Michael R. McBride

Idaho Falls ID Attorney


Mr. McBride received a BA degree in Political Science from Brigham Young University in 1980.  He graduated from the University of Idaho College of Law in 1982.  He has been licensed to practice law in Idaho since 1983.

His legal career began in Canyon County, (Caldwell) Idaho as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, where he prosecuted criminal cases from 1983 to 1985. He tried over 30 cases for jury trial in that time frame.

He returned to Idaho Falls in 1985 to open a private practice.

He became an ITLA Certified Specialist in Idaho Workers Compensation (less than 20 in the state of Idaho) in 1996 and an ITLA Certified Civil Trial Specialist (less than 8 in the state of Idaho) in 1999.

He is active in the Idaho State Bar Association, is a member of the Idaho Trial Lawyers Association and is a member of the American Association of Justice.

Leadership roles include service as a Regional Director for the Idaho Trial Lawyers Association and as a founding member of the Idaho Workers Compensation Section.  In 2008, he served as the Idaho State Bar Workers Compensation Section Chairman.

His practice consists primarily of personal injury claims, caused by both work and non work accidents.  His trial work has resulted in substantial verdicts for injured victims, including an Idaho Federal District Court verdict in the amount of $3,000,000.00.

“Mr. McBride has argued many cases on appeals to the Idaho Supreme Court, setting important legal precedent in preserving clients right on choice of physicians, prompt and fair settlement practices and collection of workers benefits and attorney fees.”


Mr. McBride was raised in Idaho Falls and graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1974.  He served an LDS Mission from 1975-1977.  He is married to Tanya McBride and has four children and four grandchildren.  His father worked as an FBI Agent in the J. Edgar Hoover era, and after listening to exciting police and gangster stories from his father, he decided on a legal career, part of the reason he wanted to be an Idaho Falls Attorney.

He has been actively involved in church and community service, including coaching youth basketball and baseball, Boy Scout Leader, Varsity Coach and Venture Leader.  He served on the National Ski Patrol for 18 years.  He enjoys all outdoor activities, including hiking, skiing, mountain biking, golfing, weight training and competing in triathlons.


In 2008, McBride, Roberts & Romrell Attorneys, established the Get Government Scholarship for High School Seniors in Idaho Falls.  This includes five high schools.  This scholarship rewards students who become involved in government, law and community service and to advance their college education.

Since 2009, McBride, Roberts & Romrell Attorneys, champion bicycle safety by donating hundreds of bike helmets to children in a Head Smart campaign, in Idaho Falls.

Mr. McBride served as former President of Kids Chance of Idaho, a nonprofit organization formed by the Workers Compensation Section of the Idaho State Bar to provide college scholarships to children whose parents have been catastrophically injured in work related accidents.
