LARAMIE, WYo. — Legal research, advice and investigations can cost a pretty penny, but for military veterans and their families connected to the University of Wyoming – the price is free.

UW Main Building

It’s a new offering through the Veterans Services Center, provided by attorney John Hursh. He’s a veteran and UW grad.

Although he just started offering the help, he says he’s already seeing all kinds of needs.

  “Problems with the law or civil matters, and also some problems with the VA, their service records, or disabilities, that sort of thing.”

Hursh’s expertise includes access to military databases because of his experience as a Marine Corps JAG officer. He also has extensive civil expertise from his years as a trial lawyer in Wyoming, and he’s the past president of the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association. He will meet with veterans and their families by appointment at the university. Just call the University. That number is 307-766-6908.
