Anna Reeves Olson
Law School: University of Wyoming College of Law
I received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Wyoming in 1999 and a J.D. (with honors) from the UW College of Law in 2003. Following law school, I clerked for the First Judicial District Court in Cheyenne for two years. I then moved to New York City where I clerked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Since 2007,1 have been a partner with my father, Weston Reeves, at the Park Street Law Office in Casper, where my practice concentrates on professional negligence defense, business transaction disputes, and personal injury. I am admitted to practice in all Wyoming and Colorado courts, as well as the Tenth Circuit. You can reach me at the Park Street Law Office, 242 S. Park Street, Casper, WY 82601; (307) 265-3843; or aro@ parkstreetlaw.com.
I Became a Lawyer Because my father, Wes, is a lawyer and my hero. He is brilliant and I wanted the opportunity to learn from him. I saw him make a difference in the lives of many people and I wanted to have a similar impact. It was the best decision that I have ever made.
As a lawyer, I have a knack for getting witnesses to talk to me. I am an easy person to talk to and people open up to me. This has proven to be tremendously helpful in my practice.
My best advice for new lawyers is always visit the scene. You cannot fully understand the facts or your client's point of view unless you do so.
My favorite place in Wyoming is office garden. My father spent the last 30 years growing vegetables, roses, fruit trees and grape vines. In the summer time, it is a wonderful place to meet with colleagues...
