Firm Overview

The Darty Law Office limits our practice to Estate Planning because our goal is not to maximize quantity, but to maximize quality. Estate planning is a highly complex area of law and one not to be dabbled in. We feel that the only way to stay on top of all of the changes in the law is to limit our distractions and focus on doing only what we are most passionate about.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

The traditional approach to estate planning has been centered around the drafting of a will and billing by the hour. The Darty Law Firm does not focus on document reparation, but rather cultivating and nurturing relationships. As life changes for a family, so should its estate plan. When a client presents a legal need to us, we can typically assess he work involved and will propose a flat fee for the work. This way the client is not surprised by unexpected bills.

Steve Darty

Steve is a member of WealthCounsel, a national consortium of estate planning attorneys, the State Bar of Montana Trust and Estates section, and the Western Montana Estate Planning Council.

Every family has a unique story and deserves a unique plan. When I am not helping other families, I am spending time with mine. I am a single father of an energetic six year old boy named Gus. We can usually be found chasing adventures in the great Montana outdoors.
