Criminal Defense

In the Kootenai County and all other Idaho counties, all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.  In selecting an attorney to represent you in a criminal case, there is no substitution for extensive trial experience in the attorney you choose to select.

This experience not only enables the attorney to aggressively represent you in trial, but also gives him the ability to negotiate with the prosecutor if plea bargaining is the best choice for a particular client.

James Bendell has worked both as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. He has also served as a  Superior Court Commissioner and Judge Pro Tem. This experience is invaluable in assisting clients to navigate the sometimes perilous waters of the criminal justice system.
