In the Community
Pro Bono Work
Since its founding, Joseph Law Firm recognized the need for pro bono work in our community. To help meet that need, Joseph Law Firm has long committed itself to serving selected clients on a pro bono basis. The Colorado Supreme Court’s Pro Bono Legal Service Commitment and Recognition Program has recognized Joseph Law Firm’s pro bono commitment and achievement every year since 2006.
Joseph Law Firm decides whether to takes on a case pro bono after considering a number of factors, including:
- The demonstrated financial need of the potential pro bono client;
- The existing pro bono workload;
- The type of case and previous experiences with similar cases;
- The potential pro bono client’s commitment to cooperating and communicating with our staff;
- Whether the legal issues are expected to be novel or whether the case presents an exceptional opportunity for professional growth for the attorneys and staff involved.
