Lawyering Redefined

The attorneys at Kalkstein & Dye have years of combined experience litigating a variety of cases in Montana’s state and federal courts. We have represented hundreds of individuals, small businesses, and large corporations, both as plaintiffs and defendants. Our partners – Gary and Travis – are both rated AV-Preeminent by the Martindale-Hubbell Lawyer Ratings system, meaning both have received the highest rating for legal ability and ethics from their peers. Whether you have a claim to bring or are being sued by someone, we take pride in putting together a strong case, giving frank and realistic advice, and working toward the best resolution, whether that be through trial or settlement.

Experience. We have handled many types of cases and have represented clients of all stripes – from individuals to small businesses to the largest insurance companies in the world. Whether at trial or in deposition, in the courtroom or the conference room, we have been there with our clients. This gives us vast experience to draw on when we are building your case. 

Perspective. Many firms represent only plaintiffs or only defendants. We represent both. Chances are good that we have been on the other side of a case like yours. This gives us a unique perspective to know what the other side might do to attack your case. We use this perspective to build your case to withstand the attacks and to give you the advice you need.

Commitment. We stand less on ceremony than other firms. Our office has a casual atmosphere. Suits and ties are not everyday attire for us. But do not let our laid-back manner fool you. We take our clients and their cases seriously. Our commitment is to get our clients the best result possible and we work toward that goal every day.

Practice Areas

There was a time when most lawyers were general practitioners – almost everyone did a little bit of everything and there was very little specialization. Like medicine, the practice of law has changed. More and more lawyers have chosen to limit their practices to specific areas of law. We are among those lawyers.
