Richard Honaker has mediated and arbitrated hundreds of cases and controversies in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and other states over the past 15 years.  As a practicing attorney in Wyoming for more than 40 years, he has tried many civil and criminal cases, and was named a charter member of Wyoming's chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.  He is an ABOTA national board member, and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.  


Mr. Honaker mediates personal injury and wrongful death cases, products liability cases, medical malpractice cases, construction cases, commercial cases, and many other types of matters that are the subject of civil litigation.  He also has served as an arbitrator and as a hearing officer.

Because Mr. Honaker's practice was statewide within Wyoming, he is familiar with the judges, jury pools, communities, and verdict and settlement histories within the state.  He is also admitted to practice in Utah,  in the federal courts of Colorado and North Dakota,  in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and in the United States Supreme Court.

Mr. Honaker is a past president of the Wyoming State Bar and the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association.  He has served on the Board of Professional Responsibility in Wyoming, and occasionally consults as an expert on attorney discipline cases and legal malpractice cases.  He recentlt completed a four-year term on Wyoming's Judicial Nominating Commission.
