Five attorneys in Cheyenne have been ranked as Super Lawyers. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports all five work at Hirst Applegate, LLP. They were awarded the honor based on a rigorous multi-phased selection process that includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations.

A Casper lawyer has also received a prestigious award. K2Radio reports R. Michael Shickich was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association. The award is given to a trial lawyer who over the course of a career, in the opinion of peers, best exemplifies the highest skills and ethical principles of a trial lawyer. It’s only been given 19 times in the 53-year history of the organization.
