About Western Justice Law

Western Justice Associates, PLLC, is a law firm based in Bozeman, Montana. Our part of the west is known for its clean environment, wide open spaces and neighborly respect for others. Western Justice’s work is guided by these values. We represent individuals, families and communities harmed by the negligence or deliberate misconduct of others. We handle cases involving physical injury or death, insurance claims, consumer protection issues, private property damage and environmental protection.

Our Role

The legal system and insurance industry can be dauntingly complex. Insurance companies and corporate defendants fight tooth and nail to protect their interests. Such companies often have the advantage of extensive experience and resources. Western Justice uses its experience and resources to help put our clients on equal footing with insurance companies and powerful defendants. The civil justice system is meant to serve the people. Western Justice is committed to ensuring that this system actually does work to allow fair and efficient resolution of our clients’ legal issues.

Our Record

Western Justice litigates successfully against the largest law firms in the country. Our trial attorneys have a strong record of success and have negotiated some of the largest settlements in the region, (see for example the $25 million settlement in Ankney v. PPLM). We also have a history of appellate success before both the Montana Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals.

Our Approach

At Western Justice we take every case seriously and we limit the cases we accept in order to ensure that every detail is attended to. We bring the same standards of dedication, innovation and professionalism to each of our cases whether it be a regionally important consumer protection case or a routine insurance claim. We are trusted by our clients for our integrity and dogged dedication. We are respected by our opponents for our smart, effective legal work.

Our Fees

Western Justice handles most cases on a contingent fee basis. This means that the attorney fee is based on a percentage of the client’s recovery and there is no fee unless there is a recovery.

Free Consultations

If you are unsure whether you may need legal assistance, one of our lawyers will talk with you for free to help you understand your rights. If we cannot help you, we will use our knowledge of the region’s legal community to help you find capable counsel who can assist you with the specific matters at issue in your case.

Why Hire a Trial Law Firm

Insurance companies and powerful defendants will often treat you fairly only if they know you have a lawyer who is able to hold them accountable in court. Hiring a trial law firm does not mean your case will go to trial. On the contrary, the best way to ensure that you are offered a fair settlement is to hire a lawyer that insurance companies and defendants know will take your case to trial if they do not treat you fairly.
