Modest Means Program

The Modest Means Program (MMP) provides low-cost legal assistance to individuals who do not qualify for free legal services, but cannot afford the expertise of attorneys at the standard rate. Attorneys participating in the program agree to assist Modest Means Program clients for no more than $75 an hour and no more than a $500 retainer (if necessary).

Who is Eligible?
Citizens whose household incomes are between 200% – 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

How Does the Program Work?

  1. Complete the Modest Means Program Client Application and return it to the Wyoming State Bar (see below).
  2. The MMP Program Coordinator will review your application to ensure you meet the income qualifications.
  3. Once approved, the MMP Program Coordinator will find an attorney willing to meet with you for an initial consultation.
  4. After the initial consultation, the attorney will decide whether he/she would like to assist you. If the attorney wishes to assist you, you will enter into an attorney/client relationship. If the attorney does not wish to assist you, you will be referred back to the MMP and another attorney will be found for you.
