Gunnison Country Times, Gunnison, CO

Wilderson Lock & Hill, LLC, based in Gunnison, Colorado, announced today that the law firm will begin operating under the new name of Law of the Rockies. At the same time, the firm unveiled a redesigned website -

“The name change represents the evolution of the firm.” said Rufus Wilderson, the firm’s manager. “Over time and with the benefit of ever increasing technological advances, our services have expanded to representing clients throughout Colorado. We believe the name Law of the Rockies better characterizes our practice than the traditional method of using the partner’s surnames for the firm’s name.”

“Our firm has developed into one of the preeminent law firms on the Western Slope. We are providing sophisticated legal services of the same high quality available in the Denver metropolitan area, but we are doing it here locally, at affordable prices.” said senior member Marcus Lock.

Law of the Rockies is the largest law firm in the Gunnison valley. Members Rufus Wilderson, Marcus Lock, Jacob With, and Kendall Burgemeister, along with Of Counsel attorneys John R. Hill and Curtis Smelser will continue to provide legal counsel and representation in the areas of real estate law, civil litigation, water law, business law, construction law, land use planning, agricultural law, and estate planning and probate. Law of the Rockies offers free case consultations to new clients. “Choosing a lawyer can be intimidating,” said Wilderson. “We want to ease any fears by offering clients a chance to sit down and talk openly about their case without incurring substantial costs.”
