Cloud Peak Law Group
Cloud Peak Law Group is a Wyoming law office. CPL has two locations in Sheridan, WY and Gillette, WY. We are proud to serve surrounding areas including Montana, the Dakotas and to have clients across the U.S.A.
The firm has several overlapping areas of focus. These are, in no particular order, estate planning, elder law, revocable trusts, Medicaid planning, domestic trusts, corporate law, incorporation services, registered agent offices and virtual office services such as phone and mail forwarding. Our fundamental premise is that every family deserves to have quality legal advice and professional corporate services. It is our goal to provide them.
This philosophy is driven by Mark Pierce’s experiences as a young man. He was made to watch as his family's business and inheritance was destroyed by unnecessary income and estate taxes. Several decades of hard work were undone by sloppy financial planning. Hence, our belief that while professional advice may seemingly be costly, but it sure costs a lot less than making uninformed decisions regarding your most important matters.

Mark Pierce has honed his skills through decades of being a businessman, certified public accountant (CPA) and attorney. He was awarded his Juris Doctorate 1983 from the University of Colorado in Boulder. His focus was complex estate and tax planning. Prior to law, he practiced as a public accountant for just long enough to realize it was interesting, but ultimately not for him. To this day, Mr. Pierce maintains his professional knowledge and capabilities through attending nationally recognized continuing education conferences. This experience and expertise is what drive's Mark and Cloud Peak Law's passion for the law.
Several times a year Cloud Peak will host seminars where the focus is his “Estate Planning Compass”. This compass describes how to navigate your financial future and prepare for passing on wealth to the next generation. It may take a while to formulate a concise plan, but this is much better than leaving things to chance. Passing without a will, living will, or trust, and leaving matters to the probate court, is often inviting a bad outcome.
