Business/Commercial Litigation – Our business litigation division can tackle any number of legal issues that involve your company, such as helping you resolve business disputes, oversee employment and environmental litigation, navigate real estate and ranch issues, as well as litigating any securities matters you face.

Criminal Defense/DUI – Our Wyoming office is staffed with trial attorneys who’ve successfully defended a wide range of felony and misdemeanors charges, including DUIs, vehicular assault/homicide, domestic violence, traffic crimes, thefts, drugs, assault and battery, and auto accidents, just to name a few.

Dangerous Drugs & Medical Devices – Our Wyoming mass tort attorneys have spent decades fighting for patients who’ve been harmed by faulty medical devices. Our team of trial lawyers, paralegals, and nurses have years of experience with these cases, which can be incredibly complex and involve litigation against some of the world’s most powerful companies.

Family Law – Our nationally recognized family law division in Wyoming is well versed in representing beneficiaries and fiduciaries, especially if substantial amounts of money are involved. We handle will and trust contests, beneficiary disputes, contested heirship, questions of mental capacity and undue influence, guardianship disputes, contested powers of attorney, creditor claims, and breach of fiduciary duty claims.

Medical Malpractice – Medical malpractice cases are often difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Because the evidence in a medical malpractice case is often tough to understand, legal and medical experts are a must. That’s why our Wyoming office has assembled a team of nursing staff and outside medical experts to review the facts of every case.

Personal Injury – Our personal injury team fights for anyone who’s been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence. Our Wyoming attorneys can investigate your claim, cut through the red tape, and help you secure the compensation you deserve.

We represent clients in trust and estate litigation matters both inside and outside of the courtroom.

Workers’ Compensation – For over four decades, Burg Simpson has worked tirelessly to help injured Wyoming workers obtain fair compensation for injuries suffered on the job. We can help injured workers earn ongoing compensation for lost wages, as well as for past and future economic losses.
