Kent H. Whitmer
Kent is the founding member of The Whitmer Law Firm, LLC. He graduated from the University of Colorado in 1989 with a law degree and an MBA. From 1991 to 2015, in addition to being a solo practitioner, Kent owned and managed Grand County Title and Escrow Company, Inc.
Kent’s prior connection to the title business provided him with extensive experience in real estate matters. He represents buyers and sellers, developers, ranchers and other land owners in connection with their transactional or litigation real estate needs.
In 2017, Kent assumed retiring attorney Stan Cazier’s Grand County water practice. With that acquisition, Kent’s practice has expanded to include all types of water matters, including representing clients in water court with their water applications, representing water and sanitation districts, and representing a water conservancy district.
While the firm’s practice is general in nature, Kent’s practice is now limited primarily to water and real estate matters. Kent is licensed to practice law in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.
Kent is married to Christina, the Grand County Treasurer and Public Trustee. Kent and Christina live on a working—but not quite self-supporting—ranch located north of Kremmling, Colorado. When not practicing law, Kent is usually working on the ranch, enjoying family and friends, hunting or skiing.
