Roy A. Jacobson, Jr.: Attorney with The Spence Law Firm, LLC


Roy A. Jacobson, Jr., “Skip,” graduated from the University of Wyoming Law School in 1976. After graduation, Skip practiced law in New Mexico for three years, returning to Wyoming in 1979 to practice in his own private law firm in Evanston and Kemmerer.

In the summer of 1989 he joined The Spence Law Firm and he became a partner in 1991.

In addition to New Mexico and Wyoming, Skip is admitted to practice in Utah. He has been admitted Pro Hac Vice to practice in 13 other states as well. Skip has an “AV” rating in Martindale-Hubbell and is a founding member of a non profit, public interest law firm — Lawyers & Advocates for Wyoming — dedicated to fighting for the disenfranchised citizens, involving important public issues. He has also been active in the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association, and Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College.

Skip is married to Wyoming native and Wyoming Supreme Court Chief Justice, Marilyn S. Kite, who in 2000 was appointed Wyoming’s first female Justice to the Wyoming State Supreme Court and in 2010 appointed as Wyoming’s first female Chief Justice. They have two sons, Aaron and Gus.

“We are not corporate or business lawyers, we are the ‘people’s lawyers’. Over the past many years we have learned how to fight for justice and to help injured people realize that in America the law can still deliver justice against powerful corporations and big government. We get justice for the powerless and injured by trusting juries made up of good and decent men and women who believe in accountability as an essential value in our judicial system.”
