Blair Carter leads by example.

A fifth-generation military veteran and third-generation lawyer, Blair’s professional and personal life has been filled with role models who have helped shape her strong work ethic, competitive nature, and fierce defense of others.

Blair represents clients on matters pertaining to government contracting, space law, construction, and civil litigation. Recognizing large companies have complex moving parts, she uses her project management and engineering skills to help organize those parts to enable her clients to meet their goals.

Drawing on the leadership skills she learned at the U.S. Naval Academy and serving her country, she advocates for her clients by building strong arguments and fighting for them throughout each step of the litigation process. Blair cares deeply about the needs of her clients. She is confident and committed to winning and expects the same from the clients she represents. Her open communication with and responsiveness to clients enables her to build a true team-like atmosphere to each matter.

A determined goal-setter herself, Blair served with distinction as a naval nuclear engineer and surface warfare officer (a.k.a. ship driver) in the United States Navy. She was a varsity rower for the U.S. Naval Academy’s  Women’s Crew team. She has defense contracting experience in the world of Naval Special Warfare and earned her Masters in Engineering Management from Old Dominion University after law school.

Blair is a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, Colorado Women’s Bar Association, the El Paso County Bar, and Colorado Bar.

In her off time, Blair enjoys summers in the mountains, diving for lobster in Florida, and all things that involve a pair of skis in the winter.
