My family first came to America from Ireland in the late 1800’s. My grandfather was a rancher who owned a ranch north of Casper. My father opened his law office in 1948 here in Casper. My family has now been engaged in the practice of law for over 65 years here in central Wyoming. My father later became the Natrona County District Attorney. He was also very active in Wyoming politics. In 1960 he ran for the United States Senate and appeared in a campaign commercial with then Senator John F. Kennedy.
I am very happily married to Peggy Whitaker. Together, we have raised 3 exceptional children: Sam, Danielle and Catherine. Peggy is a litigation paralegal and is also the office manager for the Whitaker Law Office.
