Federal Public Defender for the District of Wyoming’s Casper Office
The Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Districts of Wyoming’s Casper office is a branch of the federal public defender’s office for the districts of Colorado and Wyoming. The office represents individuals accused of a federal crime, but unable to afford counsel. With around two assistant federal public defenders, the office provides trial-related legal representation in federal district court, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court – to persons charged with or convicted of crimes. The office is committed to the eradication of discrimination and unconscious bias in the criminal legal system. The Federal Public Defender’s Office is established under the Criminal Justice Act of 1964. Under the Act, Federal Public Defenders are appointed to represent individuals accused of a federal crime, but unable to afford counsel. The Act was established to guarantee that those who cannot afford to pay a lawyer are represented with the same zeal and the same resources as defendants who have the money to pay a lawyer. They also have offices located in Denver, Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Trial attorneys based out of the Casper office are there for their clients from their first appearance in court to the conclusion of their district court case, working closely with investigators to develop the facts and appellate specialists on their Motions Team to address complex legal questions.
