“You’re a straight shooter, Robert. I appreciate your honesty.”

That is what my clients say to me.

Why wait and worry about what may happen?

Criminal Defense

I represent people accused of misdemeanors, DUIs, and some felony charges. In Idaho, a DUI or DWI charge in can result in a heavy fine, the loss of your driver’s license, significantly higher insurance premiums, and a jail sentence. If you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol “DUI” in Kootenai County or anywhere in North Idaho, it is important that you have competent legal representation from an experienced and aggressive DUI attorney.


“I can help you as you face this very serious criminal charge.”


The sooner that you make the decision to retain my representation, the sooner we can begin putting together a defense and start examining every detail relating to your case. This includes challenging the methods used by the arresting law enforcement officer, as well as contesting the evidence brought forth by the prosecution. If you are ready to get started on your DUI defense, please call my office to schedule your free case evaluation. I stand ready to fight for you and your rights and will do everything in my power to get your DUI charges reduced or dismissed.

Estate Planning

No one likes to think about their mortality, but unfortunately, it’s something none of us will avoid. By taking the time to plan ahead for the inevitable you can help your loved ones avoid or minimize fighting by making your wishes known now. Wills and Trust are not just tools for those near the end of their life with a large estate; if you have children, a business, a home, collectables, small estate, or a large estate, just to name a few, you should be thinking about doing a will or trust.

Parents with young children should absolutely think about doing a will. Have you taken the time to consider what would happen to your children if you and your spouse were on a date night and were killed in a car accident? Who would raise your children as close to the manner and with the same care that you would have? How would your children be provided for?

Estate Planning can also help you prepare for what happens when you are no longer capable of taking care of yourself. Who do you want to take care of your affairs, both financially and making medical decisions for you?

  • Trusts
  • Power of Attorney

Estate Planning will help you prepare for what happens when you are no longer capable of taking care of yourself.

When a loved one passes there are often assets, accounts, bills and personal items that must be paid or disbursed. It’s important that a Personal Representative take responsibility for the estate of the deceased and that a probate is opened before anyone starts taking items. There is a process in the courts for the distribution of the estate. I can help you through this process. You only have three years to start the probate, after which a probate cannot be filed, but if you are a family that has failed to file a probate in three years, don’t despair because there is still a way to disburse assets and I can help with that as well.

  • Probate of Estate

    Real Estate Law

    I represent both tenants and landlords in all aspects of the landlord/tenant relationship including the negotiation and preparation of leases. This includes retail, industrial, and other commercial property transactions, as well as drafting lease language to meet the varied needs of our clients. Landlord/tenant issues can affect individuals who have entered into residential leases, businesses involved in commercial leases, storage facilities, and mobile home parks.


    “The relationship between landlord and tenant is not always free of conflict.”

    Sometimes a tenant consistently does not abide by the rules and regulations set forth by a landlord.  There are also times where a landlord does not faithfully honor their end of the lease or rental agreement. We will work strategically and professionally to find constructive solutions to disputes about residential or commercial leases. Whether arising from a lease agreement or statutory requirements, I offer clear guidance in understanding your rights and obligations relating to the property.  My firm has extensive experience dealing with these often tense disputes. Because the laws that affect landlord/tenant relationships are complex and change on a regular basis, it is important to enlist the services of a qualified attorney to help resolve any disputes surrounding your lease agreements. Lastly, if a tenant fails to make a required rental payment, we can assist the landlord in evicting the tenant and re-taking possession of the premises.

    I can assist you in all areas relating to landlord/tenant relationships, including:

    • Landlord Strategy Session
    • Lease Negotiation
    • Lease Drafting
    • Small Claims Court Assistance
    • Compliance With Statutory Notices
    • Eviction
    • Collections
