My great grandfathers homesteaded in Montana in the late 1800s, one in Winnett and the other near Denton in central Montana. A Montana native, I spent the early years of my legal career working in Philadelphia at a large firm with over 500 lawyers, where I represented Fortune 50 financial organizations and insurance companies in addition to individuals. This type of training and experience in a variety of areas gives me insight and knowledge I bring with me wherever my career takes me.
I returned to Montana in 2014 after 14 years in Philadelphia. Practicing law in Bozeman has provided me an opportunity to pursue a passion – defending civil rights. In addition, I have been a pioneer in the new legal terrain of medical marijuana business law. At Young Law Office PLLC, I help my community by providing honest legal counsel to the good people of Montana.
Ways I can help Bozeman area residents include:
Seeking compensation for personal injury
Whether you have specific questions about a marijuana business regulatory issue or you are wondering whether your civil rights were violated, I am here to help you understand your options.
I'm a lawyer you can trust to be upfront and candid with you each step of the way. I will keep your best interests as the priority, and I will guide you to the outcome you deserve.
