Claire Fuller

Paralegal

Claire Fuller joined the Spence Law Firm in 2013 and currently assists Tyson Logan. She is driven to do all that she can for clients in their search for justice through a combination of compassion, dedication, hard work, and a fair bit of stubbornness. Claire particularly enjoys trial work and the preparation that it takes to get a case through trial successfully. It may be long days and late nights, but each minute helps advance a client’s case. She does all she can each day, knowing that the jurors can come to the right decision only when they have all the information they need. Claire truly believes in the work she does at the Spence Law Firm.

Claire’s past work experience is varied: she has worked as a cave surveyor for the Forest Service, a baker and pastry chef, a fire ecology research assistant, a retail salesperson, a documentary movie production manager, and a community organizer for a conservation oriented nonprofit organization. It took her a while to find her calling—supporting people in their fight for justice—but she hasn’t looked back since starting her job as a litigation paralegal.

Claire was born and raised in Jackson Hole, and lives on her family’s ranch at the base of Teton Pass. Her husband runs an organic garden on the ranch, raising salad greens outside and tomatoes in the protection of a greenhouse. They board about a dozen horses and are constantly involved in working on the ranch. Claire studied music at Vassar College, and later received a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Northern Arizona University, where she earned the Undergraduate Women in Geology Prize, the Headlee Scholarship for Academic Excellence, a Hooper Undergraduate Research Award, and a NASA SpaceGrant Research Internship. She later continued her studies at the University of Wyoming, obtaining a Master in Public Administration degree. During graduate school, she studied abroad in South Africa, was awarded the Thurman Arnold Book Award, and was admitted to the Epsilon Beta chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha.

Currently, Claire is enrolled in the Hybrid Program at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota—the first distance education law program approved by the American Bar Association. Courses are conducted primarily online, with intensive week-long, in-person sessions at least twice per year. She anticipates graduating with a law degree in May 2018, and is focusing her studies in trial advocacy and litigation.

Outside of work and school, Claire volunteers her time for local nonprofits. She is the Secretary of the Board of Directors of the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, and plays viola with the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra when time allows. She has been active in local government, and is an elected precinct committeewoman. Her hobbies include cooking, playing outside, and encouraging her dog not to bark whenever anyone knocks at the front door.
