Default Wanted: GREAT attorney for parole / probation

I hear Dennis Sallaz of Sallaz & Gatewood is the best attorney to have represent to P & P. I intend to retain him when the time comes however new evidence has surfaced that could possibly punch holes in the case of my friend. Any other "hot shot" criminal attorneys that can be recommended? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Denny Sallaz is the best! He got my man out last time and I am hiring him again this time. He is a hard guy to get a hold of, but his paralegal is helpful. He charges $3000-$3500 per parole hearing, but he will work with you on the retainer.

If you are thinking about hiring an attorney for parole, I recommend to call Curt McKenzie Law Office and ask for Denise. They truely care about you and work hard for you. Unfortunately we had a horrible experience with Dennis Sallaz and we switched to them. Curt McKenzie is also an Idaho state senator.

Default I agree

I agree Salaz is the best! I wish I hadn't waited 6 months to get him on the case cause he had him out in one month. However he is spendy!

For what happened to us, Sallaz being "spendy!" is understatement.

Dennis J. Sallaz submitted his resignation to practice law in the State of Idaho, in lieu of disbarment, which became effective on March 1, 2017.

He screwed one too many families out of way too much money. He was horrible and ineffective.

Yep, Denny is done:

DENNIS J. SALLAZ
(Resignation in Lieu of Disciplinary Proceedings)


On February 28, 2017, the Idaho Supreme Court entered an Order accepting the resignation in lieu of disciplinary proceedings of Boise attorney Dennis J. Sallaz, effective March 1, 2017. The Idaho Supreme Court’s Order followed a stipulated resolution of a disciplinary proceeding that related to the following conduct.
While serving as counsel for a client, Mr. Sallaz drafted and executed a purchase agreement pursuant to which the client purchased Mr. Sallaz’s interests in an Idaho limited liability company. That company purportedly held certain real estate, title to which was in dispute at the time Mr. Sallaz and his client executed the purchase agreement. Mr. Sallaz did not adequately explain his conflict of interest in the transaction to his client, obtain his client’s written informed consent to the conflict of interest, or advise his client in writing of the desirability of seeking the advice of independent legal counsel on the transaction. Mr. Sallaz admitted that with respect to that business transaction, his conduct violated I.R.P.C. 1.7(a)(2) [Conflict of interest based on the lawyer’s personal interests] and I.R.P.C. 1.8(a) [Conflict of interest in business transaction with client]. Additionally, Mr. Sallaz admitted that he placed personal funds in his trust account, which simultaneously held clients’ funds, in violation of I.R.P.C. 1.15(a) [Failure to hold property of clients or third parties separate from lawyer’s own property].
The Idaho Supreme Court accepted Mr. Sallaz’s resignation in lieu of disciplinary proceedings effective March 1, 2017. By the terms of the Order, Mr. Sallaz may not make application for admission to the Idaho State Bar sooner than five (5) years from the date of his resignation. If he does make such application for admission, he will be required to comply with all bar admission requirements in Section II of the Idaho Bar Commission Rules and will have the burden of overcoming the rebuttable presumption of the unfitness to practice law.
By the terms of the Idaho Supreme Court’s Order, Mr. Sallaz’s name was stricken from the records of the Idaho Supreme Court and his right to practice law before the courts in Idaho was terminated on March 1, 2017.
Inquiries about this matter may be directed to: Bar Counsel, Idaho State Bar, P.O. Box 895, Boise, Idaho 83701, (208) 334-4500.



I've never understood why people bother to hire attorneys to represent them at parole hearings anyway. From everything I've seen, it never made a difference. Your record is going to speak for itself, and 99% of the time the parole board has already made up their mind and decision before you even walk into the hearing room.


So it's just a waste of money.

In your position as an employee of the State of Idaho at the Commission of Pardons and Parole, this post is shocking coming from you......who went to Law School, took the Bar Exam in two different States at least four times and could not pass thus, working where you do. Your post absolutely reflects your character and unprofessionalism and sadly, the thrill you thrive on from other's mishaps. Also, he did not resign in lieu of disbarment, he resigned in lieu of disciplinary action. Your stated post is in fact not accurate and you may want to check your facts before you state same. Going through law school, you should know and understand the term "Libel." Your father would be so disappointed in you, even more so than he was when he passed. Now, instead of posting smut and untruths, get to work and earn those tax payer dollars that provide your income!

I don't know Dennis Sallaz, nor am I advocating for him in any way, but apparently he had some satisfied clients (or sock puppets) in the past, or nobody would have posted here about him. Then again, members with low post counts (Like You), are always suspect when it comes to showing up to drop a negative review and nothing else, IMO. Even if he did screw people over, it sounds like you have an ax to grind.

No doubt, it can be.. But, in some parts of our not-so-little prison & parole world, people have connections, and can make things happen that might not without them. I'm NOT saying that this was the case, but it sounds like at least a few old members really thought highly of this guy. It also sounds like Ms. Fifer, who is currently listed on the Parole Commission staff for the State, may not have been happy with some of the results? Total speculation, but it might explain her previous post. Then again, she might be privy to him actually screwing over families. I couldn't pull it up, and at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if he is no longer able to practice law. Or is that just in Idaho?

Yep.. It's Wednesday night.. Back to mopping!
