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:

  • “Fundamentals of Bankruptcy Law and Procedure in Wyoming” (National Business Institute - 4/25/2002-8/25/2003)
  • “Basic Bankruptcy Law and Practice” (Sterling Education Services - 5/31/01)
  • “Basic Bankruptcy” (Sterling Education Services - 5/25/04)
  • “Aligning Your Practice with the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005” (National Business Institute - 10/19/05). 
  • “Fundamentals of Consumer Bankruptcy (Sterling Education Services - 3/13/08)
  • ​“Creditors Rights in Bankruptcy” (Sterling Education Service - 10/12/2011)
  • ​“Protection of Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy (Sterling Education Services - 10/3/13)
  • “9th Annual Tri-State Federal Bankruptcy Bar Seminar” (Park City, UT - 9/19/13)
  • ​“Landlord-Tenant Law” (Cheyenne, WY - 5/13/2014)

​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.
