Idaho Falls Criminal Defense Lawyer

Retain Cutler Law Office, P.A. to Fight for You

At Cutler Law Office, P.A., our Idaho Falls criminal defense firm has been defending the rights of people who are facing serious problems for more than 25 years! We know that your life can suddenly be turned upside down because of one run-in with the law.

If you have been arrested in Idaho Falls and the surrounding areas, you can rest assured that our firm is willing to fight on behalf of your rights to safeguard your interests and defend your honorable reputation.

Misdemeanor & Felony DUI Charges

As a former deputy prosecutor, Attorney, John E. Cutler, has handled cases in which individuals have been wrongfully arrested, has seen cases in which individuals' rights have been violated, and has seen drivers plead guilty to charges when a solid defense should have been applied.

As a result, Mr. Cutler has since dedicated his practice to advocating on behalf of individuals who have been arrested for offenses related to driving under the influence (DUI). Our firm is committed to making sure that clients receive the defense that they need and deserve.

In addition to our years of experience, we can also provide superior, well-rounded strategies for your DUI defense based on knowledge gained from a number of professional affiliations:

  • National College of DUI Defense
  • National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers
  • Idaho Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers
  • Trained and certified in Student and Instructor courses for Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (the same training that law enforcement receives to investigate and arrest DUI drivers)

Former Prosecutor Defends Your Name After Serious Allegations

At the Cutler Law Office, P.A., we are passionate about giving you a strong defense that can protect your constitutional rights. We are licensed to practice in state and federal courts throughout Idaho, including the Federal District Court for the District of Idaho, and have experience in both felonies and misdemeanors in both state and federal court.

Attorney John E. Cutler has decades of experience in criminal law and has been able to provide an effective defense on behalf of past clients who have been arrested for assault and battery and domestic violence, drug crimes, theft crimes, and more.

Mr. Cutler is also admitted to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and all the appellate courts in Idaho, meaning he is able to represent you during an appeal if you received an unfavorable decision in a prior case.

While we can be trusted to guide you through the appeal process, we believe the best strategy to avoid needing an appeal is to retain an experienced and knowledgeable Idaho Falls criminal defense lawyer from the outset of your case. The Cutler Law Office, P.A. can be trusted to defend your rights in misdemeanor and felony cases alike.
