Biography: Raised in Riverton, Wyoming, John put himself through college and law school by working in the oil fields and uranium mines around Riverton. Over Wyoming’s boom and bust years, John has become increasingly committed to obtaining just compensation for Wyoming’s workers and their families when they suffer workplace injuries and deaths. Indeed, John has devoted much of his career campaigning for worker’s safety and rights in the courthouse and in the state legislature.John is one of the few lawyers in the country who has won several verdicts of $1 million for those people he represents. John’s charisma and drive both in and out of the courtroom ensure that his clients get the very best legal representation and personal attention. John has represented clients whose cases were filed in midwestern, mountain, and southern states, as well as the District of Columbia.John is blessed with a terrific wife, Gretchen, and his three children, Aaron, Tom and Ann. He has six grandchildren who are the loves of his life. When he is not working on a case or in his community, John can be found spending time with his family and, he especially loves riding horseback in the mountains.John views all who work with him at the Vincent Law Office as a family. We are proud to represent working families and people and pride ourselves on the long standing personal relationships we have formed among those working together to represent these fine clients.Born in Fremont, Nebraska and raised in Riverton, WYMontana State University, B.A., 1971Creighton University, J.D., 1974Admitted in Wyoming, Nebraska State and Federal Courts, Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Shoshone & Arapahoe Tribal CourtPhi Alpha DeltaExecutive Director of Montana Coal Council, 1976Member of Riverton City Counsel, 1979 — 1982Member of Wyoming Indian Affairs Council, 1993 — 1995Board of Directors, Wyoming National BankMayor of Riverton, WY, 2003 — 2011Member of the Fremont County Bar Association:Secretary — Treasurer 1979 — 1980President 1980 — 1981Member of the Nebraska State Bar AssociationMember of the American Bar AssociationMember of the Wind River Bar AssociationMember of the American Judicature SocietyMember of Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association:Board of Directors, 1988 — 1994Member of the Wyoming Bar Association:Insurance and Endorsements Committee, 1989 — 1990Civil Patter Jury Instruction Committee, 1990 — 1998Legislative and Law Reform Committee, 2001 & 2002Honored by selection to the “Best Lawyers in America”Honored by selection to the “Mountain Super Lawyers”Honored by receipt of highest peer review rating possible in “Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers”, including AV peer review ratingHonored by selection to be a Faculty member of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College (Also Of Counsel to Vincent and Vincent)
