About Colby

Learn Colby’s areas of practice.


Idaho divorce attorney Colby L. Jones enjoys practicing family law because assisting families in crises gives his legal education meaning and provides him with the personal satisfaction of knowing he has left families in a better position than when they came to him.

“This is especially true of divorcing couples with children,” Mr. Jones. “Divorcing parents will still be co-parents for the rest of their lives, and a well-informed, ethical attorney can use their training to help their clients avoid unresolved conflict and litigation long into the future.”

Mr. Jones believes in a holistic approach to legal practicing. Solving legal problems is his priority, but that doesn’t always address a family’s immediate or future needs.

“I enjoy taking time with a client to understand them and their situation more fully to help create and assess short-term and long-term goals, interests, needs, and those of other family members involved,” he said. “Often, clients find that the current case is not their only legal issue, or that they may want to take a nuanced legal approach to a present conflict to meet other interests in the long run.”

Mr. Jones vows to stand by his client’s side throughout the entire divorce process. He also makes every effort to help them achieve their desired result while balancing financial, temporal, and emotional expenditure.

“Divorce, or any legal proceeding, can be draining, but conflict can also be an opportunity to envision and create a better future for yourself and your children,” he said. “As your attorney, I will deal with the legal process today so that you can focus on that better tomorrow.”

Child custody case - Highly recommend!
Im a father of 2 separated from my childrens mother. I was given a short notice from my ex that she would be moving 10 hours away with my children without my consent, In my search for an attorney I was feeling hopeless after many consultations i was on the verge of giving up in life I felt like I lost my world my little babies that's until my buddy recommended Colby. 4 days before she moved away with my kids I called Colby in a panic after a brief consultation i hired him, he understood the time we had to get her served and he was ON IT. 2 days later he had me set up with a process server and sure enough the day before she moved away with my children she was served! I went from feeling hopeless to confident and happy, throughout the whole case he kept me updated and put things I didn't understand into perspective. In the end we got what we asked for only because his STRATEGIC decision making! It honestly blew my mind how everything played out when at one point things seemed impossible he knew exactly what he was doing I cannot thank him enough! it felt like he actually cared and he did. This whole case and his strategy to lead us to where we are now will be a story I'll tell for the rest of my life!

Dissolution of Marriage
From the very beginning of seeking counsel for a divorce, Colby Lee Jones exercised patience and provided sound legal advice through this arduous event. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Jones as counsel to men seeking sound direction through this life experience.

Client Review
Colby Jones has been represented me for over 8 months. He came in to my case after the trial process. From the onset, he has demonstrated full competency as it has related to my case. He is very professional, as well as personable. I have sincerely appreciated his expertise in my relationship with him, and he has always been available, he's prompt with any and all responses and communications. Any law firm would find him an asset and would benefit from his services. He's astute, articulate, and brings clarity to every aspect of a case. He has my full confidence and I would recommend him to anyone. He's incredibly respectful toward myself as a client and also the court.

Very pleased with the outcome
I hired Colby Lee Jones to represent me for an ongoing child custody modification case I was involved in. I had an attorney prior who I felt was not reliable, hard to reach and didn't even give the appearance that they cared. Thankfully I found Colby at Cordell & Cordell and even though it was pretty late in the game he was able to get my case back on track with a much better outcome than we would have had, had we stayed with our previous attorney. He and his office were knowledgable and professional and I think they did a great job. I would definitely recommend him.
