Our founding partner, Ray Tipp, started this practice from a single homemade desk set on a staircase landing of a downtown Missoula office building. Shortly thereafter, he teamed up with Vernon Hoven. The firm name changed to Tipp & Hoven and was located at 123 West Broadway in downtown Missoula. Vern stayed with the firm until shortly before his death in 1983.
Over the years, several other attorneys have been associated or partnered with the firm. The firm moved to its present location on the South Side of Missoula in 1972. Since that time, Tipp Coburn & Associates PC has gradually grown to its present size of four full-time attorneys.
Decades later, our attorneys still strive to provide the same level of client attention that we have from the very beginning.

"Knowledgeable, respectful, professional." Clients Share Their Opinions of Our Missoula Firm
I'm from the east coast so I really didn't know how the law works in Montana. Mr.Tipp was able to workout a deal with the prosecutor in my case and got a majority of my time suspended. he even picked me up and dropped me off at the airport when I was ready to go back up there to serve my time. Since my charge was just a misdemeanor and with recent changes to Montana law, I may look at using this firm to get my conviction exonerated in a few years.View On Google
I got a traffic ticket in Montana. I decided to have a lawyer service and contacted to Ms. Sarah Lockwood. She listened every detail of my story and then provided all the necessary information, the consequences of the case and her legal advice. She always kept me updated before and after every hearing. Ms. Lockwood is incredibly knowledgeable, respectful, professional and very dedicated attorney. I am truly pleased that we won the case, what she has done and cannot thank enough to her. I would highly recommend her service if one needs an attorney in Montana.View On Google
