Initial (Intake)

If you wish to use our services, you must first schedule an intake appointment by calling (406) 243-6213 or emailing

At your appointment, you will meet with an administrative assistant and explain the facts of your case. Your intake will then go to an attorney who will determine what assistance we can provide.

We will follow-up with you in approximately 1-3 days.

Intake appointments are brief, so please be prepared to summarize your legal problem. Bring any tickets, court documents, and any other paperwork you think may be relevant. You'll also need names of anyone who is involved.

You'll need to know your Student ID Number, Phone Number, Address, your student status (full time or part time), and your expected date of graduation.

Coming to your intake appointment prepared will make the process easier and quicker.
