Gillette has a population of around 32,000 people, making it one of Wyoming’s major cities. The fact that its prevailing industry is energy is reflected in its apt nickname, the “Energy Capital of the Nation.” Many of the people who live in Gillette are employed or somehow affiliated with mining and drilling, but there’s also an excellent core of small businesses that bring life and local flavor to this prairie town. Additionally, Gillette is about an hour away from the famed Devil’s Tower, which provides locals with an amazing natural recreation area.
Gillette and its people face a unique blend of opportunities and challenges. Though the energy industry can be very lucrative, the value of its goods is controlled by a global market outside of the state’s control, meaning that booms and busts affect the city far more than average. Another part of Gillette’s unique culture is the large changes in population it has seen over the years. Some of the cultural contributions that that fluctuation makes are for the better, and some are for the worse. When you’re searching for legal assistance, it’s important to work with someone who understands Wyoming culture and the needs of the people here.
