Improving the Public’s Perception of Lawyers

In the Advocate March/April 2016 edition, the Idaho State bar official publication ran an article on “Improving the Public’s Perception of Lawyers”. In this article, by Trudy Hanson Fouser (president of the Idaho State Bar Board of Commissioners), writes about James, Vernon & Weeks attorney, Leander James: “And up north I think of Lee James, Coeur d’Alene, who has long counseled the Idaho Legislature and local government on behalf of children’s issues. He serves on the board of Lutherhaven, a church youth camp, and in the past has served as a CASA attorney, and president and board member of ICARE, an organization that helps to prevent abuse and neglect of children.”

The Mennonite World Review

The Mennonite World Review recently published an article written by Tim Huber titled, “Suit accuses Holdeman Church of not reporting sexual abuse”.  The article discusses a lawsuit filed by James, Vernon & Weeks.  Craig Vernon, who filed the lawsuit, hopes that others who have suffered in silence because of similar abuse understand that help is available.  “Change comes through courageous people who speak out for justice and the protection of children”, adds Vernon.
