Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, & Employment Law Attorneys in Boise, Idaho

Our experience and service set us apart.

The expression “there’s no substitute for experience” may be commonplace, but that does not make it any less true. When you’re looking for an attorney to represent you in a serious legal matter, you want someone who is extremely familiar with the local laws and statutes, who has worked on a wide variety of cases, and who has a successful track record in and out of trial. At Mauk, Miller, Hawkins PLLC, you get this and more.

Here, excellence is a habit.

Of course, experience becomes much more meaningful when it’s coupled with a dedication to high-quality service. Since the inception of our firm, we have worked to ensure that every service we provide — from document drafting to litigation — is of the highest caliber. After all, our work is a reflection of who we are — hardworking, committed legal professionals.

We know when to get aggressive.

Reaching a successful verdict is never a guarantee, but decades of experience have taught us which tactics tend to work best in various scenarios. Depending on the details of your case, we may pursue a course of action that is simple and straightforward, or we may have to get more creative with our path toward resolution. In either scenario, we stand at the ready to get aggressive if the case calls for it.

Providing Sound Advice & Committed Representation
Cartoon Courthouse "In order to get through to judges and juries, an attorney has to know how to bring a client's story to life. At our firm, we pride ourselves on this ability." -Joe Miller

When you hear the term “trial attorney,” your mind may jump straight to the stereotypical courtroom scene conveyed in movies, complete with a bull-headed attorney making outlandish claims on behalf of his or her client.

At our firm, we define the term a little differently. To us, being good trial attorneys doesn’t mean escalating arguments and pushing for trial at every given opportunity. Rather, it means being ready to tell our client’s story in an effective, compelling way — whether we’re arguing their case in or out of the courtroom.

As someone who has been wronged, you are likely experiencing a mixture of frustration, indignation, and stress. Our job, as your legal representation, is to make those same feelings resonate with those who have a say in the outcome of your case.

The more the judge or jury can connect with your situation, the more likely it is that they will push to give you the results you’re looking for. Fortunately, forming this connection is one of our greatest strengths as experienced trial attorneys.
