Jeff Crandall is a business, real estate and estate planning attorney with nearly 30 years of experience in business, real estate, tax, estate planning, and elder law matters.
Jeff Crandall chose to become an attorney because he loves helping people solve problems, and when given the opportunity, he finds even greater satisfaction in helping avoid problems in the first place. He enjoys meeting people, making new friends, and developing long-term relationships with his clients and business associates. Jeff firmly believes that the greatest happiness in life comes from serving others. Jeff is a business and estate planning attorney with over 29 years of experience in business, tax, estate planning, elder law, and business succession planning. He is licensed in Idaho, Washington and California, and has been practicing in the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho area for over 20 years.
Jeff has worked in a wide variety of law office environments, ranging from a large, 150-plus attorney firm in Southern California, to a solo practice in North Idaho, from a medium sized, business and litigation firm to a small, boutique firm specializing in business and estate planning. He enjoys working in a small, specialized firm, where he has the freedom to focus his efforts entirely on the needs of his clients. He believes he has surrounded himself with like-minded, dedicated attorneys and staff, who work as a team to provide exceptional care for our clients.
As an entrepreneur and business owner himself, and as the former general counsel for a publicly-held, NASDAQ-traded company, he is familiar with the challenges facing today’s business owner, giving him a unique perspective and approach to the practice of law. He has also advised hundreds of clients on how to preserve and pass on the cherished legacies they have spent a lifetime creating.
Jeff is active in professional and community organizations, serving on numerous non-profit boards. Jeff, his wife, Julie, and their family are very active in their church, international humanitarian efforts, and local community activities, including community-based compassionate service projects, music, theater and sports. Jeff enjoys accompanying his wife Julie, who is an RN, on medical missions to the remote regions of Guatemala and Honduras, helping out an eye surgical team with taking medical histories, eye exams, translating, running errands and whatever else he can to provide support to the medical professionals. These medical missions have turned into his favorite annual “vacation.” Jeff is also an active outdoor enthusiast who loves skiing, water sports, hunting, fishing, backpacking, golf, cycling and swimming. Above all, he enjoys the time he can spend with his children, their spouses, and his grandchildren.
