Choosing Your Attorney

Hiring your lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertising. If possible, talk to people whose opinions you trust, who have had occasion to use an attorney in your area. For criminal cases, law enforcement officers or people who work within the criminal justice system may have particular insight regarding the abilities and reputations of lawyers who practice in your area. Many attorneys will offer a free, or moderately charged, initial consultation. Use it to help you make your decision. Don't be afraid to ask your prospective attorney questions about his or her fees, experience in general, or experience handling cases similar to your's. After all, its a job interview ---- and you're doing the hiring. In short, try to use all resources available to you to make a well informed and thoughtful decision in choosing your attorney.

About us

Harold Moneyhun is a trial lawyer and former prosecutor who cut his teeth as a deputy county attorney and major criminal case prosecutor in Sweetwater County, and Sheridan County, Wyoming. As an assistant in those offices, Mr. Moneyhun successfully prosecuted homicides, sexual assaults, domestic assaults, vehicular homicides, drug and drug conspiracy cases, and white collar crimes. In 1995, he was elected to the office of Sweetwater County Attorney. As head of that office, he emphasized training of his assistant prosecutors, and cooperative interaction with other agencies within the criminal justice system. He instituted regular inter agency meetings and was a founding member of the Sweetwater County Domestic Violence Council. He obtained certification to train law enforcement officers and personally conducted training of officers on "search and seizure", the law governing arrests, and other legal issues related to their duties. He also remained a "hands on" prosecutor and was lead counsel in most of the major criminal case jury trials occurring during his tenure. Those cases included high profile jury trials such as the multiple homicide case featured on "Dateline", "Cold Case Files", and the Investigation Discovery Network.

Along the way, he had the opportunity to work with - and learn from - some of the top forensic experts in the country. They included experts in the fields of blood spatter analysis, DNA, accident and collision reconstruction, ballistics, fingerprints and other trace evidence.

Mr. Moneyhun was re-elected to two additional four year terms as Sweetwater County Attorney. Throughout his years as an assistant prosecutor and head prosecutor, he maintained a 100% conviction rate in felony jury trials. Since 2007, Mr. Moneyhun has operated a private practice in Green River, and Rock Springs, Wyoming. His focus and goal is to provide an aggressive, experienced and personal defense to criminal defendants. He is proud of the fact that some of those most familiar with the criminal justice system have sought his advice and representation when accused of misconduct. His clients have included law enforcement officers, former law enforcement officers, and a judge.

Mr. Moneyhun has lived in Green River, Wyoming for over thirty years. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, back packing, and simply enjoying the vast and beautiful Wyoming outdoors. He also likes to travel, and loves visiting friends and family in Oregon and Louisiana. Having been involved with the operation of the criminal justice system from both, - very different - perspectives, Mr. Moneyhun understands that merely being accused of, or charged with a crime, can have a tremendous impact on a person's life. That is true regardless of the eventual outcome of the case. He is committed to bringing that experience and understanding, and his personal attention to every case. Mr. Moneyhun is a graduate of LSU and the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University
