Elisa Massoth’s reputation as one of the top criminal defense lawyers in Idaho has been earned defending high profile and high stakes crimes. She is qualified to defend clients charged with the death penalty as co- chair counsel in state court. Ms. Massoth is known for being a powerful advocate for clients charged with serious federal crimes, state felonies and misdemeanors.

Ms. Massoth represented two clients to exoneration after wrongful convictions. She has been recognized for her tireless defense in the courtroom and in advocating for legislative changes. She is Idaho’s Criminal Justice Panel Representative, former President of the Idaho Association Criminal Defense Lawyers and currently serves on its Board of Directors. She is a member of IACDL’s legislative committee, believing strongly that improving Idaho’s criminal laws benefits the masses.

A graduate of the College of Southern Idaho, Boise State University and the University of Idaho, she earned her juris doctorate in 1997. Ms. Massoth initially clerked for Idaho Supreme Court Justice Joel Horton, followed by employment with one of Idaho’s biggest law firms, Moffatt, Thomas, Barrett, Rock & Fields. At Moffatt Thomas, she focused primarily on business and real-estate practice. While at the City of Boise, she spent five years prosecuting, climbed the employment ranks to become a Senior Staff Attorney
managing a large team, and became one of its most successful trial attorneys.

In addition to criminal defense, Ms. Massoth is diverse in her legal practice. She advises several local government boards, works in the civil law areas of evictions, real estate transactions, business entity formation and estate planning. During her career she has been lucky enough to have the privilege of founding the firms of Ketlinksi, Massoth, Rebholtz, and Soper, PLLC and Massoth and Burrows. These practices resulted in lasting and memorable relationships with great attorneys.
