Our Origins

Hawley Troxell traces its roots to one of Idaho’s greatest legal minds and most unique individuals: James H. Hawley. From founding a successful private practice to serving as the state’s ninth governor, Hawley led a life of determination, exploration, and leadership — characteristics that our firm proudly carries to this day.

The Modern Firm

The present partnership of Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley was formed on January 1, 1964 when the grandsons of James Hawley — Jess Hawley Jr. and Jack Hawley — joined forces with Robert Troxell and Paul Ennis. The Hawleys combined their litigation practice with Bob Troxell’s business expertise and Paul Ennis’ experience in business and litigation.
