Colorado Supreme Court Recognizes Burg Simpson for Providing Pro Bono Services
Burg Simpson Shareholder Tom Henderson and the entire Burg Simpson team are proud to announce that the firm has been recognized by the Colorado Supreme Court for their ongoing commitment to providing legal support to those in need.
Every year, the Colorado Supreme Court recognizes law firms that have committed to the annual goal of 50 hours of pro bono legal services offered by their Colorado-licensed attorneys. The organization states that the substantial majority of the pro bono work provided by law firms must have been for the benefit of persons of limited means and/or organizations serving persons of limited means. Additionally, the Colorado Supreme Court affirms that the law firms must value the attorneys’ commitment to pro bono work for all purposes of attorney evaluation, advancement, and compensation in the firm.
For the calendar year of 2019, the Colorado Supreme Court has added Burg Simpson to their list of organizations who have achieved the annual goal.
Burg Simpson Shareholder Tom Henderson is the Chair of the Bad Faith Insurance Division of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Department and the President of the Arapahoe County Bar Association (ACBA). As the leader of the ACBA, Tom Henderson is seeking to expand access to Arapahoe County’s legal system by encouraging his fellow members to offer pro bono legal services. During the course of his term, Tom Henderson has consistently issued a call to action to his colleagues to help to increase access to counsel and legal assistance and to improve the justice delivery systems that serve people who are otherwise unable to afford lawyers. Tom Henderson and his colleagues at the ACBA are dedicated to serving those in the community who desperately need pro bono legal services.
As a national litigation law firm, the leaders of Burg Simpson recognize that the role we play in the communities is just as critical as our role in the courtroom. Our ingrained culture of service and our passionate desire to make a difference in the lives of others in our communities is woven into the fabric of our firm and all our employees nationwide.
All of us at Burg Simpson firmly believe we have much to offer to our communities. In addition to making financial contributions to worthwhile causes, our lawyers and staff use their professional skills to support a variety of charities, nonprofits, and civic institutions through pro bono work, board service, and volunteerism.
