Kent Chalmers, Attorney

As a young married father I will never forget the day my parents came over and placed the largest binder I have ever seen on my kitchen table and invited me to read it.  A short time later, I was in awe that they had in place a plan not only for their property but also for their remains after they pass away whether they were in the United States or abroad.  Of course I knew a little about wills and estate planning but as a young police officer that was far from my mind.  Fast forward 10 years, I was sitting in my law school class learning about estate planning and amazed at the opportunities that I could provide for clients if I focused in this field.  After law school,  when it was time to practice there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to assist clients as an estate planning attorney.  After 2 years of learning from an incredible estate planner and friend, my dream of owning my own law firm became a reality. 


When I am not working, my time is spent with my wife and kids.  Stacy and I were married in 2005 after meeting in college.  Our 3 kids range from teenagers to elementary school and our time is focused around them, their school, and our church activities.


A little bit more- 

I graduated law school in the top 10 percent of my class.  I had the opportunity to extern for the Honorable Judge Frank D. Whitney with the US District Court Western North Carolina.  Prior to law school, I spent 10 years as a police officer with the Rexburg Police Department in Rexburg, Idaho where I had the privilege during my last three years of working as a School Resource Officer with the students at Madison Jr. High.  I am also a proud Eagle Scout.
