Jerry J. Goicoechea
Jerry Goicoechea was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and graduated from the University of Idaho School of Law in 1976. His law practice has spanned over thirty years and he has focused his practice on Workers’ Compensation Law. In 1977 Mr. Goicoechea founded Goicoechea law Offices, Chtd., which currently has four offices throughout the state of Idaho. He is the managing attorney in the Boise office where approximately ninety percent of his cases are workers’ compensation claims. He has actively practiced workers’ compensation law since 1977, when there were few other attorneys representing injured workers in Idaho. His work in this area helped lay the foundation for others to begin representing injured workers and increased injured workers’ access to the legal system, which was previously ruled by the insurance companies. Jerry is a founding and current member of the Idaho Workers’ Compensation Section of the Idaho State Bar, and has held leadership positions in that organization, including organizing its very first seminar. Additionally, Jerry has been a sustaining member and was previously a board member of the Idaho Trial lawyers Association. Jerry is also a member of the American Association for Justice, and has served as a state delegate for that organization. He has also been a member of the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions.
