Get Reimbursed for Expenses Relating to Your Pro Bono Work

The Wyoming State Bar appreciates pro bono services provided by its members. Tough there is no statutory or rule provision for reimbursement of such expenses, it is the policy of the Bar to provide limited reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. These reimbursements may not cover all actual expenses as the limit per case is $1,000. At the conclusion of the representation, you may file a request for reimbursement, which must be accompanied by receipts for each expense claimed. For more information and the reimbursement claim form, visit https://www.wyomingbar.org/for-lawyers/pro-bono/. Questions should be directed to Cathy Duncil, Pro Bono Coordinator, at (307) 432-2104 or by e-mail at cduncil@wyomingbar.org.
