Welcome to the Office of the State Public Defender

"Being a public defender means much more than just appearing in Court with a person charged with a crime. It is a state of mind; it is a commitment to the ideal that all individuals deserve to be treated with dignity and due process; it is an opportunity to create change, within the system, within our clients and within ourselves. I am excited about promoting those ideals and am committed to ensuring that the Office of the State Public Defender continues to provide effective assistance of counsel as guaranteed by the United States and Wyoming Constitutions."
