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
