ATTORNEY AT LAW
Copyright © Paul Hunter - Attorney at Law. All rights reserved.
I am a bankruptcy attorney licensed to practice law in Wyoming. I specialize in helping Wyoming businesses and individuals facing serious financial challenges. My goal is to provide the highest quality bankruptcy legal representation for a reasonable, affordable fee.
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a B.A. in History in 1980. I graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law in 1984. I was on the Land and Water Law Review and authored "Increased Antitrust Exposure for Wyoming Cities and Towns: The Municipal Action Exemption to the Antitrust Laws.
After graduating from the UW College of Law, I was an associate with an experienced bankruptcy practitioner for over two and a half years. My primary practice was in consumer bankruptcy.
In 1988, I joined the US Trustee's Office as a staff attorney. The United States Trustee's Office is a federal agency within the Department of Justice. The U.S. Trustee's Office is responsible for the administration of all bankruptcy cases in Wyoming. In 1996, I was promoted and became the Assistant U.S. Trustee for the District of Wyoming. While working at the US Trustee's Office, I obtained significant experience in all chapters of bankruptcy.
In 1999, I left the US Trustee's Office and opened my office in Cheyenne. I enjoy helping people find sound and creative solutions to their financial challenges.
I have been designated by Thompson Reuters as a “Super Lawyer” in consumer bankruptcy, which includes attorney evaluation in a patented, multiphase selection process.
I was the recipient of the Outstanding Pro Bono Service Recognition Award from Wyoming Legal Aid in 2008 and 2014.
I taught Bankruptcy Law at the University of Wyoming Law School as an adjunct professor in the Spring of 2012.
I also have served as faculty on numerous seminars entitled:
It has been a great pleasure and honor to have represented so many folks in the bankruptcy court over my 32 year career. Although I will miss many aspects of practicing law, I will be retiring over the next couple of years. I plan to stop accepting new clients April 1, 2018. At this time, I intend to continue representing my current clients until their pending cases are concluded. If you have retained me prior to April 1, 2018 I would ask that we try to complete the filing by June 1, 2018.
