ABOUT Kalkstein & Dye, P.C.

The attorneys at Kalkstein & Dye have more than 50 years' combined experience litigating and trying cases in Montana's state and federal courts. We're an AV-rated firm, which means that we've been peer-reviewed at the highest possible level for legal ability and ethics. We're very good at what we do, and very happy doing it.

Why we're good at what we do. We know what we're doing. We've represented all shapes, sizes, and sides (and still do) — from individuals to small businesses to the largest insurance companies in the world. Because we've handled these cases for both sides, plaintiffs and defendants, we know how to build your case up, and how a good defense attorney will try to knock it down. It is with that perspective that we assess, plan, and litigate our clients' cases. Very few firms can say the same.

Why we're happy doing it. What's not to like? Trial is great fun (between Gary, C.J., and Travis, we've tried more than 50 jury trials). Depositions are the next best thing, and they're great fun, too. Legal writing is fun (no, really). And the creative problem solving that goes into developing a plan and building cases from the ground up is very rewarding. We've found a balance of practice that means we don't have to go to work, we get to go to work.

A little more about us and bigskytrial.com. We stand less on ceremony than most firms — suits to work and courthouse glamour-shots don't make lawyers smarter or better — but take our client and case responsibilities very seriously. The lawyer you choose is, above all else, a quality of life decision. We promptly return calls and e-mails, give informed answers to client questions, and provide frank and realistic advice. We like being lawyers, litigating cases, and playing it straight. So if you're in the hunt for minions, lackeys, toadies, flunkeys, or any other manner of lawyer who might do anything to get you yours, this crew's not for you.
