Tom Fleener is the founding partner of the criminal defense firm of Fleener Law, PC. Tom’s practice includes state and federal Criminal Defense in Wyoming, Colorado, and across the Country.

Tom has defended clients accused of nearly every crime possible, with a particular emphasis on complex state and federal drug conspiracies, white collar defense, and computer crimes.
Tom began his legal career defending U.S. service members accused of committing crimes. By the time he left active duty he had compiled an unprecedented trial record by achieving dozens of acquittals in some of the military’s most complex and high-profile cases.

After leaving active duty, Tom continued where he’d started – defending the innocent – this time in Cheyenne, Wyoming. In 2005, his reputation as an aggressive, top-notch federal defense attorney combined with his extraordinary record as an Army JAG led Tom to Guantanamo Bay where he was asked to defend alleged terrorist suspects scheduled to be tried by special military tribunals. Armed with a Top Secret security clearance, Tom vigorously defended an alleged al Qaeda propagandist. His work led to him being profiled in the August 2007 edition of GQ magazine in a story titled, “The Defense Will Not Rest.”

Since returning to Wyoming, Tom has honed his practice and continued to provide outstanding results for his clients. In addition to his criminal practice, Tom is an adjunct professor at the University of Wyoming College of Law where he teaches trial advocacy and clinical skills.
