorneys, primarily for the indigent or nonprofit organizations that serve the indigent.  Firms and groups that achieve this goal in the previous calendar year receive certificates signed by the justices and your firm or group will be listed on the judicial Web page.  If your firm or in-house counsel group met the goal in 2011, or if your firm or group would like to make the annual commitment starting in calendar year 2012, please notify Justice Gregory Hobbs by Feb. 15 at

The event is sponsored by the Colorado Access to Justice Commission, Colorado Bar Association, and the Colorado Supreme Court. More details to come.
