Steve Smith is a native Idahoan, having been born and raised in Coeur d’Alene. After graduating from the University of Idaho, he went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho Law School.
The Administrative District Judge in Steve’s home judicial district then recruited him to become its first law clerk. After serving in that capacity for a year and a half, he was then recruited by the premier law firm in Bonner County for its new law office in Sandpoint.
Since 1978, Steve has continued his law practice in the same building, representing not only individuals from across the country and around the world, but also municipalities, quasi-governmental districts and numerous businesses. He serves as a presenter at continuing legal education seminars, especially on the topics of business law, wills, estates and trusts, and attorney ethics.
Steve, his wife Yulanda, and their children enjoy the natural beauty of North Idaho at their home on Gold Hill just south of Sandpoint.
