A fourth generation Wyomingite, Scott Homar grew up in Casper. He graduated from Natrona County High School in 1984. Scott attended Colorado State University majoring in Zoology with a forensic science concentration and was a four year starter on the varsity baseball team.
After earning his bachelor’s degree, he returned to Wyoming and worked in the Wyoming State Crime Laboratory as a forensic chemist, crime scene investigator/processor and expert witness. This experience piqued his interest in becoming an attorney and, specifically, a prosecuting attorney.
Scott attended the University of Wyoming School of Law where he was elected to a position in Student Government, as well as president of a law fraternity.
Following graduation from the University of Wyoming Law School in 1996, Scott immediately began prosecuting as an Assistant District Attorney in Laramie County, Wyoming where he gained invaluable experience in all facets of prosecution from misdemeanor and juvenile cases to felony jury trials.
In 2001, Scott entered private practice with Meier Law Office, PC, which merged with Hickey & Evans, LLP (formerly Hickey & Mackey) in 2003. He became a partner in the Hickey & Evans, LLP firm where his civil practice included contract law, employment law, school district law, corporate creation and dissolution, criminal defense, construction litigation, personal injury litigation and other areas of law.
Scott was elected to the office of District Attorney for the First Judicial District of Wyoming in November 2006. Following his first four-year term, he was elected to a second term in 2010. During his time as District Attorney, Scott ran an office with a 4.1 million dollar budget and up to 24 personnel including 10 attorneys. He continuously handled nearly a full caseload of high level felony cases and tried countless cases to juries. He was also on several boards and often did public speaking engagements as well as training courses. During his time in office, Scott worked closely with Wyoming legislators, drafting bills and providing legislative testimony on key issues. As such he was instrumental in passing several pieces of prosecution related legislation.
Scott enjoys spending time with his wife, Michelle and six children that range in age from 9 to 17. He loves the way of life offered by Wyoming and enjoys camping, bird hunting and fly-fishing.
