Areas of Practice

Insurance bad faith

People pay premiums for insurance to protect them in case they become sick or injured or other kinds of disaster strike. When insurance companies don’t live up to their end of the bargain, we bring them to justice and we get consumers the benefits they bargained for. We have handled and won many of the most important landmark cases that protect the rights of insurance consumers.

Serious Auto Accidents

Driving is one of the most essential and dangerous things that we do. We follow the rules of the road and depend upon other drivers to do the same. Nevertheless, we have all seen the property damage and physical injury that can result from driver negligence. We are skilled and experienced in re-creating the crash, explaining what happened, and making sure that injuries are documented and fully compensated.

consumer rights

We have successfully defended Montanans against abusive banking practices for over 25 years. What started as a small part of our practice, once the financial crisis hit, our firm took the lead and went after large multinational banks for their abusive loan modification practices. Learn more ☞


Filing for bankruptcy is never an easy choice.  But for many Montanans, it can be the right choice.  Whether you have mounting debt from medical bills, a divorce, or other unfortunate circumstances, bankruptcy can provide you a fresh start. Learn more ☞

Product liability

The products we use make our lives better in many ways. We count on them to be designed and manufactured safely, but sometimes defects make them unreasonably dangerous and cause serious physical injury and economic loss. We know how to recognize and prove product defects so that injured consumers can be fully and fairly compensated.

Serious personal injury

Injuries can happen at work, on the road, in the hospital, or at home. A catastrophic injury can be life-changing. It can damage or destroy your livelihood, your health, your emotional well-being, your enjoyment of life and your relationships. Full compensation cannot turn back the clock but in many cases can make life easier for those who have suffered traumatic harm due to the negligence of another. We fight hard and skillfully to get our injured clients full compensation so they can put the pieces of their life back together again.

credit reporting

Maintaining a high credit score means paying bills on time, honoring your financial commitments, and making responsible decisions. Your efforts can be undermined by the mistakes of others when inaccurate information appears on your credit reports. Learn more ☞

employment law

The employment attorneys at our law firm are experienced in advocating for Montana’s workers. We can assist employees in all employment matters, including wrongful discharges, harassment and discrimination, and employer retaliation. Learn more ☞

Medical Negligence

Quality medical care saves lives and restores health. Medical mistakes, however, can result in serious injury or death. Knowing the difference requires expert analysis. We have handled many of these cases successfully and we only bring cases that have clear merit. In those cases, we represent patients to obtain full and fair compensation.

Investment losses

We work hard for a living. Sometimes we are able to put a little away. We want to see those savings grow and we depend upon investment professionals to use good judgment and to treat our funds with care and respect. When brokers and advisers fall below that standard or act dishonestly, life savings can be wiped out. We have the skill and experience to identify violations of the securities laws and to get peoples’ wrongfully taken money back.

Foreclosure Defense and banking

We pride ourselves on helping consumers resolve their debt issues whether it is through bankruptcy or otherwise. But just because you owe a debt does not give a debt collector the right to harass, threaten or otherwise treat you unfairly. Learn more ☞
