Teton County Deputy Attorney given President’s Award

JACKSON, Wyo. – Deputy County and Prosecuting Attorney Brian Hultman was awarded the 2019 President’s Award last week.

The President’s Award is given by the president of the Wyoming Bar Association to honor one attorney in the state each year who exemplifies the high standards of professionalism of Wyoming lawyers.

Weston Graham, an attorney in Sheridan and the President of the Wyoming State Bar Association, bestowed the award at last week’s Wyoming State Bar Association Annual Banquet held at Jackson Lake Lodge. Weston praised Hultman as a role model for all attorneys in Wyoming.

Hultman served as the President of the Wyoming Bar Association in 2010–2011 and implemented a program that brought attorneys into every 5th-grade classroom in Wyoming on Liberty Day to discuss the U.S. Constitution. This tradition is still carried out in all 5th grade classrooms in Teton County. Hultman has been a mentor to many attorneys in Wyoming, especially in the area of criminal law.

Erin Weisman, Teton County and Prosecuting Attorney, called Hultman “a tremendous lawyer and good friend.”

Hultman has served the community for 23 years as a prosecutor in the Teton County and Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. He is well respected by the judges, defense attorneys, and his colleagues in the County Attorney’s Office. He’s an active community member and has served on numerous boards.

“Brian is masterful at striking the right balance in every case,” Weisman said. “He’s firm, yet reasonable, in arriving at a just and fair result. We’re so fortunate to have him, as he brings tremendous positivity and professionalism.”
