WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Always the first choice.
    

Gregg has been our personal and business attorney since we moved back to Montana many, many years ago. He’s very accessible, and always keeps us informed of developments. Whenever a friend or business associate needs a lawyer, I always refer that person to Gregg because I know that even if he can’t handle it, he will help the person find the right lawyer in any event.

$100,000 in attorney fees for less than $7k
    

Based on the testimony of [the attorney witness], the stipulation of the parties, and the Court’s experience, the hourly rate charged and amount of fees expended [by Gregg Smith] are eminently reasonable. . . Overall legal fees approaching $100,000 would not have surprised the Court. That only $6,666.91 was expended defending against the Board’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction is a testament to the reasonableness and efficiency of the representation.

Matt served as our legal counsel in an insurance case stemming from a traumatic accident we were involved in. He was competent and honest from the beginning. He kept us aprised of our options and fully informed as to what actions he was taking on our behalf. He took the time to make sure we understood what was happening and helped us navigate the often confusing world of insurance litigation. Without a lawyer of Matt's caliber our situation could have turned out much differently. In short, Matt is the kind of guy you want on your side. He is a tenacious and effective representative and we would highly recommend his services.

Outstanding attorney -- professional, detailed and tenacious
    

We hired Stephanie from a recommendation and could not be happier. We had a complex case involving the biggest investment in our lives – our house. Stephanie met with us for a consultation and we were able to discuss all of our options and realistic possible conclusions.

Immediately we were very comfortable with her style and the way that she communicated with us. We felt this was important as we would need to communicate often and there needs to be a strong relationship in place. She is personable and this made us feel confident in hiring her to take on our case.

We were even more impressed with her work ethic as she is very organized and always kept us in the loop for any new developments, information or filings. She also would let us know what she needed from us for the case to move forward. Unlike most attorney experiences we have heard, Stephanie was always in contact with us and quickly got back to us when we called with questions.

Stephanie is intelligent and also diligent in her case law research. We liked that she was able to boil down this legalese into something that she could explain to us in layman terms and not make us feel like she was talking down to us. As said before, this was a complex case and we wanted to understand everything that was going on. Stephanie is also a very aggressive negotiator and exudes confidence and knowledge – the other attorneys soon learned that she would not be intimidated or bullied into a position that was not favorable to us.

In the end, were were able to reach a settlement with the insurance company that was agreeable to both of us, and a far better position than what they first tried to offer us. My wife and I would highly recommend hiring Stephanie as your attorney.

Highly recommend his legal services!
    

Matt Meade's legal counsel came highly recommended to me by another (also highly recommended, by a co-worker) attorney I had called whose schedule was too full to take my auto accident injury. I had never sought legal counsel before. I did not know what to expect and I felt a little intimidated by the whole process, but I'm glad that I hired Matt to represent me.

Matt is very personable, energetic, and upfront in his personality and tenacious and a "go-getter" in his professionalism. He worked hard to advocate on my behalf, he is detail-oriented, and he routinely spoke with me personally and updated me on the status of my case. If I called his office and he was not readily available, he always returned my calls shortly thereafter. He is an honest person and he doesn't sugar-coat anything. I knew every step of the way what to expect. I respect Matt Meade as a person and I respect his professional integrity.

I would highly recommend Matt Meade to anyone looking for a good personal injury attorney. I can't thank him enough for his expertise in his field and due diligence in bringing my own personal situation to a successful outcome.

Fantastic representation.
    

Kaitlyn was amazing in keeping on top of my case and keeping me in the loop. She worked hard to help me keep my job and livelihood even though it was an odd circumstance. I really appreciate her help, empathy and caring attitude.

Phenomenal attorney!
    

Matt was very understanding and listened to everything I said without prejudice. I can trust his judgement and guidance on what needs to be done to best handle my situation. Matt took on my case with confidence and had a resolution in under a month. I am very grateful for his assistance and would recommend his support to all friends and family.

Efficient, cost-conscious, and responsive.
    

Gregg has represented my personal and business interests for many years. He has always proven to be diligent in his pursuit to resolve any matters quickly and efficiently. Even though litigation is very expensive, I know he tries to be cost-conscious. He works hard to keep me informed. He’s very accessible and if I have a quick question, he will take my call, and can usually answer it on the spot, without sending me a bill for $1,000.00 a month later. I would recommend Gregg for any personal and business related legal matters.
