About this firm

Founded in 1948, Davis & Cannon, LLP is a general practice law firm, serving clients throughout Wyoming and the Northern Rocky Mountains from its offices in Sheridan, Cheyenne, and Gillette. Henry A. Burgess, a descendant of a pioneer ranching family and the son of the judge from northern Wyoming, started our firm in Sheridan, Wyoming after attending Harvard and the University of Michigan Law School. Our firm began with a strong foundation in natural resources, representing land owners and diverse businesses throughout the state. We particularly value the longstanding personal relationships we develop with our clients in finding solutions to their legal problems. Our law firm emphasizes efficient and practical problem-solving approaches to the legal issues our clients face, and we take pride in being recognized as among the best Wyoming lawyers.

We know Wyoming. The firm's long commitment to maintaining two full-service offices in Sheridan and Cheyenne, 325 miles across Wyoming, and a satellite office in Gillette, illustrates how important we believe it is to provide our clients with effective advice and service anywhere in the state of Wyoming. Our Cheyenne office gives our clients excellent access to state government agencies and political issues that affect their interests. Our Sheridan office is located in north-central Wyoming; the location of perennial mineral development, ranching, water and business issues. Our lawyers enjoy representing Wyoming's people and businesses and regularly practice in all state courts and federal courts and before most state and federal agencies throughout Wyoming.

The attorneys at Davis & Cannon, LLP have made a long-term commitment to live and work in Wyoming. That is why we involve ourselves in our communities, devoting countless hours to volunteer service, making Wyoming a better place to live and raise our families.

Our lawyers deliver quality legal work and sound advice; we have expertise in litigation, appellate practice, business organization, taxation, employment law, real estate, estate planning, probate, natural resources, and environmental law. We strive for excellence and timely service, whether in drafting an estate plan for a local rancher, conducting complex litigation, or in negotiating agreements.

    Ms. Phillips is an outstanding attorney in every possible way. As a prosecuting attorney she was a zealous advocate for justice, with a tremendous work ethic, a sharp legal mind and high ethical standards. She is a formidable litigator. She tried and won hard, important cases that many would never take on. And for those of us with whom she worked, she was an invaluable source of of counsel. We miss her greatly. I could not recommend anyone more highly. Read less

    I have worked with many attorneys over many years on a wide variety of matters, some from very large regional & national firms. Mr. Henderson is one of the most reliable, hard-working, competent, thorough & responsive attorneys with whom I have worked. Although he has worked principally on family law matters for my wife & me, he has also provided valuable business law advice to me & my company. Mr. Henderson is a man of stellar character; I trust him and his work, and highly recommend him. Read less
