A Kootenai County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney handles prosecution of either felony, misdemeanor or juvenile cases, from charging through trial and sentencing. Our office is highly respected in the community for our aggressive approach to crime, backed by strong law enforcement support that has not been rendered ineffective by legislation. New misdemeanor attorneys are paired with felony mentors for their first year, co-chairing preliminary hearings and felony trials. As their competence grows, they can handle cases independently. Felony mentors also support misdemeanor trials until proficiency is achieved.

OUR LOCATION:  Our office is located Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, just blocks from the stunning Lake Coeur d’Alene, known for its beauty and summer warmth. Our office is nestled in the charming downtown area, perfect for lunchtime walks to parks and shops. Coeur d’Alene is a quick 45-minute drive from Spokane, Washington, a vibrant city with an international airport and large city amenities. The area offers abundant outdoor activities, from hiking and biking trails to lakes, rivers, and national forests perfect for fishing and hunting. For winter enthusiasts, three ski resorts await within a about hour or less north or west of Coeur d’Alene, with two more close to Spokane. Coeur d’Alene attracts residents from all corners of the country for its exceptional lifestyle.
