History

While Budd-Falen Law Offices, L.L.C. has been representing landowners for over twenty years, BFLO actually traces its roots back five generations in Wyoming, to the family ranch started by Karen Budd-Falen’s family. Frank Falen is a third generation rancher in the Oregon, Idaho, Nevada corner. This tradition of federal land use and private property ownership continues today as BFLO seeks to protect rural traditions and ways of life, while still preserving natural resources in a manner consistent with multiple and wise use of the land.
