Boise Office Wins Idaho State Bar Pro Bono Award

Holland & Hart LLP is proud to announce that its Boise office has received the Idaho State Bar’s 6.1 Challenge Award in the Large Firm category for Pro Bono service. The 6.1 Challenge is an event, named after Idaho Rule of Professional Conduct 6.1, to recognize pro bono and public service participation activities from members of the Fourth District Bar.

Idaho’s Rule 6.1 suggests that every lawyer dedicate at least 50 pro bono hours annually to legal services, and to activities that improve the law, the legal system, and the profession. In 2016, Holland & Hart’s Boise office averaged 77.1 hours of pro bono services per attorney. 

“We are honored to receive the Large Firm Pro Bono service award this year and thank our legal community and local leaders for recognizing our positive contributions to our profession and to the Treasure Valley community,” said Brian Hansen, administrative partner in the firm’s Boise office. “Holland & Hart is committed to providing pro bono services and activities within our communities to make a difference.”

Applications were reviewed by members of the federal and state judiciary and local community leaders including the mayor of Boise. They evaluated the type and quality of the pro bono activities, the percentage of attorneys participating, and the number of hours provided to the community. Award categories include small, large, and government law offices.
