Nichole Collier to serve as Seventh Judicial District Circuit Court judge


CASPER, Wyo. — Nichole Collier will soon sit on the Seventh Judicial District Circuit Court bench serving Natrona County following her appointment by Gov. Mark Gordon, the governor’s office announced today.

Collier is filling the vacancy left by Judge H. Steven Brown’s retirement. She will take the bench July 5.

“Ms. Collier’s prior judicial experience and her breadth of legal experience will serve her well as a Circuit Court Judge,” Gordon said.

Collier served as staff attorney for Judge Kerri Johnson of the Seventh Judicial District since 2019. Before this, she worked as an attorney in private practice beginning in 2009. During that time, she served as magistrate judge for the Circuit Court of the Seventh Judicial District, magistrate judge for the City of Mills and as a Municipal Court judge for the City of Casper. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Morningside College and her Juris Doctorate from George Mason University, the governor’s news release states.

“I am honored to be appointed as a Circuit Court Judge for my home, Natrona County,” Collier said. “I cannot imagine following in the footsteps of the Honorable Judge Brown, but I will do my best to serve the community as a member of the judiciary.”
