Givens Pursley LLP

About Givens Pursley LLP

Givens Pursley was founded in 1977 by attorneys Ray Givens, Chuck McDevitt, Ken Pursley and Jay Webb. These four young lawyers came together and formed Givens Pursley on two founding principles. The first founding principle held that attorneys should be equally dedicated to their communities as they are to practicing law. The second was that clients should be served by attorneys with experience relevant to their needs. Over the 40 years since its inception, Givens Pursley has upheld these principles by employing more than 100 of Idaho's brightest legal minds with records of public service, extensive experience in their practices, and a desire to better serve clients and the community. Now, occupying a historic building across the park from the Capitol, Givens Pursley is one of the largest and most diverse law firms founded and headquartered in Idaho.

We commit to full understanding and integration into any endeavor we undertake, becoming an extension of our client's business or throwing ourselves full bore into a community cause. We know that wisdom only comes through hard work and that trust follows from action not simply words. We know that creating value demands offering and delivering inspired, efficient and certain real world solutions to an ever more complex and abstract legal environment.
