Founded in 1964, the mission of the Idaho Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) is to promote the highest professional and ethical standards for the state's civil defense and business attorneys and to serve members through education, recognition, collegiality, and professional development.



IADC is the premier association of Idaho attorneys whose practice is primarily in civil defense, business and commercial law.  Our skilled trial attorneys and general counsel defend and represent their clients in many diverse areas of practice, including malpractice, insurance defense, employment, products liability, commercial and business, workers compensation, construction, motor vehicle and premises liability.

As the leading commercial and defense association in the state of Idaho, IADC members serve in nearly every capacity of the law, from participating on boards and committees effecting the Idaho State Judiciary, Federal Judiciary, and Idaho Code, to being elected to state and regional offices of DRI, bar associations, and many other important positions.  Many of our past members now serve throughout the state of Idaho as both state and federal judges. 

IADC is committed to promoting and enhancing the skills, effectiveness, and professionalism of defense and business attorneys and to improving the civil justice system.

Benefits enjoyed by IADC members include:

  • The annual meeting with networking opportunities, social events, continuing legal education, significant court decisions review, and keynote speakers;
  • Opportunities to meet and develop friendships with other Idaho defense attorneys;
  • Bi-annual newsletter;
  • An opportunity to interface with other legal experts on a variety of issues confronted by trial attorneys;
  • A members-only group email service for quick assistance with legal or procedural inquiries and assistance with all aspects of expert witness development and cross-examination; and
  • Opportunities to associate with highly experienced and knowledgeable attorneys.

IADC is highly regarded because of the quality of its membership.  Please join us if you are a defense, business or commercial attorney committed to excellence and professionalism in the law.  We welcome you to a great organization with practical benefits to enhance and develop your practice.
