Coeur d'Alene Civil Litigation Attorney

Choosing an attorney is one of the most important decisions any person can make.

A professional lawyer who understands a client's needs and how those needs can be met using the legal system can have an enormous effect on the quality of the justice and quantity of the compensation a client receives.

I am James Bendell, and I am that kind of lawyer. I am a graduate of Rutgers Law School and have worked as a prosecutor, defense attorney, judge pro tem and court commissioner. I am also an experienced trial lawyer with more than three decades of trial experience.

For more than 16 years, I represented insurance companies in personal injury litigation, during which time I learned how insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys think about and evaluate cases.

Taken together, these experiences have enabled me to obtain quality results for my clients throughout northern Idaho, in the areas of personal injury, criminal defense, business and real estate litigation, and other matters that require work in the courtroom.

I meticulously research every detail of a case as if it will go to trial, and in doing so, I am more effective in litigation and negotiations. During my career, I have helped improve the lives of hundreds of clients.
