Practice areas
  1. Child custody
    30%
    Includes custody determinations when the parents have never been married or modifications after a custody Order is in place. I also work as a Guardian ad litem representing the best interests of children in custody disputes.

  2. Divorce and separation
    30%
    Includes divorces with or without children. Can handle divorces with few assets or those with large marital estates.

  3. Adoption
    10%
    There are many types of adoptions: step-parent adoptions, same-sex parent adoptions, interstate adoptions, etc. In Wyoming adoptions may proceed with or without the biological parent's consent depending on the situation.

  4. Domestic violence
    10%
    It is important to have an attorney who understands the dynamics of domestic violence in divorce and custody cases. I have many years of experience representing victims in family law cases and for civil protection orders.

  5. Guardianship
    10%
    Wyoming has different types of guardianships, some are temporary and others are permanent. I can assist in determining which guardianship is right for your family's situation.

  6. DUI and DWI
    5%
    I handle misdemeanor DUI and possession cases involving marijuana. You may qualify as a first offender under these charges; therefore, representation by an attorney could be very helpful.

  7. Expungement
    5%
    If it has been more than five years since your misdemeanor charge and probation terms ended then you may be eligible to have your record expunged.

I am a native Southerner but have lived in Wyoming for over 20 years. I divide my time between Laramie and Jackson, taking cases throughout Western Wyoming. I like to travel as much as possible, both nearby and far away. When I'm not outside I enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and eating! I am active in a variety of professional and civic organizations, which I feel is necessary to stay connected to my community.

Rennie is the best!
We came to Rennie out of Casper to help us with a custody issue! She listened, she cared and she got everything accomplished that we asked on a very professional level. Anyone needing a good family lawyer, I highly recommend Rennie!

Professional and Passionate
I would highly recommend Rennie Polidora! Over the last two years during our child custody battle, Ms. Polidora was the epitome of professionalism; She made sure our needs and values were always respected. She is always courteous, prepared, and worked diligently for our case. Ms. Polidora was always available to communicate with us. Our case is now closed with a great outcome thanks to her hard work, dedication and passion. If any further issues arise, I know exactly who I’m calling.

Peace of mind
Rennie was great at especially being thorough with “grey” areas of the adoption she did for us. I highly recommend her, she makes sure she knows what can go on and let’s her clients know that. When she meets with us, I don’t feel rushed even though I know how busy she is.

Client-Oriented
Rennie was willing to give me a very in depth consultation at no charge, and offered constructive feedback and presented my options. Rennie gave me some advice, and did not expect an obligation to hire her. Rennie is the first attorney I have spoken with that took the time to review my documents and evaluate my situation. I feel that Rennie's dedication to her career stands out.

Highly Recommend!
Mrs. Polidora and everyone at the firm is amazing to work with! My husband and I hired Mrs. Polidora for his child custody case. She worked extremely hard and was very prepared for any hiccups that occurred along the way. She understands the struggles and nerves her clients face when dealing with custody cases. Mrs. Polidora is very honest with expectations, and upholds integrity for all parties associated with the case. We can not thank her enough for everything she has done for us.

We highly recommend Rennie
We retained Rennie as our attorney for our step-parent adoption case and she did a great job. Ms. Polidora was quick to respond when I had questions and was very prompt with all of our requests and filings. We highly recommend Ms. Polidora as she was strong, attentive, and well spoken in court. Furthermore, her fee was very fair for all of the work that she did for us in our SUCCESSFUL step-parent adoption case. We can't thank her enough for what she has done for us.

Sarah Jacobs-Manwarren
We hired Sarah Jacobs-Manwarren (a partner or associate at this firm, we are not sure which at this time) for a drug felony charge against our son. We have not gotten far into the case. However, to date we are very impressed with her and believe she will provide an excellent defense for our son and she has been very responsive to our input and concerns.

Professional & Supportive
I hired Rennie as my lawyer for my divorce. While she would have moved forward with any results I desired, she gave smart advice to pursue the best results possible. She is familiar with the Wyoming legal systems and did research about other cases happening in the state. Highly recommended.
