Scott McNair Balcomb

Scott McNair Balcomb, Attorney for Glenwood Springs, CO
Scott is a former partner at Balcomb & Green who retired in 2016. He began working for the firm under its former name of Delaney & Balcomb, together with his father, Kenneth Balcomb, in 1972. Kenneth was heavily involved in water resource issues throughout the West, serving as principal counsel in cases that established the jurisdiction of state courts to adjudicate water rights for the United States.

From 1971 through 1982 Scott was heavily involved in interstate water issues, working alongside his father as general counsel of the Colorado River Water Conservation District. Between 1972 and 2000 Scott participated in hundreds of Colorado water court proceedings involving all types of water use. From 2001 – 2008 Scott served as Upper Colorado River Commissioner and the Governor’s Representative for the Seven States “Group,” where he was principally responsible for protecting Colorado’s position on the Colorado River with respect to water rights.

Scott earned his undergraduate degree in English at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire in 1969. His time “back East” only confirmed his love of the Western part of the country, and particularly Colorado. He only applied to one law school, the University of Colorado Law School, which he attended from 1969 to 1972.
