Scope of Practice

Patrick M. Hunter handles bankruptcy matters for business and individual debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, creditor committees and bankruptcy trustees. He represents clients in appeals through the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and provides bankruptcy consulting services in Wyoming and California.


Patrick Hunter has over 30 years of experience handling consumer bankruptcies. He has practiced law in Wyoming since 1983, primarily as a sole practitioner. He graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.S. in physics in 1980 and with a Juris Doctorate from the College of Law in 1983. He worked with a bankruptcy firm in Cheyenne for two years before returning to Casper to set up his own practice. Patrick Hunter’s practice historically emphasized consumer bankruptcy but included work in commercial and bankruptcy litigation, domestic relations, and estate and corporate planning. In 2006 he worked for Wyoming Legal Services as the Senior Legal Services Developer for the state of Wyoming.

Current Status

At the present time Patrick Hunter generally limits his private practice to Bankruptcy Law and debt workouts. In late 2008 he affiliated himself with the Law Offices of David A. Tilem, a bankruptcy firm located in Glendale, California. Patrick has recently passed the California Bar and will be sworn in and admitted to practice in California in 2010. The association with the Tilem firm enables Mr. Hunter to provide Wyoming residents with the expertise and staffing of Mr. Tilem’s firm as needed for handling more complex bankruptcies. Occasionally Mr. Hunter will help the Tilem firm with some of their California legal matters. He has served as a faculty member of the National Business Institute, presenting seminars for attorneys and business professionals on bankruptcy law, collections, and related commercial issues. He wrote and produced “Letters of the Law”, a weekly radio program providing the public updates on current legal issues.
