The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Wyoming is committed to combating unconstitutional conditions and practices and is able to provide legal representation in a limited number of civil liberties cases.

The ACLU of Wyoming can provide general prisoner assistance primarily by screening and referral. The ACLU generally files cases that affect the civil liberties of large numbers of people, rather than those involving a dispute between two parties. The basic questions they ask when reviewing a potential case are: 1) Is this a significant civil liberties issue? 2) What effect will this case have on people other than the parties involved? 3) Does the ACLU have the necessary resources to take this case?

If you believe your case may be the kind of case the ACLU accepts, fill out the online complaint form and mail it to the address above or write directly to the ACLU. Please be sure to include your full name, address, telephone number, email, and a full description of your complaint. There are many cases and problems of unfairness and injustice which the ACLU is simply unable to handle. The ACLU receives many requests for assistance each month; therefore, it cannot accept all of the complaints that fall within its guidelines.

The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is a program of the Wyoming State Bar, which provides callers, or visitors to this website, with the names of attorneys who they can hire to help with a particular kind of legal matter. The online service is available 24/7. LRS is not a reduced fee or pro bono (free) service.

When a caller contacts the LRS, an LRS specialist will ask the caller a series of questions. The caller will be given the name and telephone number of an attorney who handles cases in the area of law that addresses the problem. If the attorney is not able to assist the referred caller with the legal problem, the caller may contact LRS again for another referral. Callers may receive up to three referrals per legal matter per call. There is no charge for receiving a referral from LRS. While some attorneys do not charge for the initial consultations, others do.

The Pro Bono and Volunteer Lawyers Program (PBVLP) will try to match a client in need with an attorney who is willing to help at no cost. The volunteer lawyer will offer advice, legal services, and representation to people who qualify. Qualification for the program is based on need and the availability of a volunteer attorney to help you. The lawyers in this program are only able to help with limited civil matters. This program is not able to assist with criminal charges.

Contact the Wyoming State Bar PBVLP Coordinator to see if there are attorneys available for your situation. If there are, an application will be sent to you (or you may complete it online). Please do not submit an application until you have contacted the program coordinator.

After your completed application is received, you will be contacted by the program coordinator. If you qualify for the program, a volunteer attorney will be assigned to you. This program is small, and attorney participation may be limited. PBVLP cannot guarantee you will be matched with an attorney even if you qualify for the program. The PBVLP does not represent clients; it only facilitates matching potential clients with volunteer lawyers. Because this is a volunteer program, it may take several months before an attorney is available to help you.
