Gerry Spence, born, reared and educated in Wyoming, is recognized nationwide for his legacy of powerful courtroom victories.  He graduated cum laude from the University of Wyoming Law School in 1952, and has spent his lifetime representing the poor, the injured, the forgotten and the damned against what he calls “the new slave master,” a combine of mammoth corporations and gargantuan government.

He has tried and won many nationally known cases, including the Karen Silkwood case (a movie was made of the case with Meryl Streep and Cher,); the defense of Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge; the defense of Imelda Marcos; the case against “Penthouse Magazine” for Miss Wyoming; and the murder defenses of Ed Cantrell and Sandy Jones. In 2008 in a politically charged case brought by the Justice Department in Michigan against attorney Geoffrey Fieger, Spence won complete acquittals for his client on a ten-count indictment alleging federal campaign contribution violations, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Spence represented Brandon Mayfield, a modest Oregon attorney, against the United States in which Spence was instrumental in obtaining a federal court to hold the Patriot Act unconstitutional. He has never lost a criminal case either as a prosecutor or a defense attorney. He has not lost a civil case since 1969.He has had more multi-million dollar verdicts without an intervening loss than any lawyer in America.

Spence is the founder of the nationally acclaimed Trial Lawyers College which established a revolutionary method for training lawyers for the people. He believes that what he has learned in a career should be shared with those who will continue to strive for justice on behalf of ordinary citizens. There he and his pro bono staff teach not only trial lawyers for the people but conduct a forum to help lawyers defeat the death penalty.

He is the founder of Lawyers and Advocates for Wyoming, also a pro bono law firm representing the indigent. Spence has received numerous awards including an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Wyoming; in 2008 he received the first Lifetime Achievement Award from the Consumer Attorneys of California (formerly California Trial Lawyers Association.) In 2009 he was inducted into the American Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame, which includes John Adams and Clarence Darrow. He was honored for law and letters by the American Academy of Achievement.  This year the Wyoming State Bar honored Gerry with a 60-year achievement award for his lifetime of service to the people of Wyoming.

Spence is the author of eighteen nationally published books, including:

  • the massive best-seller How to Argue and Win Every Time
  • From Freedom to Slavery
  • O.J.: The Last Word
  • The Making of a Country Lawyer
  • Murder and Madness

Major state to register illegal aliens to vote – automatically
California will take the next step in blurring the lines between citizens and non-citizens beginning April Fool’s Day when the state complies with a court order to begin automatically registering to vote all those who are granted driver’s licenses.The state has long provided driver’s licenses to all who simply claimed, without proof, that they were citizens of in the country legally. There were no checks made or documentation required.

But beginning April 1 every person who gets a California driver’s license will be automatically entitled to vote.

“We are very pleased that Californians will have easier access to voter registration,” said Jeremiah Levine, an attorney with Morrison Foerster who represented the voting-rights groups. “We are especially satisfied that changes will be made before California’s statewide and federal primary elections.”

Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented. Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the “purge” of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place. As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years. So why is this happening? When I was growing up, my father was an officer in the U.S. Navy. And what is going on right now is absolutely crazy – especially during a time of peace. Is there a deliberate attempt to “reshape” the military and remove those that don’t adhere to the proper
