When a county north of Denver last year started a hotline for the numerous pro se litigants at its courthouse, CenturyLink Inc. and law firm Bryan Cave answered the call. Literally.

The communication company’s Denver legal department and the local office of Bryan Cave were instrumental in establishing the pro bono hotline, which proved so efficient and effective that Colorado court officials want to use the model elsewhere.

The Adams County hotline is only the latest pro bono project for CenturyLink’s legal department in Denver, where 44 of the company’s 91 attorneys are based. The large legal team in Denver is a holdover from Monroe, La.-based CenturyLink’s acquisition of Qwest Communications International Inc. in 2011. Another holdover is the Denver department’s commitment to pro bono work, which enjoys the support of CenturyLink’s home office.
