Showing The Way
Seth grew up in an inner-city community in Denver. As a child he witnessed domestic violence in his neighborhood and saw the paralyzing effects of alcohol and drug addiction and how it can tear families apart. At a very young age he pondered the question of why a severely abused woman would stay with her abuser. This experience was the primary motivator for Seth to decide to be a prosecutor in 2007. As a DA with 16 years of experience his most rewarding and most difficult duty was heading the Special Victim’s Crime Unit, tasked with prosecuting sex crimes in the 7th Judicial District.
Seth received his Juris Doctorate and Master of Business Administration from the University of Denver in 1997. Accordingly, he has experience both as an attorney as well as leadership and management experience from his time as a stockbroker for a Fortune 500 corporation. Seth continues to incorporate innovative management techniques to create prosecutions that are smarter, braver, and community responsive.
Seth enjoys the outdoor activities our Western Slope communities offer as well as playing the electric guitar and ballroom dancing with his wife Stacey.
The District Attorney serves the 7th Judicial District, which is comprised of six (6) counties: Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel. The many communities in the 7th Judicial District vary in character from rural to frontier, resort to remote, agricultural to mining, retirement to university.
Located on Colorado's Western Slope, the 7th Judicial District covers a geographical area in excess of 9,500 square miles. The DA's Office serves these counties and their many communities in four (4) separate offices, located in the towns of Delta, Gunnison, Montrose and Telluride.
