Representation of Government Entities

At a time when every public entity is operating with constrained budgets, we pride ourselves on being efficient and effective. We have decades of combined experience representing governmental entities on a wide variety of legal issues. We have successfully handled multiple tort claims, constitutional questions, civil rights litigation, discrimination, employment, administrative procedures, board representation, advice to state and local governments, and much more. Our knowledge of local, state, and federal government policies and procedures is second to none.

Government law is fascinating, varied, and has the added benefit of knowing you represent the interests of the citizens of Montana. Whether it's a run-of-the mill liability claim or a brand-new legal question that's never been addressed, we dive into the subject matter to represent your entity ethically, efficiently, and professionally.

We know public entities can have different policy concerns than private actors when it comes to approaching legal issues. Your governmental entity's legal decisions today can have long-term policy implications for how you carry out services to your constituents in the future. Our goal is to provide you legal advice, representation, and options that coincide with the policy approaches and goals of your organization.


what people are saying

Curt and his team provided the assistance, interpretation of the law and guidance that I needed to successfully address an employment issue. Corporate management and HR staff didn't take my claims seriously until I hired an attorney. Curt helped me craft a letter proposing a separation agreement that got their attention. After two months of getting "the corporate runaround", we fairly resolved the matter in a couple weeks, with minimal legal expense for both parties.

Curt Drake exceeded my expectations when unfortunate circumstances arose. Provide your complete file, voice your complete story, then let him proceed to work. Curt has your back! His communication skills speak highly of his strong character. I recommend Curt Drake.
