PRO BONO WORK
Reilly Pozner is a vibrant part of the Denver community where we live and work. As part of our culture we strongly encourage our lawyers and professional staff to participate in pro bono legal representation and community service activities. Our pro bono work includes not only large, complex cases involving broad-based policy issues, but also the representation of individuals who could not otherwise afford legal representation. In 2011, we were named the “Law Firm of the Year” by the Colorado Lawyers Committee and received the organization’s award of special recognition for our work in the Legal Center v. Bicha, et al. matter.
Reilly Pozner’s John M. McHugh served as the lead attorney in the pro bono representation of nine same-sex couples who are challenging the constitutionality of Colorado’s laws prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying and refusing to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples entered into in other states. McDaniel-Miccio, et al. v. State of Colorado. Major public pleadings filed in the action captioned McDaniel-Miccio, et al. v. State of Colorado and Brinkman, et al. v. Long. Both actions were consolidated in front of the Honorable C. Scott Crabtree of the Seventeenth Judicial District.
