After working with another attorney for months, I was getting discouraged so I met with Stacy to discuss my uphill chances, as a dad and a defendant, to get primary custody of my infant daughter. Stacy immediately demonstrated her superior legal expertise.
Stacy demonstrated her outstanding ability to formulate a winning legal strategy by focusing on the most important aspects of my case - what a breath of fresh air. She quickly developed an overview and demonstrated her excellent analytical skills by pulling the relevant pieces from the large volume of written material in a matter of days. Stacy read everything! She did not cut corners.
Stacy showed her superb organizational skills by summarizing the evidence in a systematic spreadsheet, a mere glance showed in a clear fashion how the evidence fit together in a convincing manner. My case is considered difficult and complex, the seasoned judge wrote that he had not encountered in one case so many difficult aspects.
Stacy was very prompt in her communication, she works in real-time, she never left me hanging. Stacy demanded transparency and she always performed due diligence, if I could not provide evidence to confirm a claim it was not going to be used. Period. This speaks volumes about Stacy’s integrity.
I am very familiar with Stacy’s tremendous work ethic and her outstanding ability to present the essence of disparate pieces of information in a concise, persuasive manner. Stacy’s motions were clear, compelling and always filed in a timely manner. Before trial, Stacy prepared me for what to expect on the witness stand and how to conduct myself during the cross-examination by the opposing counsel. This speaks volumes for Stacy’s passion for her work.
It was in the courtroom that I saw the same professional side of Stacy, her cross-examination of witnesses was professional and devastatingly effective and without any of the horse and pony show elements used by the opposing counsel. In the weeks leading up to trial we were exchanging dozens of email a day to go over the hundreds of pages of last minute records that we received from the opposing side. To say that Stacy thoroughly prepared my case for trial is not an understatement.
Stacy made her capable and efficient staff available to me for small and big things related to the case.
I admire how personable Stacy is, her calm demeanor is very reassuring. I trust her. My confidence in her legal competence is absolute.

I just walked out on my husband after 26 years of marriage. I was the bread winner and he threatened to take everything I had, including my retirement. I moved to Laramie for a new job, two months prior to this day of exodus. I had no friends close by, no family in the entire state and worse of all … there was sheer terror within my body, because I had no realistic notion of what the legal consequences of my choices were going to be.
I Googled “divorce in Wyoming” and that left me with even more doubt/confusion:
• Had I done the right thing?
• Would I lose everything?
• Would I have to pay him alimony?
The one thing I did know – and I did not know a lot then – I needed legal advice IMMEDIATELY. I needed an attorney. Someone I could trust, confide in and answer all of my questions so I could make an educated decission.
The moment I met Stacy I knew she was the attorney for me. She was not just any attorney: Stacy was an advocate for my mental well being as well as a true professional. She was a crucial individual in guiding me through my divorce. Although, it was a fairly simple case, it felt like hell to me. She was empathetic, yet honest and straightforward when she needed to be.
Stacy encouraged me to take my time making financial decisions. She supported my choices and questioned decisions I might have made --- in haste --- Stacy provided me with clarity I needed to make the ‘best’ decision for me.
Stacy and her entire team are amazing: they are caring, honest and supportive. I felt completely out of control (and lost) when I started this new stage of my life. By the time we went to trial, I felt confident with all of my choices.
Thank you Stacy -- and team. I could not have made it through this without you.

My introduction to Stacy Rostad came after a life altering accident which left my husband with a traumatic brain injury, multiple broken bones and over 1.3 million dollars of medical bills. Within six months we were having to sell our home, land, horses, life-long belongings and I had to quit my teaching job. She was part of a team of lawyers that responded to the needs of our broken family.
My husband’s accident took place in a prominent hotel and resulted in our filing a lawsuit. I first met Stacy during a phone conversation and was quickly drawn to her because of her genuine concern for our family and thorough investigation of the initial facts. Despite the fact we were separated by two-hundred fifty miles I never felt alone or left out of the legal process. Stacy’s constant communication and information kept me informed. Each and every avenue of the legal process was explained to me and if a face-to-face meeting was needed Stacy commuted to my town so I wouldn’t have to leave my husband who needed twenty-four hour care.
Although our circumstances were somewhat dire, Stacy was a positive, professional and uplifting influence as we inched our way through a nearly three year legal process. All timelines were met, research conducted, witnesses interviewed, experts located as well as analysis and verification of medical facts. Development of our case resulted in ongoing changes but Stacy’s competency, experience and dedicated law team guided us to a positive conclusion.
