Wendy M. Powell was born and raised primarily in Boise, Idaho. She graduated from Boise State University in 1997 with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting and a minor in English. Wendy expanded her personal experiences when she left Idaho in 1999 to reside in Seattle, Washington. From there, she moved to San Francisco, California for work and then again to Boston, Massachusetts to begin law school. Wendy and her baby daughter moved to San Diego, California so Wendy could complete her third year of law school at an affiliate school of her own. Upon graduation from the New England School of Law in 2005, Wendy chose to move back to Idaho where her extended family resides to practice Family Law.
Wendy was admitted to the Idaho State Bar in 2005 and opened her own family law practice firm in November of 2007. Wendy is a member of the Idaho State Bar Association and is a current member of the Family Law Section. In 2018, Wendy will be the Chair for the Family Law Section. Wendy has helped many people with their family law related needs since being admitted to practice law in the great State of Idaho.
Wendy is married with four children. She has a unique perspective in the area of family law as her husband had two children and she also had two children when they joined their families as one. She understands the difficulties with blending families first hand and the conflicts that can arise when co-parenting with the non-custodial parent.
Family is of the utmost importance to Wendy. She feels so fortunate to have all of her extended family and her husband’s extended family living nearby.
