About me

Having been in practice for 20 years the times are countless that I'm asked "Aren't you burnt out?"  My answer is always " I love my job!"  I can think of no other profession that allows you to interact with different people on a daily basis and be able to, not only help others, but also keep the competitive fire burning that has always been a part of my make up.

  • Charles Crawford Crafts

    Disregard the issue of misconduct on this site completely. Mr. Cox received a DUI, which has nothing to do with his ability to practice law. He is one of the very best Idaho has to offer. Do not hesitate to hire Mr. Cox.

  • Tyler Stanton Rounds

    I would agree that there should be no concern over this attorney's ability to very effectively represent his client's best interest.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension Stayed
    issued in ID, 2011


    Suspension stayed means the attorney has been disciplined, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.

    Jon’s comment: “This probation with the Idaho State Bar is a consequence of a DUI arrest in 2008. This probation has at no time impacted the ability to practice law. Contact the Idaho State Bar Association with any concerns regarding this matter.”
