Aggressive Idaho Law Firm Defends Residents Accused of Crimes

Criminal defense attorneys serve the Boise-Nampa metropolitan area

If you are an Idaho resident facing a criminal charge, you may be intimidated or overwhelmed, but prompt, decisive action is always your best chance when it comes to criminal defense. The Boise Law Firm, PLLC, with offices in Boise and Meridian, has been providing smart, effective representation for clients accused of various crimes for decades. From bond hearings to pardons and parole, we work hard to protect our clients’ freedom and reputation.

Mounting a vigorous legal defense against all charges

Violations of the law resulting in penalties of $300 or less are considered infractions. Offenses with a maximum sentence of six months in jail or a $1,000 fine or both are misdemeanors. All crimes drawing greater fines and prison terms are felonies. Our firm has experience resolving criminal charges of all degrees.

Serious crimes, which are generally punishable by time in state prison rather than in a county jail, are felonies. Idaho allows capital punishment for homicide and for first degree kidnapping unless the victim is liberated unharmed. At The Boise Law Firm, PLLC, we provide tough legal defense against felony charges and strongly advocate for the defendant’s legal rights.

Providing knowledgeable counsel for burglary and robbery cases

The state of Idaho defines burglary as entering any property with the intent to commit theft or any felony, and those convicted face one to 10 years in prison. The prosecution doesn’t need to prove a defendant accused of burglary broke in, just that the accused had intended to commit the crime when entering. Our firm has experience protecting the futures of clients wrongly accused of crimes like this.

The crime of robbery is different, as it centers on taking the property of another through force or fear of force. Victims must fear one of these:

  • Injury to their person or property
  • Injury to an immediate family member
  • Injury to the person or property of someone currently in their company

Because robbery involves violence and the threat of violence, it has a more severe possible sentence of five years to life. We can provide the legal counsel you need for serious charges like this.

Advocacy for citizens accused of drug crimes

Idaho’s drug laws are extremely strict. In addition to some of the harshest marijuana laws in the country that make possession of 3 ounces of cannabis a felony, Idaho has tough drug laws in general and a policy of doubling the sentence for each repeat drug offense. However, clients facing drug charges for the first or second time with an otherwise clean record may get assigned to a specialized “drug court,” which focuses on rehabilitation and treatment for dependency. We know the ins and outs of the Idaho court system and can put that knowledge to work for you.

Experienced attorneys in other criminal defense matters

The Boise Law Firm, PLLC also handles sex crimes, drug crimes, theft and financial crimes and domestic violence.
