Balcomb & Green Has Served Western Slope Clients—And the Local Community—For 65 Years

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” —President John F. Kennedy

Our law firm, now called Balcomb & Green, was 10 years old when President Kennedy expressed these words in his 1963 Thanksgiving Day proclamation. We are proud to serve the Roaring Fork Valley and grateful to live and work here. In gratitude, we endeavor each year to give back to our community. We also recognize that each of you give to this community in myriad ways, and give thanks to you as well.

  • Civic Engagement: Our employees serve on the Glenwood Springs River Commission and Downtown Development Authority, and as directors of the Ninth Judicial District Bar Association, Rifle Animal Shelter, Roaring Fork Leadership, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, Grand River Hospital District, and United Way Battlement to the Bells.  

  • Youth Sports: We helped found Roaring Fork Cycling and continue to provide free services and financial support for this amazing program that empowers local children through biking. We also financially support Glenwood Springs High School sports and the Sunlight Winter Sports Club, and our employees are coaches in lacrosse, soccer, and cycling programs.

  • Arts & Outdoors: We provided free legal services for Wilderness Workshop to help evaluate Pitkin County’s proposed Crystal River valley trail. We also donate legal services and funds to The Glenwood Springs Summer of Music concert series.

  • Community: We financially support many community services and events, including Aspen Public Radio, Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, Garfield County Fair, Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, and the Glenwood Springs Big Summer Block Party.

  • Veterans: In recognition of their service, an employee volunteers and raises funds to install headstones to identify the graves of veterans who lack these important memorials.
