The attorneys at Coal Creek Law have extensive experience representing administrative agencies as well as private individuals and businesses in contested cases, permitting and other matters before local and state agencies.  

Our attorneys also represent local governments and educational institutions throughout Wyoming. These clients have similar requirements to those of the businesses served by the firm, but operate under regulations that are often more restrictive than those governing business operations.

  • Ensuring organizational compliance with all relevant statutes

  • In the education law context, compliance with all relevant statutes including Title IX, Title VI, Title VII and issues involving school discipline, sexual harassment, special education, and discrimination 

The administrative law clients at Coal Creek Law include county commissions and educational institutions such as K-12 schools and community colleges. The lawyers act for local governments and educational institutions in one-time matters, long-term special projects, and as appointed counsel on an ongoing basis. The attorneys have been handling government law and administrative law matters throughout Wyoming for many years. This has given them a thorough understanding of the issues and concerns of local governments, educational institutions, and regulatory agencies. 

As counsel for private individuals and businesses, the firm’s attorneys provide representation in a broad range of administrative matters including complex trial-type contested cases such as Industrial Siting Council permit proceedings and rate and certificate proceedings before the Public Service Commission of Wyoming.  The firm also represents private individuals and businesses in formal rulemaking proceedings and in less formal agency matters of many kinds.
