We provide legal representation regarding endangered species, clean water, private property ownership and use, federal lands, local government involvement, local zoning and property rights, energy law, and other areas of law affecting ranchers, farmers, and other landowners in the federal courts of the United States of America and in the various state courts where its attorneys are individually licensed to appear (Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming).

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.
