Alaina Heuring is an attorney licensed to practice law in Idaho, based out of our Boise office. With a focus on healthcare and litigation, Alaina chose a career in law because she wanted a challenging career where she would never stop learning. 


Her passion and talent for writing and research has led Alaina to become a member of the Idaho State Bar Professionalism & Ethics Section subcommittee where she is responsible for drafting and proposing an anti-discrimination rule in the Idaho legal profession. As a member of this subcommittee, Alaina has co-authored extensive briefings to the Idaho Supreme Court in support of the long overdue rule change.


Alaina completed law school ranked first in her class and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Idaho College of Law. Early in her career, Alaina received the Alumni Award for Excellence – both as an undergraduate student and law student – from the University of Idaho. The award is given to students who have displayed exemplary academic achievement and community involvement. 


After law school, Alaina saw herself working at a smaller law practice where she could work alongside great leaders and team members as part of a tight-knit team. She chose Smith + Malek because of the people and the values the firm embodies, which resonate with her own. 


Outside of work, Alaina spends her time reading, shopping, fussing over her cat, Phoebe, and proudly watching her fiance coach state championship boy’s high school basketball.
