Mike Felton graduated from the University of Idaho law school with a Juris Doctorate in law in 1990. In the summer of 1988 while attending law school Mike was a U.S. Congressional Tax and Legal Intern for the Idaho Delegation. During this period of time he drafted a major amendment to the 1986 U.S. Tax Code and became familiar with the inner workings of the U.S. Congress.
After graduation he clerked for the Honorable John Bengtson in Moscow, Idaho for two years. After clerking he worked for Saetrum and Day in Boise, Idaho where he specialized in insurance defense.
In 1993 Mike returned to his home town of Buhl and began practicing law with his father. In 2005, Mike expanded the firm to include an office in Twin Falls, Idaho which is now his primary office. During the period 2009 – 2011 Mr. Felton was the Chairman of the Major Gifts Committee for the St. Luke’s Foundation.
