With a population of over 30,000 people, Laramie is a respectably-sized town by Wyoming standards. Located on the high plains, the city also has one of the highest elevations of Wyoming’s major populated areas at over 7,200 feet above sea level. Laramie is home to the University of Wyoming as well as several historic places, including the beautiful Ivinson Mansion and the Wyoming Territorial Prison, where notorious outlaws like Butch Cassidy served time. Additionally, Laramie is nestled between two gorgeous mountain ranges – the Snowy Range/Medicine Bow Mountains to the west, and the Happy Jack/Vedauwoo area to the east. Opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, hunting, camping, and fishing abound, and Vedauwoo offers world-class bouldering and rock climbing.
Though the University of Wyoming – which is the state’s only four-year institution – is one of Laramie’s defining characteristics, locals can all agree that there’s much more to the city than just the college that’s headquartered there. The population influx that happens during the fall and spring semesters of each year makes the city pretty lively. On the flip side, during the summer Laramie turns into a quiet, laid-back place to live and work – and the difference makes it look like an entirely different town. Laramie has an active business and downtown scene, as well as an agricultural foundation that makes it an eclectic mix of several factors that blend together to make it what it is.
Ms. Austin has an intricate working knowledge of the legal factors at work among employees and employers. She believes that strong local businesses are not only an important part of the foundation that supports Laramie and its people, but also key in helping it grow. In addition, she also knows how important strong families are in keeping Laramie a wonderful place to live, work, and play. Her expertise in the area of family law can help resolve disputes involving custody and divorce, aid in adoption, and more.
In that same vein, Ms. Austin also practices as a trust lawyer. Creating a trust has repercussions both for you and the people who are named as your beneficiaries, so it’s important to have reliable and competent help when setting yours up. Finally, Ms. Austin also practices real estate law. Whether you’re buying, selling, working with tenants (very common in a college town), or just want to protect your assets, Ms. Austin can provide the legal assistance you need to make sure you and your properties are safe.
