I am a North Idaho native and I love practicing law in North Idaho and Eastern Washington. I firmly believe that being a native gives me an advantage in understanding the area, the people, and the legal needs of those that I serve. My intense work ethic and desire to help others is a great combination for a profession that requires helping people solve their legal problems.
I often tell people that I practice every type of law except criminal defense and bankruptcy; ;which is almost true. Practicing in rural areas like Rathdrum, Priest River, Bonners Ferry, and Newport requires a broad range of legal expertise and skill. However, I try to focus my practice on real estate transactions and litigation, probate and estate work, mediation, and representation of children in high conflict custody and guardianship cases.
However, practicing in a lawfirm with 8 other very talented attorneys that have a broad range of exertise and talent allows me to put my clients in the very best hands for their legal needs. If there is something that I can't handle, one of my partners can.
The variety of legal practice areas and the high level of quality and innovation that Lake City Law Group PLLC provides is what makes it such an awesome firm to be a member of and I am honored to partners with such well respected, experienced attorneys.
