Mark Robbins, CP - President


I am a Wyoming native, born and raised in Riverton. Following high school graduation, I attended Casper College for one semester, Central Wyoming College for three semesters, and the University of Wyoming for the remainder of my degree; graduating in December, 1994 with a BA in Elementary Education. During this time period, I was also a member of the Wyoming Army National Guard, completing my enlistment contemporaneously with my graduation from the University, and being honorably discharged as a Sergeant, E-5 in March, 2015. After a brief move to Florida, I returned to Laramie for two years to manage the Library Restaurant and Brewing Company for friends of mine for whom I had worked while in college. I then returned to Florida, moving initially to Tallahassee to open a coffee house, but eventually finding my way to Vero Beach, where I spent the next 12 years, primarily working in restaurant and bar management, making some great lifelong friends, and enjoying many wonderful, memorable experiences that I would have missed, had I remained forever in Wyoming. I also, however, experienced several destructive hurricanes, and longed for the west.

I returned to Wyoming in the fall of 2008, with a desire to find my niche. Fortunately, (thanks to an aunt who taught a similar program in St. Paul, Minnesota,) I came with knowledge of, and an interest in, the Casper College Paralegal program. I was informed that Mary’s program is “the best, hands down,” was encouraged to investigate it, and am so glad that I did.

Upon my return to Casper College after nearly twenty years, I discovered that I had a true interest in the law, became a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a student member of Legal Assistants of Wyoming, and graduated with my certificate in Paralegal Studies in 2012. I then earned my CP in March, 2015.

I am currently employed by Stacy Casper as a paralegal at Casper Law Office, and have been (aside from a two month period) since January, 2012. Stacy exclusively practices Family Law. I have also been employed by Williams, Porter, Day, and Neville, where I worked as a legal assistant to P. Craig Silva, and had the opportunity to add insurance and criminal defense to my resume, and by Injury Law Firm, where I was employed as a paralegal to R. Michael Shickich, and had the opportunity to experience working personal injury cases. During the periods of time when I was employed by WPDN and by Injury Law Firm, I continued to work evenings at Casper Law Office, (aside from the previously mentioned two month period,) and returned to Stacy full time in November, 2015. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such great attorneys, all of whom I consider my friends, and for having been exposed to a number of areas of law in a fairly short amount of time. I have been encouraged by all of the attorneys for whom I have been employed to pursue a law degree, and may well do so.

This is my fifth term serving on the Legal Assistants of Wyoming Board of Directors, having previously served three terms as Treasurer, and then last year as President Elect. I am excited to serve this year as your President, and by the great mix of seasoned and new board members that were elected to serve alongside me. I look forward to our Fall Conference in Gillette, to our Spring Conference and Annual Meeting in Casper, to exposing a new batch of students around the state to our organization, to attracting new regular memberships, and to all of the LAW activities and CLE opportunities that are on our horizon for this year.
