Litigation involves court proceedings as well as administrative hearings and procedures. At MDS, we know Montana’s judicial landscape well, and have tried nonjury and jury cases in several venues throughout Montana. We are also involved in dispute resolution procedures, which have greatly reduced the number of actual trials. We are very familiar with some of Montana’s best mediators.

The key to success is preparation and we pride ourselves on working hard — and yet economically — on behalf of our clients. When you consult with an MDS litigation attorney, you will discuss issues, strategic options and the nuances of judicial procedures. As our client, we will strive to represent and advise you throughout the litigation process.
