Crago Receives Bar’s Community Service Award

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming State Bar is pleased to announce that Barry Crago, an attorney from Kaycee, has received the 2017 Community Service Award. Nick Murdock, Casper attorney, presented the award last week during the Bar’s Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

The nomination for the award was also submitted by Murdock and several members of the Kaycee community.

Crago was recognized for his dedication to the Kaycee community and his accomplishments as a successful mediator with the Johnson County School District.  He was dedicated to performing as a voluntary mediator on a complex yet sensitive issue.

Crago has been practicing law in Wyoming since 2004. He was raised on a ranch in South Dakota and graduated from the University Of Wyoming College Of Law in 2004.  After graduation, Crago interned for Sen. Craig Thomas in Washington, D.C., for a year before returning to Wyoming.  After returning to Wyoming, Crago worked under U.S. District Judge Clarence A. Brimmer in Cheyenne for a year as a clerk.  After working under Brimmer, Crago and his wife Kristen made the decision to move to her parent’s Willow Creek Ranch to help with the ranching operations.  Since then, Crago has matched his love of ranching with his legal expertise to prove rural Wyoming with a mix of qualities.   He currently is the civil deputy county attorney for Johnson County and does general practice in Buffalo.
