Mr. Hunter is a third generation Wyomingite. He graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.S. in physics in 1980 and with a Juris Doctorate from the College of Law in 1983. He practiced with a bankruptcy firm in Cheyenne for two years before returning to Casper to set up his own practice.

He has served as a faculty member of the National Business Institute, presenting seminars for attorneys and business professionals on bankruptcy law, collections, and related commercial issues. He wrote and produced "Letters of the Law", a weekly radio program providing the public updates on current legal issues. For two years prior to joining The Law Offices of David A.
