    In today's world, people are injured all the time because of someone else's negligent conduct. In order to hold others accountable, an experienced attorney who is ready to go to trial can make all the difference.

  4. Wrongful termination
    We have represented military service members wrongfully terminated, victims of disability, sex, and age discrimination, as well as employees deprived of disability benefits. Employees have rights and protections!

  5. Slip and fall accident
    Statistics indicate the second leading cause of accidental death and injury is from falling. Falls are frequently caused by negligent design, negligent construction, or negligent maintenance.

  6. Construction and development
    Regardless of whether the construction industry is booming...or headed towards a bust...Contractors, developers, or property owners all have individual legal rights. Whether it is a contract dispute or a construction defect issue, we can help!

  7. Medical malpractice
    A death or serious injury that results from a needless and preventable medical error is a devastating tragedy. Medical professionals and health care facilities are held to established patient care standards.

A trial attorney, Grady has trial experience representing clients in Ada County, Twin Falls County, and Elmore County. Grady also successfully argued before the Idaho Supreme Court in November 2019 in Smith v. Glenns Ferry Highway District, which protected whistleblowers' constitutional right to trial by jury.

An Idaho native, Grady graduated from the University of Washington School of Law in the top third of his class.  While in law school, Grady was a Senior Editor for the Washington Journal of Law Technology & Arts,as well as co-Champion of the 2017 Judson Falknor Appellate Advocacy Competition.  Grady gained invaluable judicial experience while interning with the Idaho Supreme Court, the United States District Court for the District of Idaho, and the chambers of Judge Richard C. Tallman for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.  These experiences provided a strong understanding of the court systems in the Pacific Northwest at every institutional level. Prior to law school, Grady graduated magna cum laude from the University of Idaho, with a double major in International Studies and Political Science.  Grady held leadership positions for the Associated Students of the University of Idaho, the Martin Institute of International Studies, and the Sigma Chi Fraternity—both locally and as Undergraduate Representative to the International Executive Committee.

Great Employment Issue Representation
My husband (and I) were referred to Jeff Hepworth for assistance with an employment contract/wrongful termination issue, and we were fortunate to have Grady Hepworth added to our representation team. Both were a pleasure to work with and very responsive. They thoroughly understood the components of the case and provided excellent recommendations on bringing the issue to a positive conclusion. Their knowledge, expertise and approach were right on target, and we appreciated their guidance and great attitude throughout the process. Their office is very professional as well as comfortable, and we highly recommend them both!

Exceptional lawyer
Grady Hepworth is genuinely one of the nicest people, and on top of that a very great lawyer. I can't thank Grady enough for all his hard work and due diligence on my car accident case. I could not imagine having to go through all of this alone, or without the expertise and help from him. He helped take such a stressful and difficult situation and made it as easy for me to bear as possible. I would highly recommend him to not only my friends and family, but to anyone who is looking for an exceptional lawyer who will support and help you through difficult circumstances.

You can't buy happiness, but you CAN hire Grady.
I had a work related issue with a former Employer here in Twin falls. I spoke with Grady over the phone, sent him all documents and evidence pertaining to the case. Drove up to Boise a week later to have a face to face. Could not have asked for a more fair, upfront, blunt, and to the point individual. One well written letter to my former employers attorney, resulting in a check. As far as pursuing more monies by means of a lawsuit, Grady and I looked at the facts, determined the challenges, weighed our options and made an educated decision. Never once did I feel that Grady had anything other than my best interest at heart. Clearly showing that some lawyers have one. Props, and kudos to Hepworth Law Office.

Very pleased with Gray's assistance
I really appreciate the assistance Grady provided in a very stressful employment situation. He has excellent knowledge of the law, is very pleasant, and very responsive. The staff at his firm is also very warm. And he works very efficiently and I was shocked at how inexpensive my final bill is. I highly recommend Grady.

Grady Hepworth Review
Grady worked for me on a rental dispute. Professionally, Grady was prompt, tough and effective. More importantly, his demeanor and actions showed that he genuinely cared about my case, which is a trait that is hard to find in lawyers. One thing I appreciate about Grady is that he is a young lawyer who can approach problems in inventive and new ways, but he also has the finesse of someone who has been practicing for decades. Anybody looking for quality representation in Idaho should consider Grady and the Hepworth Law Offices.
