Joe Hampton is a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Law. He has worked with the Umpqua Valley Public Defender out of Roseburg, Oregon; LegalAid in Eugene, Oregon; and the Multnomah County Drug Court in Portland, Oregon.

Joe was barred in Wyoming in 2016, and has been living and working in Thermopolis ever since. He continues to practice criminal law, while venturing into other areas such as contract drafting, personal injury, and water law.

Joe is a member of the Smoking Waters Art Guild, where he works alongside other guild members to bring artists and art-focused activities to Hot Springs County.

On his odd day off Joe has been known to head off into the mountains; though you are much more likely to find him watching Netflix with his pets.
