"When people come to me with a problem, our first resort is not to turn to litigation. We take an objective, pragmatic approach to the problem and see if resolution is possible."

Stephen M. Whitmore is the head of the Civil Litigation Practice at Robinson & Henry, P.C. and brings more than 26 years of trial experience to the firm.
He has successfully litigated hundreds of cases in Colorado’s state, federal and administrative courts and his wealth of experience allows him to consistently provide competent, professional, and ethical counsel to a wide variety of companies and individuals. His areas of practice include commercial litigation, contract disputes, landlord and tenant matters, collections, foreclosures, replevins, construction defect and mechanics lien litigation, employment disputes, and bankruptcy litigation. Steve represents both plaintiffs and defendants, and his clients have included banks, management companies, lenders, construction trades, car dealers, small businesses, and individuals.
Steve’s goal is to achieve favorable results for his clients quickly and cost effectively, and he knows that representation by an attorney with the experience, ability, and willingness to take tough cases to trial is an effective tool in reaching that goal.
Steve attended the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a B.A. in psychology and played NCAA Division I hockey. After a professional hockey career in Europe, he returned to the U.S. to take a job as a stockbroker in Boulder, Colorado. In 1992 he obtained his law degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where he was a member of the Student Law Office. While attending law school, Steve worked as a clerk for the Honorable Martin P. Miller, former District Court Judge and Arapahoe County District Attorney.
A competitor by nature, Steve represents his clients with energy, intensity, and enthusiasm, and he takes pride in keeping his clients engaged and informed at every step of the litigation process.
Steve lives in Centennial with his wife and has two sons.
“We contacted Mr. Whitmore to get better balanced input on a potential embezzlement case in involving my mother-in-law. Mr. Whitmore has consistently offered sound legal advice but also has offered many optional paths for dealing with our matter, including potential costs and likelihood of recovery of legal fees. We continue to rely on Mr. Whitmore and will do so for some time as this matter slowly moves toward resolution. Mr. Whitmore exemplifies everything I look for in an attorney!”
“We built a new home on property that was vacant for approximately five years. During the five-year period a neighbor encroached on the property several feet with a fence, garden, parked trailers, cars, and shed. Neighborly talks had no effect on them moving any of the items. We were only met with anger, retaliation by putting more items on the property, and shouts of “Public Access rights” and “eminent domain” threats from the neighbor. We engaged Mr. Whitmore as our attorney, met with him, and followed his recommendations. The encroachments were removed after the neighbor received a letter from Mr. Whitmore explaining in firm words that he, as our attorney, was willing to pursue any means to recover the rightful property for us. The neighbor is still there, but we have since had a fence placed on the property lines, and things are fairly peaceful for us once more. We would without hesitation enlist the aid of Mr. Whitmore once again should our neighbor begin to disrespect our property owners’ rights. We cannot thank Mr. Whitmore enough for his opinions, recommendations, and legal services. His services, openness with recommendations, and friendly involvement made him more like a friend than an advocate. Mr. Whitmore deserve high praise and does not fit the stereotype of the many lawyers portrayed by a few. He is genuine and involved in the situation we brought before him. Highly Recommended!”
