Wyoming State Bar President Brian Hultman presented the President’s Award to The Spence Law Firm, at this year’s Wyoming State Bar Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference. The award is reserved for a special person or organization that has a special meaning to the President. President Hultman noted the Firm’s commitment to the State Bar, and to the the Bar’s programs, events, and committees.
The Spence Law Firm’s partners consistently volunteer their time to be involved in important and meaningful committee/commission work with the Wyoming State Bar. For example, lawyers from The Spence Law Firm are currently serving on the Access to Justice Commission, the Wyoming Center for Legal Aid Boards of Directors, the Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics, the Civil Pattern Jury Instructions Committee, and the Mentoring Committee. Several Spence Law Firm attorneys also participate in the Wyoming State Bar’s Liberty Day Program, teaching fifth-grade students about the U.S. Constitution.
The Spence Law Firm is consistent sponsor of events like the State Bar’s Annual Meeting, the Women’s Legal Forum, and Wyoming’s Liberty Day Project. Three current Spence Firm partners have served as president of the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association, and several years ago the Firm formed L.A.W. (Lawyers and Advocates for Wyoming) which provides pro bono legal representation in defense and promotion of the public’s interest on substantive issues of health, safety, consumer rights, and civil liberties.
Spence Firm attorneys, Bob Krause, Mel Orchard, Emily Rankin, Kristeen Hand, and Mark Aronowitz were on hand to receive the award from bar president Brian Hultman.
