Kelly A. Rudd is an experienced attorney focusing on federal Indian law and civil litigation. Mr. Rudd's experience as a trial attorney in various settings has prepared him to manage the complexities of Indian law. Practicing out of his office in Lander, Wyoming, Mr. Rudd also has licensure to practice in Oregon, and for the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. He is also admitted to the Shoshone and Arapaho Tribal Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th and 10th Circuit and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Mr. Rudd does not limit his clients to these geographic locations as he accepts cases from across the United States.

As a shareholder at Baldwin, Crocker & Rudd, P.C., Mr. Rudd focuses his practice toward resolving a variety of disputes under Indian law, including often-complex business litigation matters, especially those concerning environmental law.
