Corey R. McCool, Attorney at Law

After graduating from the University of Wyoming College of Law, I served as Law Clerk for the Honorable James N. Wolfe in Sheridan, Wyoming. Judge Wolfe was a great mentor to me, and I treasure the lessons I learned not only in the law, but in horseback riding and cattle branding. Upon completion of my Judicial Clerkship, I moved from small-town Wyoming to New
York City where I worked for a large firm. My primary client was Lloyd’s of London. My favorite case involved a ship which sank in 1850 full of California gold. Lloyd’s had paid the insurance claim and tried to claim ownership, but the court awarded the gold to the finder. Finders keepers as they say. While I gained a lot of experience, working for a big New York City firm was not a good fit for me, so I went back to school and became a teacher.

I returned to my home state of Indiana and taught history for 15 years at a Catholic high school. Later, I taught history at an all-girls boarding school. During those years I also coached debate and served as a Scoutmaster. I have so many great memories as a Scoutmaster. The Boy Scouts is a great program, based on values and fulfilling the important mission of getting kids out into nature. I had the privilege of leading groups of boys on over two dozen two-week backpacking trips through the Rocky Mountains. Those were challenging and richly rewarding adventures.

Throughout those years of teaching, I maintained my interest in the law. My wife and I fell in love with Idaho, and we decided to move here and make Idaho our home. I joined the Idaho State Bar and began to practice law in Idaho. In my work with the Idaho Volunteer Lawyer Program, I was shocked at the abuse some elderly people suffered and decided to focus my career as an attorney  advocating for the elderly. People go through many stages of life, but at every stage their values, dreams, and goals deserve respect. My mission as a representative of the vulnerable is to learn a little about the life of my client so that I may fully advocate for their interests. As a son, I have witnessed the challenges my parents faced as they aged. My work as an attorney and helping the elderly as they face similar challenges has been deeply rewarding.

Melissa Allen, Law Clerk

 I am a recent graduate of the University of Idaho College of Law. I am originally from Fairbanks, Alaska, and spent 25 years of my life growing up there. Growing up in Alaska presented a lot of challenges, but also a lot of wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. I moved to Idaho to be closer to family and go to law school and have fallen in love with the state. 

My primary motivation for going to law school was to fight injustices faced by our most vulnerable populations. I worked in Medicare for five years and was surprised at how many people didn’t know their rights and were being taken advantage of. During law school, I was lucky enough to participate in the Family Justice Clinic, ran in conjunction with FACES of Hope in downtown Boise. During my time there, I got to help the most amazing clients through some of the toughest times in their life. This experience solidified that my decision to become a lawyer was the best way for me to help those in need.
