Mr. Kunz has been a staunch advocate for the protection of Wyoming’s economy and natural resources since founding the law firm with his mentor Stanley K. Hathaway in 1975. Very proud to be a Wyoming attorney, Mr. Kunz takes his duties and responsibilities to the legacy and future of the state and its residents very much to heart.

Before founding the law firm, Mr. Kunz served as an Attorney Advisor to the Office of Hearings and Appeals in the Department of the Interior; Legislative Counsel for U. S. Senator Clifford P. Hansen; and Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Interior, Stanley K. Hathaway.
