We love it when our clients are happy.

We founded Neubauer, Pelkey, and Goldfinger LLP on a belief that all clients deserve individual attention, prompt responses, and first-class legal services. Based in Laramie, Wyoming we work side by side with clients to deliver effective and personal legal services. We use the best available technology to reduce busywork and increase the time we have to spend with clients.

I am very proud to be one of the very few Wyoming lawyers qualified to serve as lead defense counsel in a death penalty case, and have kept two people off of Wyoming's death row. No lawyer can guarantee a particular result, but I have an excellent acquittal rate at trial and would eagerly put my skills to work for you.

When you or a member of your family are charged with crime, you need a lawyer who knows what he is doing! One cannot simply learn this business in a book or seminar. It takes years of fighting out tough cases against experienced prosecutors to really get the feel for how to achieve results. I have tried over seventy cases before a jury; nine of them murder cases. I have tried many, many, felony drug cases, sex assault cases, DUI's, and all variety of violent and non-violent cases.

No lawyer can guarantee a particular result; if one ever does, run away from that lawyer as quickly as you possibly can! Nonetheless, I am proud to say that I have achieved miraculous results for many clients in very tough cases. I believe I have a responsibility to really go to bat for my clients, not just represent them.
