We are proud to announce that the Colorado Supreme Court recognized The Harris Law Firm for our pro bono work. Under Rule 6.1, the courts commend law firms who meet their goal for providing pro bono legal services to low income, underserved populations.
The Colorado Supreme Court’s pro bono initiative requires every attorney in the state do 50 hours of legal services for no fees. These services should be offered to lower income individuals who may not have access to quality legal representation. Attorneys can also offer pro bono legal services to organizations who help those with limited means.
The Colorado Supreme Court honors the firms that average 50 hours per attorney every year in April. The Harris Law Firm is proud to have met their goal for pro bono service every year since 2008. 2016 is the firm’s 9th consecutive year.
Peggy Walker, a senior attorney at the firm, proudly accepted the award on behalf of the entire firm. In 2009, she was named “Pro Bono Coordinator” for the firm. She coordinates with the other attorneys in the firm to help them offer legal services to underprivileged individuals.
Giving back to our community is one of the key tenants of the Harris Law Firm. We believe everyone deserves skilled legal representation, regardless of their background. We particularly care about cases where children are involved. We want to minimize the conflict and protect the innocent. We are honored the Supreme Court recognized our achievements. We will continue to offer our services to those who need it.
