Nicholas M. Crandall
Nick Crandall grew up in Ventura County, California — about halfway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. The oldest of four brothers, he “absolutely lived for playing sports, mostly football, but also plenty of baseball, basketball and surfing.”
Nick attended San Diego State University, where he majored in social sciences. “As a social sciences major, I was free to take a wide range of classes in the social sciences/humanities. It was perfect for me.” While in San Diego, Nick met his girlfriend, Lindsey, who was also an SDSU student.
As luck would have it, Lindsey is a native of Jackson, Wyo., and after spending time in Wyoming, Nick decided he wanted to move here. Lindsey and Nick, both of whose fathers are attorneys, knew they wanted to attend law school. Upon visiting the University of Wyoming and touring the law school, Nick was, “very impressed by the friendly and personal interactions I had with the school’s staff and faculty.” He made the move from southern California to Wyoming, and, as he says, “I haven’t regretted it since.”
While in law school Nick served as vice president of the Wyoming Trial Lawyer’s Association Student Chapter and as vice dean of Delta Theta Phi. He also participated in the Legal Services Clinic during his third year. Throughout, he remained a “die-hard intramural sports participant.”
Nick is an active guy who spends as much time outdoors as possible — mountain biking, snowboarding and fishing. He says, “I consider myself lucky to have such a beautiful and wide-open playground to do the things I love.”
As a lawyer, Nick combines an exacting attention to detail with a kind way of understanding and connecting with people. This unique combination of talents helps Nick excel in working on and solving problems ranging from complex business matters to personal disputes and planning cases.
