David C. Hallford
David is a partner at Balcomb & Green with an extensive water law background whose practice currently focuses within the Colorado River basin with some activity in the Front Range and Eastern Slope river basins. David’s work has been varied within the field of water law, including several significant cases and his continuing position as a special counsel for the Colorado River Water Conservation District (CRWCD).
David started law school at the University of Denver in 1977. While in law school he clerked at a small oil and gas law firm and then at a larger firm with a small water law practice where he developed an interest in property law and litigation. After graduating from DU in 1980, David worked as an associate attorney at Calkins Kramer Grimshaw & Harring. He was in a small water law practice and conducted “trials” in the South Platte River water court. He then moved to Saunders Snyder Ross & Dickson (SSR&D) in Denver.
In 1993, David became in-house general counsel for Colorado River Water Conservation Board and moved to Glenwood Springs. As CRWCD general counsel, he became familiar with much of Colorado’s Western Slope and its water users and water leaders. He then became water attorney for Eagle County, Lake County, the City of Fountain, Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District and others, and represented Public Service Company as a special counsel in a major change of South Platte River rights that culminated in an important Colorado Supreme Court decision.
David was born in 1955 in Enid, Oklahoma and raised in northern New Mexico where his father, the only medical doctor in the county at one time, exposed him to hunting and fishing. David became a debater at Guymon High School and attended Oklahoma Panhandle State University on a debate scholarship.
