City of Pocatello Attorney Honored by Idaho State Bar

Rich Diehl Pocatello

An attorney for the City of Pocatello is earning high marks from the Idaho State Bar At the group’s Annual Meeting in Boise, Deputy Attorney Rich Diehl was presented with the organization’s Service Award that recognizes contributions “to the community, to the cause of justice, and for their accomplishments in the legal profession.” Diehl was chosen for his work as a Sixth District Bar officer, being a presenter at Pocatello’s schools during Law Day, volunteering his time to grade bar exams, and as a judge for mock trials at Highland High School. He is also one of a group of local attorneys who provide pro bono legal advice to veterans and their families through the Idaho Law Foundation’s Veterans’ Legal Clinic. Outside the legal field, Diehl also volunteers at the Idaho Foodbank and his church. “Everyone can improve a small part of their community through service,” said Diehl. “There will always be a need for people to donate their time, money, and talents to help others. Each little bit of service creates a ripple for positive change; I’m honored to be recognized and hope to inspire people in the way others in the community have inspired me to serve.” On a day-to-day basis, Diehl is tasked with prosecuting cases in magistrate court, reviewing City contracts, and providing legal advice to the City. Prior to working at the City and during college and law school, he served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve with from 1988 to 1994. During his service, Diehl was stationed in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during the first Gulf War, serving with Delta Company, 2nd Recon Battalion 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force. “I wasn’t surprised when Rich received word that he was receiving this award,” said Dean Tranmer, City Attorney. “As his volunteer efforts demonstrate, he has a willingness to serve in our community and we are proud to have him as a part of our team in the Legal Department.”
