In Wyoming, workers compensation is a no-fault government run program designed to provide medical and financial assistance to injured workers. Suffering a work-related injury is hard on individuals and families. Workers’ compensation benefits are not a true substitute for working as they cover only a percentage of lost wages. Being denied workers comp benefits can result in prolonged infirmity or financial ruin.

Attorneys Erin E. Mercer and Kenneth DeCock founded Plains Law Offices, LLP in 2001 and have been representing clients throughout the State of Wyoming for over 17 years. Erin and Kenneth work closely together, utilizing their skills and experience to ensure you receive all the benefits that you are entitled to.

Erin Mercer graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law in 2001. She has served in the Wyoming legislature and has extensive experience in the legal and medical fields.

Kenneth has been practicing law since 2001. Kenneth is the recipient of the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys “Top 10 Attorney” award for the State of Wyoming, and The National Trial Lawyers “Top 100 Criminal Trial Lawyer” award for 2015. In 2017, Kenneth was recognized by the American Institute of Legal Counsel as one of the 10 Best Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Wyoming. In 2017, Kenneth was honored as a Lawyer of Distinction and recognized for his lifetime achievements as an attorney.

If you have been denied benefits, or if you have questions that your caseworker cannot answer to your satisfaction, you should consult with a workers’ compensation attorney at Plains Law Offices, LLP.
