Assault Attorney In Casper

Sometimes a minor incident is blown out of proportion. Sometimes police arrest the wrong person. No matter what really happened, any allegation of assault or domestic violence is serious. The possible consequences range from jail and a criminal record to losing your gun rights or being cut off from your children.

The Law Office of Hampton Young, PC, can intervene to protect your rights and make sure that your side of the story is told. Our legal team will fight unfounded charges and make every effort to prevent the accusations from ruining your life.

Assault And Battery · Family Violence · Orders Of Protection

We practice in the criminal courts of Natrona County and surrounding counties of eastern Wyoming. Our experienced attorney handles all handle felony, misdemeanor and juvenile allegations, including crimes of violence:

  • Simple assault and battery
  • Domestic abuse
  • Stalking or protective order violations
  • Aggravated assault and battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Armed robbery
  • Murder or manslaughter

When police are called and there is evidence of an altercation, they will typically make an arrest and "ask questions later." A judge may issue a temporary protective order in cases involving assault or battery against a spouse, ex-spouse, family member or dating partner.

It is critical to contact an attorney immediately. By intervening early, we can sometimes get baseless charges dismissed or convince the prosecutor to charge the case more appropriately. In domestic violence cases, there will be a hearing within 72 hours on whether to continue the order of protection. The order, which may last up to one year, will prevent (and punish) any contact with the victim and may limit your ability to see your own children.

Experienced Defense For Assault Charges

Casper criminal defense lawyer Hampton M. Young Jr. brings 35 years of experience to your case. As a former deputy attorney general, he knows how to challenge the government's case in court — and how to engage the district attorney in productive negotiations.

Mr. Young will explore all defenses and mitigating factors, such as self-defense or provocation. He can cast doubt on accusations that stem from a divorce or custody dispute or other "history" between you and the alleged victim. We can sometimes avoid an assault conviction by arranging for counseling or anger management classes instead. If the charges stick and there is no acceptable plea deal, we are prepared to defend you at trial.
