Ireland Stapleton Expands to Western Slope

Ireland Stapleton Pryor & Pascoe announced today that it has opened an office in Grand Junction.

Grand Junction attorney Jeffrey Hurd has also joined the firm as a director, and he will lead the firm’s Western Colorado office.

“Ireland Stapleton is excited to be expanding into Western Colorado,” said managing director Erica Tarpey. “We have had a client base on the Western slope for decades and are committed to providing solutions to challenging and sophisticated legal issues throughout the state and the region.”

Hurd, raised in Grand Junction, has experience working on complex litigation and regulatory matters as well as internal investigations and appeals. His practice focuses on rural electric cooperatives and representing various corporate entities, special districts and municipalities. Currently, he serves as chairman of the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce. After law school, Hurd clerked for Judge Timothy Tymkovich of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Former Colorado Secretary of State and current Ireland Stapleton attorney, Bernie Buescher, will split his time between the Denver and Grand Junction offices. Buescher, a Grand Junction native, previously represented Grand Junction in the Colorado legislature.
