About Lasater & Martin was founded in 1993, by J. Scott Lasater with the commitment that the firm would be guided by principles of truth, fairness, dignity, and respect. As a solo and then a small firm practitioner, Scott represented farmers, ranchers, individuals, businesses and counties and police and sheriff departments in trials across the western slope, from Craig and Steamboat Springs, to Grand Junction, Delta, Montrose, Cortez and Durango. Scott traveled across the continental divide and tried cases in Trinidad, Alamosa, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver, Loveland and Fort Collins. Scott also tried cases across the eastern plains, from Sterling to Fort Morgan, Burlington to Lamar. Scott is the Chief Operating Officer of the firm.

In 2001, Janet Martin joined the firm with over a dozen years of litigation experience in Texas. At the end of 2004, Janet was made a named partner, and she is the firm’s President. Over the years, Janet has helped build an impressive array of talent within the law firm, and an equally impressive client loyalty and has helped the firm grow from a small to a mid-sized firm. In 2017, Janet opened the firm’s office in Las Colinas, Texas. Janet’s mission has never deviated from the firm’s founding principles.
