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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
