One of Wyoming's and the Region's Preeminent Oil and Gas Lawyers
I have known Drake for nearly 30 years. He has what I consider the hardest combination of legal skills - attention to and understanding of details and a solid understanding and appreciation of the business ramifications of his work and the skills he brings to bear. He had shown repeatedly his tenacity in pursuit of a client's interests and special talents essential to a litigator. Drake is an excellent speaker who can make understandable even the most complex legal principles (a skill so very valuable in court as well) and also an excellent writer able to communicate effectively for his clients' causes. He also "sees around the corners", anticipating the client's needs, sometimes even before the client itself realizes the need. It is also worth noting that, although his forte is in oil and gas, it is not a limitation on his civil litigation skills, which he has applied successfully in many other legal areas. These are all general observations, but he has been successful in advising us in general business matters, including protracted litigation. He has been a welcome legal advisor, something I wish I could say for other lawyers we've had represent us.
