Philosophy & History:

Among the founders of Ugrin were Neil Ugrin, John Alexander and Gary Zadick. The founding partners helped restore the historic Railroad Square building in downtown Great Falls which is where the firm continues to practice law. The original litigation emphasis of the founding partners remains and the Ugrin legal team continues to build on this foundation and legacy.

Ugrin is unique in Montana because of its litigation and trial experience, the depth of its knowledge in its core practice areas, its ability to litigate to successful resolution, cases which present sophisticated legal problems and its long-standing commitment to providing first-rate legal services. We routinely advise clients on risk management in the complement of legal services we provide.

The Ugrin legal team prides itself on the thoughtful, aggressive and timely handling of cases. Our goal is to provide the best, most efficient representation possible. We have found that a team approach to advocacy – working with each other and attention to communicating with our clients – serves this objective.

The founding partners were committed to the community and this commitment has carried forward to the present day firm. The firm’s attorneys are actively involved in many and various community groups and endeavors, both legal and non-legal.
