To meet this goal, our firm has attorneys whose practices focus in specific areas of law including: bankruptcy, business entities, commercial transactions, elder law, estate and trust planning and administration, family law, health care law, insurance defense, intellectual property rights, labor and employment law, litigation, personal injury, public utilities law, professional malpractice, real property, tax law, water rights, and other areas of the law which are listed on our Practice Areas page.
The Firm was established in 1940 by founding partner, Louis F. Racine, Jr. The firm grew with additional partners and lawyers being added over subsequent years, and later formed a professional corporation.
We utilize current technology to provide legal services for our clients. Additionally, our attorneys conduct legal research from their desktops via LexisNexis online legal service, which provides access to all federal and state laws and court decisions, administrative materials, patents and financial materials. This service enables our attorneys to access the most recent developments in the law.
With lawyers licensed to practice in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, and other states, we can provide full legal services in several states.
How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
Want to check lawyer discipline?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
- Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
- Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
- Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
