Todd M. Starr is the kind of lawyer who, instead of telling his client’s “can’t” or “no”, talks about how to get them to success. Todd uses all of his experience and skills to help his clients achieve their goals.
Todd is often heard explaining that he is an entrepreneur and business person who happens to be a lawyer. Because of this, he is able to see matters from his client’s point of view.
Todd has a unique perspective on the practice of law. He understands litigation because he has been in the courtroom, plenty of times; commercial real estate development, because as a county official he has had to tackle those issues from the government side of the equation; banking and business, because he has been a bank director; and, administration, because he has run both a county and a law firm.
In short, in one lawyer, his clients get the kind of knowledge and experience you ordinarily find only assembling a team of people.
Todd received his B.S. Degree in Business Administration from Graceland College, his law degree from Creighton University and his LL.M. from Boston University.
Todd practiced law in Nebraska for nine years before returning to Colorado. In Colorado, he primarily practiced in Cortez where he served as President of Dyer, Dilts & Starr, P.C., one of the oldest law firms on the western slope, before forming The Starr Law Firm.
Most recently, he served as the County Attorney for Archuleta County, Colorado, where he also twice served as Interim Administrator, leading a staff of 158 and having primary responsibility for an annual budget of approximately $35 million.
Todd’s practice emphasizes commercial litigation, real estate litigation and the representation of local governments and quasi-utilities. Todd’s clients have included the Montezuma Water Company, Dolores County, The Citizens State Bank, Four Corners Community Bank, The Dove Creek State Bank, Alpine Bank, The Ken Caryl National Bank, Vectra Bank and many large ranches.
Todd was elected twice by his peers to serve two terms on the Executive Committee of the Colorado Bar Association representing all of Western Colorado. He has been recognized by both the Omaha Nebraska and West Jeffco Chambers of Commerce for his leadership skills. Currently, Todd serves on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of Region 9 Economic Development District and the Shanta Foundation.
