CHEYENNE – The Wyoming State Bar is pleased to announce that Nila Jeanne Core, an attorney from Laramie, Wyoming, has received a 2023 Pro Bono Award for Legal Services for Indigent Clients. Angie Dorsch, Executive Director of Equal Justice Wyoming, presented the award at last week’s Pro Bono Luncheon which was held in conjunction with the Bar’s Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference in Laramie.

The nomination for the award was also submitted by Dorsch.

Core was recognized for her commitment and dedication to providing answers and pro bono legal advice through the Wyoming Free Legal Answers website. She has helped over 190 clients—95 in the past year alone. Of the thousands of attorneys across the nation who volunteer for the Free Legal Answers platform, Core is among the few recognized by the American Bar Association as a Free Legal Answers Pro Bono Leader.  In the nomination, Dorsch described the tireless efforts of Core to help clients that would otherwise lack access to an attorney.

Core has been practicing law in Wyoming since 2019. She is a graduate of the University of Wyoming College of Law and is licensed to practice both in Wyoming and on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
