DUI Charges

Scene of serious car accident

We are widely known and well-respected in Montana for our aggressive and effective DUI (driving under the influence) defense practice. We aggressively defend you from having your license revoked, paying large fines, increases in insurance premiums and serving jail time. Oftentimes, we can win a case during pre-trial litigation, by filing motions to suppress and motions to dismiss. Types of defenses in a DUI case may include: law enforcement error, faulty equipment, and the field sobriety test.

Drug Crimes

Whether you are charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, attempted homicide, or criminal endangerment, we aggressively represent you and provide strong defenses to the charges.

Property Crimes

Sex Crimes

Being accused of a sexual offense can be damaging to your reputation and your future. This type of crime often involves contradictory details and the negative stigma attached to sex crimes can make it difficult for you to get the due process you deserve. As a result, it is essential to have an experienced defense attorney by your side. We aggressively defend allegations of sexual intercourse without consent (rape), sexual assault, prostitution, indecent exposure, and child pornography.
