The Bendell Law Firm, PLLC — Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

There are many ways to resolve a legal dispute, some more effective than others. An approach that is too aggressive can inflame tempers, extend conflict, and drive up legal costs. An approach that is too passive may result in a quick, but less-than-favorable settlement. An ideal approach involves careful analysis, customized strategy, and powerful advocacy.

The Bendell Law Firm PLLC, based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, understands the importance of effective representation for serious legal disputes. Whether one’s livelihood, reputation, health or legacy is on the line, attorney Jim Bendell has the skill to litigate a dispute to a positive outcome. Licensed in both Idaho and Washington, Jim Bendell represents clients in Kootenai County, Bonner County, Shoshone County, and Benewah County.

With over forty years of legal experience, Jim Bendell serves as an advocate and adviser for individuals, families, and businesses. The Bendell Law Firm represents clients in business disputes, probate and trust litigation, real estate disputes, wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury cases.

Unlike most attorneys, Jim Bendell has judicial experience as well as experience as a litigator, having served as Superior Court Commissioner and Judge Pro Tem in Western Washington. This unique background enables him to analyze the strengths and challenges of each case, advise clients appropriately, and form an effective strategy to resolve the dispute. Being represented by an experienced litigator with a judicial background is an advantage whether a case proceeds to trial or settles. In addition to being a skilled advocate in the courtroom, an attorney with such depth and breadth of experience also knows how to anticipate the arguments that will be made by the opposing side.
