Craig Atkinson is an experienced attorney in defending violent crime cases.
Drug laws are harsher in Idaho than in most states. The strongest sentences are for trafficking and sales, but possession can carry serious punishment too.
Sex Offender Lawyer
Sex crimes in Idaho can result in imprisonment and placement on the Sex Crime Registry. These charges can be especially stressful since they threaten the reputation of the wrongfully accused.
Why You Have the Right to Remain Silent
Should you or should you not talk to police? Craig Atkinson addresses your right to remain silent.
In our legal system, the police are not on your side. They are on the prosecutions side, and you are the defendant.
Cause for Incrimination
If you choose not to remain silent, you could incriminate yourself and make things even worse for you.
Rules of Evidence
During prosecution, evidence could be used against you while evidence in your favor is not shown the light of day.
Family Law Attorney
Family law cases can be emotionally overwhelming. You need a passionate and experienced attorney for these trying situations.
Child Custody Lawyer
Custody is determined by the desires of parents and child, among other factors. Grandparents can become de facto custodians.
Divorce can be “fault or “no fault” in Idaho. “No fault” is more common due to its speed and simplicity.
