Tayler Tibbitts is a fifth-generation Idahoan. His reasonable, common sense approach to practicing law allows him to build consensus and resolve disputes effectively. He currently focuses his practice primarily on business and real estate transactional matters, but also has substantial litigation experience at the state and federal levels. As a result, he can ably represent his clients in a wide variety of legal matters.
After graduating from Salmon High School in 2004, Tayler volunteered two years as a missionary for his church in Taiwan, where he developed fluency in speaking, reading, and writing Mandarin Chinese. He then graduated summa cum laude with degrees in Accounting, Economics, and Mandarin Chinese from Brigham Young University-Idaho in 2010. While in college he also worked part-time as a contracted insurance examiner for the Nevada, Delaware, and Colorado Departments of Insurance.
Tayler attended the University of Virginia School of Law, graduating in the top of his class in 2013. He was the managing editor of the Virginia Law Review and spent his law school summers clerking for The Honorable B. Lynn Winmill, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court of Idaho, and working as a summer associate for the prestigious Washington D.C. law firm, Williams & Connolly.
Following law school, Tayler clerked for The Honorable N. Randy Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. After this one-year clerkship concluded, Tayler joined the litigation department of Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley in Boise, Idaho, where he worked until the end of 2015. For the ensuing two years, Tayler worked for NexTitle, a title and escrow company, in Boise, Idaho, founding its commercial real estate department and ultimately becoming the manager over all of NexTitle's Idaho operations. This included managing 45 employees and overseeing a multi-million dollar operating budget and P&L.
Because of these rich experiences, when the opportunity came to relocate his family back to his hometown of Salmon, Idaho, Tayler was confident he would be well equipped to provide local, levelheaded legal advice to his clients.
Tayler is licensed to practice law in the state of Idaho and admitted to practice before Idaho state courts, the United States District Court for the State of Idaho, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
When not at work, Tayler enjoys spending time with his wife and four children, tossing around business ideas with family and friends, lifting weights, archery hunting, playing golf, and studying the U.S. Constitution.
