Make History Colorado - Pro Bono Information
Commit and Be Recognized
The Colorado Supreme Court recognizes firms, solo practitioners, and in-house counsel groups who have committed to the annual goal of 50 hours of pro bono legal services, averaged across the firm and pro-rated for part-time attorneys, primarily for the indigent or organizations that serve these populations.
Commitment includes valuing at least 50 pro bono hours per year per attorney for all purposes of attorney evaluation, advancement, and compensation as the firm would value compensated client representation. This does not mean that a pro bono hour must necessarily be counted as a billable hour; rather, that the firm embraces performance of pro bono legal services as a core value and provides for a realistic billable hour expectation that encourages the performance of pro bono legal services as well.
