The firm is proud of its professional and public role throughout Idaho, and is committed to fostering integrity and excellence in the profession. It strives to create a collegial environment in which its members can develop and flourish as practicing lawyers, leaders in the profession and their community, and personally as individuals. Participation in civic, cultural and public affairs is encouraged, as are opportunities for public service and pro bono work.
The firm’s main office is located in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Situated on the banks of the upper Snake River, Idaho Falls is the fast growing hub of commerce and development in Eastern Idaho. It is a regional center for healthcare, shopping, tourism, and entertainment, and home base for the Idaho National Laboratory, located on the high desert west of town. As of the 2000 census, the population was just over 50,000 for Idaho Falls proper, with nearly 120,000 in the surrounding “metro area.”
ABOUT EASTERN IDAHO
Idaho Falls is often listed in top ten rankings of American small cities in terms of job prospects, quality of life and cost of living. It offers many features of big city living, such as its own symphony, opera, chamber orchestra, community drama, performing arts groups, and museums, while still maintaining a friendly, small town feel. The Idaho Falls Greenbelt along the Snake River also hosts many community events each year, including outdoor concerts, art fairs, a farmers market and the annual “Duck Race.” Salt Lake is 200 miles south and Boise is 250 miles to the west.
Sitting at an elevation of 4,700 feet, the city is immediately surrounded by irrigated farm land, home to Idaho’s famous potatoes. The climate is relatively dry, with warm summers and cold winters. For outdoor recreation enthusiasts, Idaho Falls is hard to beat. The Tetons and Jackson Hole are 90 miles to the east, Yellowstone is 110 miles to the northeast, Sun Valley and the Sawtooth range are 120 miles to the west and the Central Idaho Wilderness is 150 miles to the northwest. As a result, world class hiking, climbing, skiing, camping, fishing, hunting and river running opportunities abound just a short distance away in every direction.
