I consider myself an affordable, hardworking, relatable, empathetic, honest attorney. I will work as hard as I can for each of my clients. I am a Wisconsin Native, but an adopted Idahoan. I grew up in a small farming community and never dreamed that I would find myself as a lawyer. Because of this I consider myself more relatable than other attorneys. I guess my journey towards becoming an attorney began as a teenager. I got into a little bit of trouble with the law, then I straighten up but unfortunately, I still had the reputation for being a trouble maker. That stigma drove me to understand how someone could potentially be wrongfully mistreated by the justice system or even convicted of something they did not do just based on their prior history. Because of this, I decided to get my GED, go to College at BYU-Idaho and eventually, go to law school at the University of Idaho-College of Law. If anyone knows what it's like to work hard it’s me! I literally started from the ground up, first working on a farm, then working my way into a classroom.

My legal experience began the same way. I got my first job at the Canyon County Prosecutors Office out of college. I worked as an intern scanning and digitizing most of the counties large criminal and civil cases. This experience gave me the insight into hundreds of cases and how they were prosecuted (which would help me as a defense attorney). I worked my way from an intern to a legal secretary. Here I learned how to draft legal documents, interact with other attorneys and learn the procedural system of civil and criminal litigation. I got accepted into law school and then worked for Judge Junneal Kerrick as her clerk, which allowed me to meet many judges and know their specific character traits. I gained a valuable reputation there for being professional, honest, and hardworking. I then obtained good enough grades to obtain a limited license and practiced law my final year of law school at Mimura Law as a Public Defender. It was there I learned that I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney. I loved my clients, and my clients loved me. So I decided to hang out my shingle and go out on my own. 

In my personal life, I have a loving and supporting wife. I couldn't be happier in my marriage. We also have three rambuncious boys. They keep us busy and on our toes. We frequently spend a lot of time outdoors, we go camping, hunting, and fishing. However, most of the time my work keeps me pretty busy. 

I consider myself an affordable, determined, reliable, professional, and honest attorney who will work as hard as he can for someone else. I have been there, and I can empathize with my clients. I give them all my personal cell phone number so they can reach me at any time. That includes day or night. I feel I offer the best overall legal criminal services in Caldwell absent the Public Defender’s Office. Please feel free to call me at (208) 230-9983.

GREAT ATTORNEY !!!! KIND AND PROFESSIONAL
My experience with Travis Rice and his secretary, Aly was amazing. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for doing a simple Google search and Mr. Rice being the only office that answered the phone. Then during my experience Mr. Rice and his secretary showed their exceptional compassion and professionalism by going the extra mile throughout my entire case to provide accommodations that were needed, though not required, because I am disabled. Not only was he able to provide such accommodations for our appointments but was able to even assist me with court accommodations, thus showing Mr. Rice's compassion and effort 10 times over. The outcome of my case was as desired. Communication with Mr. Rice about my case was easy and Mr. Rice was eagerly available to explain anything I didn't know and answer any questions I had. I give Mr. Rice's firm and Mr. Rice the best rating possible for providing me with the best legal assistance, and legal counsel possible. Thank you, Mr. Rice!

THE BEST FOR YOUR DEFENSE !!
Travis was engaged in a matter involving s commercial reckless driving charge. Travis was compassionate, considerate, determined, and thorough. He had honesty and truthfulness as his main concern. Highly professional and very dedicated to helping those who feel lost in the legal world. He thinks outside the box and explores all avenues. He got the charges dismissed! He saved the career of a driver who has been on the road for over 50 years. We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help! HE’S TERRIFIC!

Travis went above and beyond for me he was so helpful in preparing for the trial and with his help we already had everything the court was goin to ask for done which was super helpful. We has great communication and was always reassuring to me on the final outcome of the case. He is a great man and lawyer. I will always recommend him to anyone who would ask. Thank you again Travis for all your help, God bless.

Fantastic experience!
Hiring Travis was the best decision I made without a doubt. My case was very complex since it also involved a family law case in a different county. I’ve never seen a lawyer work so hard for a client. You can tell Travis is doing what he does because he really cares. Communication was always there and he always answered all my questions. Ali his receptionist was great with getting back to me on court dates or documents I needed to get submitted. Overall I give them an A++++ Thank you Travis!

Very Few Attorneys Like This One
I called Travis Rice and the man listened ask questions and REALLY CARED. I was a fish out of water since I have never had to deal with an attorney till now. I had 4 months trying to deal with my problem and already dealt with one attorney that I paid and he made things worse I had to let him go. My case was not the type of case Travis handles so he gave me some guidance and took a lot of his time to do that. I am basically new in the area and know no one. I can say from experience dealing with wrong attorneys is costly and a nightmare. There is no nicer, more concerned, responsible, honest attorney then Travis Rice and if he would have been able to take my case things would have turned out different for me. If your case is the type Travis takes do not think twice about hiring him. Thank You Travis

The greatest lawyer I've had
Travis Rice is hands down the best lawyer I have ever had, and I have had many. He took his time to make sure I understood all that legal jargon, and the best part, he has morals and values. He believes in the law and does his best to make sure that law is followed by the prosecutor and the judge he's not just out there trying to make a buck, he actually cares. I highly recommend Travis Rice for whatever legal need you have. He is fair with his prices and he makes himself available when other lawyers put you off. Thank you again Travis Rice. My family is greatful that you took my case as am I.

The right man for the job!
I turned myself in for a case that was older. A difficult one as the judge put it. Mr. Rice was contacted by my fiance and I met with him in jail the next morning. We spoke for a short time and he then contacted my fiance. He said get him out of there. This man is not a criminal. He said details and payment can wait until we figure this out. That was such a relief to us both! Everyone is scrapping for money at this time like we all know. He handled my case and fought for reduction in time. Who wants to go to jail or prison...nobody! 6 months would be better than 2-10 years which was a possibility. Still scary to think about..as of 2:00 p.m. today I am free! 100% DUI case dismissed. I owe the world to this man. I will forever be in his debt! He is the right man for the job! Trust me!

Has a heart and helps wherever possible
I contacted Travis overwhelmed and concerned for some allegations concerning my child. He was able to step in and offer a free consultation and able to hold my child’s hand in a way I couldn’t, advocating for him legally and professionally. He is thorough, knowledgeable and kind. He is there to help people, not to take their money regardless of the outcome. He has truly been an answer to prayers.

Beyond Helpful And Amazing!!
Travis is an amazing attorney! I’m very thankful for everything he did for me and my family! He’s very determined, professional, and kind. My husband got falsely accused of doing something horrible. We hired Travis and he did an amazing job to ensure that he did not get convicted of something he didn’t do. Travis worked hard against all odds, we were hit with some crazy obstacles, but Travis always kept his calm, and in the end we had an amazing outcome! There were times when I wish he communicated more with us. But overall he did a great job! Would definetly recommend him!

Extremely helpful and kind
When I called Travis, I was crying semi-hysterically not knowing what to do and afraid. I had already called a few lawyers prior and they brushed me off. Travis responded in a calm, kind and collected manner, making sure to get all of the pertinent details. By the end of the call he had helped me calm down and reassured me that it would be okay. Travis, then, called me back the next day with all the information I needed and even gave a follow up call afterwards. Great guy! If I ever need an attorney, he's the one I'm calling. It's so hard to find a lawyer with heart and Travis is one of the few. Thanks, again!

The way to go!
Travis gave me the right information when I needed it! Although, he didn't practice that area of law, he was able to help point me in the right direction.
