About Me

Kenneth practices in criminal and juvenile law. Kenneth was a deputy prosecuting attorney in Gillette, Campbell County, Wyoming for almost two years before opening a private practice with his wife, Erin Mercer. Kenneth and Erin ran Plains Law Offices, LLP until 2011, when Kenneth was elected as county and prosecuting attorney for Johnson County, Wyoming. While working at Plains Law Offices, Kenneth's cases primarily included criminal defense, representing children and parents in juvenile matters and workers' compensation cases. As county and prosecuting attorney for Johnson County, Kenneth worked almost exclusively in criminal and juvenile law.


Kenneth's knowledge of the criminal and juvenile courts is substantial. Kenneth has been lead attorney in over twenty serious felony jury trials for crimes such as murder, sexual abuse, drug trafficking and more. Kenneth has resolved over 200 felony cases and many more misdemeanors.



Kenneth has also been counsel in many juvenile cases and petitions for the termination of parental rights. Kenneth understands what parents need to do to protect their children and be reunited with children that have been removed from the home.




Kenneth also works with children who are accused of committing crimes and their parents. He will explain the law and walk you and your child through the process, always working for the best interests of your child.
