The Guidance & Knowledge You Need

Fighting On Your Side

Christopher Young

Local Legal Guidance You Can Trust

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.

"I am dedicated to standing up for your rights and representing your best interests."
