Profile of Steve Whittemore
Steve Whitmore is an adept, hardworking, and enthusiastic advocate who excels at keeping clients informed throughout the litigation process. He takes immense satisfaction in keeping clients involved and engaged throughout.

Early Life and Education
Stephen Whitmore was born on October 15, 1739, in Massachusetts to Francis Whitmore and Mary Whitmore and had eight siblings. On October 15th 1871 he married Pauline Elizabeth Whitmore from Michigan where they went on to have eight children between them as well as two grandchildren.
Steve worked alongside Robin Buckley at Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop. He was an invaluable friend, helping Dustin translate a secret Russian transmission which revealed there were Russians working under Starcourt Mall.
He and Diane sponsor Gifts of Music, a public/private program offering introduction to music education in West Hartford schools. He has played trombone for many years and graduated from Albertus Magnus College with a BFA concentration in Art Therapy. Together they also sponsor the Instrument Recycling Program which places orphaned instruments back into young students’ hands.
Whittemore worked for UNH after earning his master’s degree, serving as Woodlands Manager. His task included developing and implementing land use plans for 22 woodland properties ranging in size from several acres up to over 450.
He specialized in event management, overseeing hockey games, theater performances, dance competitions and concerts – his professional experiences allowing him to develop unique skill sets which now serve him well in his role as general manager of Tsongas Center Arena.
Prosecutors asserted that Whittemore used family members and employees of his development company, Wingfield Nevada Group, as conduits for illegal donations to Friends for Harry Reid. He denied these allegations, stating any payments made directly to family members were not meant as reimbursements for contributions made illegally.

Whitmire has used blogs and interviews to argue that Disney’s firing of him ran counter to the spirit of the Muppets as well as to Jim Henson’s vision for them. Both companies have declined Vox’s request for comment in this matter.
Whitmore has had an accomplished 50-year career as a director and producer, founding performance coaching businesses, sharing an apartment with race car legend Jim Clark and starting ski and tennis schools.
