Kelly M. Neville, Brown & Hiser, LLC Laramie, Wyoming.

We are in unique times. As we all learn to navigate the “new normal,” know that the Bar is here to support each of our members. Also, our membership is stepping forward in amazing ways to support each other and the public through the pandemic.

The Bar’s website ( serves as a central source for up-to-date information on COVID-19 important to your practice as you navigate cases through this time. It is regularly updated with links to various court orders, announcements, and frequently asked questions.
