We are proud of our ability to assist our clients in piecing their life back together after experiencing the devastating impact an accident or serious injury.
I believe Paul is in the 99th percentile of ALL lawyers.
I've gotten to know Paul Odegaard of Odegaard Kovacich Snipes through the past couple years and every time our paths cross I leave more impressed with his passion and knowledge in the legal arena. Paul was the first lawyer I met whose practice was located in Montana. As a practicing lawyer in Florida, we have more than our fair share of lawyers but I believe Paul is in the 99th percentile of ALL lawyers of whom I've had occasion to develop a professional relationship. If I had a case in Montana, I would call Paul as soon as I possibly could because he has my trust that he would handle it with great professional responsibility and results! Give Paul's office a call and I believe you will have a wonderful experience.

Your work saved us from dealing with inconsiderate or rude case workers
I want to take a moment and let you know how much I appreciated your work on my behalf. From the very beginning you took care of all the paperwork, scheduled doctor visits when needed, fielded all phone calls and completely took the burden off our shoulders. Your work saved us from dealing with inconsiderate or rude case workers in my case, especially when I never knew how to reply to their rude attitude.
You always listened when I had questions. I am impressed with your quick response with a phone call before the end of the day or the next morning keeping me will informed, thus creating complete confidence that my case was being handled properly.
I also appreciate the phone calls just check up on me to see how I was doing. Thank you for settling my case in a fair and equitable manner. A BIG thank you to both you and Lucas!
— Walter K., Sep 2020
I had a wonderful experience working with Jay and his team. Very professional and helpful every step of the way. I highly recommend them.
— Tesa D., Aug 2020
Luv the way they treat us.
— Angela M., Aug 2020
I highly recommend this firm.
AJ Miller and Kari Lahley were very responsive, extremely kind, and kept me informed, they both would take phone calls even if it was a trivial question I had. Most importantly, they won my case. I highly recommend this firm.
— Jamma V., Aug 2020
They fight for their clients and do it for the right reasons.
I can't recommend this law firm and Ben Snipes enough. Good, honest, hard-working people. They fight for their clients and do it for the right reasons - to help people.
— Jami W., Jul 2020
Excellent to Work With
Ross Johnson was excellent to work with. His understanding of Montana law was evident as he helped us deal with a home insurance claim. He truly took our case personally and kept my wife and I updated throughout the process. So glad we were recommended to Ross by a friend!

There's no doubt in my mind I would seek help from this firm!
Last spring, I was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. I began getting treatment but as time went on, things began to get more and more complicated and I knew I needed help.
I decided to contact Odegaard Kovacich Snipes and it was the best decision I could have ever made!
My attorney, Lucas Wallace, treated me with compassion and kindness. He was exceptionally thorough and worked hard on my behalf. Because of Odegaard Kovacich Snipes and specifically Lucas Wallace, I had the best possible outcome. I know now that I am secure should I ever need any further medical treatment as a result of being hit. There's no doubt in my mind that I would seek out help from this firm should I ever need it in the future. I would definitely recommend them!
— Leslie E., Apr 2020
I refer clients to them all the time.
I have had two issues that Ben Snipes helped us with. One for a client and one for our business. The client's issue was bad faith disability insurance situation, resolved fast and to the satisfaction of my client. The other a problem with a vendor at my business and Ben was able to get us compensated in full for their negligence. One case was in Kalispell, MT. One case was in Missoula, MT. Both cases handled professionally and with perfect outcome.
We chose this law firm as my now deceased son (an attorney) knew the quality of work that Ben Snipes could do for us.
I was fortunate enough to get to know Ben. Work with Ben and my client and my business are financially much better for this association.
I refer clients to Ben Snipes all the time. This is a professional and trustworthy law firm and Ben Snipes is someone with whom I would trust my life and livelihood.

I would highly recommend them 1000 percent!
My husband (Rod) had an issue at the hospital. They violated his DNR wishes twice. Once on Monday and then again on Tuesday. He felt this was unfair and wanted to make sure it did not happen to any one else. His wishes were put out there so he wouldn't have to go on suffering any longer.
Kovacich and Snipes came to our home each and every time to interview Rod. He was not able to get out of the house, so it made it really nice that they came to him. We choose this law firm, because Rod knew Michael McKeon (also in Law practice) in Butte who got in touch with Kovacich and Snipes. We really liked working with them because they made you feel at ease, and did everything they could to make him comfortable. They kept you informed at each step of the process and what would be happening next. Unfortunately, we had to go all the way and go to trial with this, and it was sad because Rod could not see the outcome of this case. He had passed away before trial came. His wishes were to make sure I finished what he had started, So I granted his wishes and with the best lawyers around. The outcome of the trial was he had won his case. The jury saw fit that there was negligence. My life has changed so much. I know Rod did not want to live in pain and suffering anymore, but completing this challenge for him was awesome. Thanks to Kovacich and Snipes it is making my life a lot easier. I am sorry that Rod couldn't be around to have some of the things that would have made his life better and more comfortable. But thanks again to Odegaard Kovacich Snipes I don't have to worry anymore. I would highly recommend them 1000 percent.
— Cheryl O., Mar 2020
I really don't know what I would have done
As an injured worker I am very fortunate to have Paul as my attorney for mu worker's compensation claim! Thanks to Paul and his guidance I went all the way to the finish line! I had ran into family issues back in December that was pushing me to settle early my claims. I explained my personal situation to Paul and he helped me make the best decision for both me and my family. I really don't know what I would have done if I never met Paul! Thank you Paul for everything you did for me and not giving up on me when I was being pushed into a corner! If you ever need anything from me just remember that I am just a phone call away!
— John F., Feb 2020
If you need an attorney for workplace injury... this is where you need to go.
I retained Ben Snipes for my workmans compensation claim. Throughout the entire ordeal, Ben was understanding, determined, and passionate about my claim. He behaved with me like I was his only client and listened to every concern I had. Paperwork was filed in a timely manner and communication was a top priority. He was honest and diligent and I felt completely safe and taken care of by his firm. His staff was supportive and kind and I really felt like the entire office was fighting for me. My case was resolved and a settlement reached that was within our goal within a year's time. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney he really blew it out of the park. I am getting the medical care I need and have money to take care of my family because of Ben as his associates. Five stars isn't nearly enough. If you need an attorney for a workplace injury, Odegaard Kovacich Snipes, PC is where you need to go.
— Sky S., Feb 2020
My entire family thanks them for their help in this matter.
My father was diagnosed with Mesothelioma and we were referred to Odegaard Kovacich Snipes by a local attorney. Mark and Ben came to Billings to meet with him at different times and decided to take his case. As his health declined, they made several more trips to both our home and his hospice room. All of the staff has shown an great amount of compassion for our situation and my father's health. They were always responsive to my calls and emails, even in the evening, on weekends and holidays. My father passed before the case was resolved, but they continued to fight for him and the companies did settle out of court. My entire family thanks them for their help in this matter. I would highly recommend them.
— Cindy G., Jan 2020

— Terry S., Jan 2020
Never too busy to answer questions or visit with us.
Ben Snipes was recommended to us. He helped my husband get what was due to him through a Workmans Compensation claim. Attorney Snipes worked tirelessly and eventually secured a settlement for my husband that enabled us to continue living in our home since my husband could no longer work. We highly recommend this firm. Ben is a caring person and never was too busy to answer questions or visit with us.
— LuAnn C., Jan 2020

I highly recommend this firm for any Workers comp issues.
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Ross Johnson represent me with my case against Montana State Fund.
I fought for 2 1/2 years by myself before getting nowhere so I finally found Ross. Thanks to him he handled my case great and took the stress off of me. I felt very comfortable with him taking over and I knew I could trust his judgement on the different issues at hand.
I would like to thank Ross again for taking me on as his client and I highly recommend this firm for any Workers comp issues.
Thank you Ross...

I would recommend this firm to anyone looking.
— JD O., Dec 2019
Since they joined the fight, things have been getting progressively better!
I was injured in a job related collision on the highway, & then to top it all off, I was getting the runaround from work comp. We had the surgery approved & scheduled(2 months out...), only to have work comp later deny it. To make a long story short, since Ben has joined us in the fight with work comp, things have been getting progressively better, & surgery has been re-scheduled! I know that we still have a long ways to go, but with Ben on our team, I am very confident that things will turn out for the best! He constantly keeps me informed on what's going on, & answers my emails, etc. very quickly, & that alone impresses me beyond words! I would,(& I have), definitely recommend Ben Snipes!
— Gary O., Dec 2019
Wouldn't hesitate to use this office again!!
After getting hurt I fought the run around on my own and found nothing but dead ends That's when I decided to hire Ross Johnson. Never once did Ross or his office disappoint !!!!!!! Thank you for taking the lead and fighting for me, and most of all winning my case allowing me to move on with my life. Highly recomended Wouldn't hesitate to use this office again !!

A huge "Thank You" to Paul and the whole team at Odegaard Kovacich Snipes from me and my family!
My expectations were met and exceeded! Paul is the real deal. He walked me through my work comp case with ease (even in the midst of multiple road bumps). Paul communicated with me throughout the whole case so I always felt in the loop. I was confident the whole time that Paul would represent me in getting the best possible outcome - and he did. If I had to do it all over again, the only thing I would have done differently was involve Paul in my case at the first sign of there being an issue, possibly even from the start. Representing myself in the beginning was nearly impossible in my situation... It felt like I was playing a game that I didn't know the rules to. Paul fought hard for what was right, using a masterful mix of "knowing the rules of the game", authenticity, humility and logical reasoning. A huge "Thank You" to Paul and the whole team at Odegaard Kovacich Snipes from me and my family!
— Nuck R., Dec 2019
I would recommend them to anyone seeking a good personal injury attorney in Montana.
I am an attorney in Wisconsin and we worked with Attorney Ben Snipes on a recent case involving an accident in Montana with injured plaintiffs from Wisconsin. Attorney Snipes was knowledgeable, professional and aggressive and I would recommend him to anyone seeking a good personal injury attorney in Montana.

I think he's one of the best and would highly recommend his firm to anyone.
I would highly recommend Paul to anyone who needs a good lawyer. Paul knows what he is doing. I would use Paul again in a heart beat. He is excellent. He kept me informed of what was going on and got results. He is a hard working attorney. He not only put his knowledge to work on my case, but he also has his heart into it. I never worried about him not returning my phone calls or emails. He quickly returned my calls and answers any questions I had. I think he's one of the best and would highly recommend his firm to anyone having to deal with a workers' compensation issue. Thank you Paul.
— JoAnna B., Nov 2019
Love this amazing team!
Absolutely amazing people to work with. Looking back I wouldn't have picked any body else to help me with my case. They listened to what I had to say, and was always there when I needed them. I never had to wait for responses, they were quick and was always happy to speak to me. Love this amazing team!

I believe Odegaard Kovacich Snipes has a great group of professional people who as a company respects and understands the needs of their clients and without a doubt puts them first.
Paul, I wanted to tell you Thank You for coming in and taking over my case in my time of need. Paul you do not know what it means to me that you provided much needed guidance and professional straight to the point communication in this case. You took the time after hours and sometimes in your family time to keep me updated. That is a true sign of a man who has people in his best interest. Also, Thank you for letting me be me sometimes colorful language and well high anxiety frustration where I am sure the F word was like every 3 word you let me express myself with no restrictions!! Laughs....burned your ear a few times :) I truly can not express my gratitude to Paul Odegaard for taking my case after the total let down from my previous law firm. I am truly grateful for Colette , Kristin, Anna the manager these women are truly exceptional assets to this firm. They listened to me, comforted me, fought for me and replied countless emails and phone calls as the case went on. They are the best!!! Also wanted to Thank Hannah she has been on top of things and has gone out of her way to keep up communication and all needs to get things handled. In closing as this will be my last email I believe Odegaard Kovacich Snipes has a great group of professional people who as a company respects and understands the needs of their clients and without a doubt puts them first. Thank You so very much!!!

There are plenty of good attorneys in Billings but Paul is one that has a strong future ahead of him.
We met Paul at a different firm and we're so impressed by him that we stayed with him. We will continue to use and recommend him to anyone.

Thanks for everything Paul!

My case had me very concerned about my chance to come out the winner. Though in my case, being as injured as I am, I still don't consider myself the winner.

I never want to be in this situation again, but if I am I know who has my back!
It's all really slow no matter how you look at it. Trying to balance kids, medical, and well life is hard in addition to an insurance company that doesn't want to talk to you. I am so thankful to A.J. and his staff for all they've done for me and my family in our time of need!! I never want to be in this situation again, but if I am I know who has my back! Thank you!!

Paul was incredibly supportive to me and for that I'm ever so grateful.
After years of the run around with Work Comp, my husband and I finally decided to hire an attorney. With much consideration, we went to Paul Odegaard. From the initial meeting to the last phone call, Paul has been NOTHING but supportive, helpful and accommodating. My husband required several surgeries and procedures to deal with his injury and it felt as though Paul was right by our side advocating for him with Work Comp and the Doctor making sure my husband got what he needed in a timely matter. As the spouse of an injured worker, my life became that of a caretaker, taxi driver, secretary and advocate for my husband. There were many times that I had to call Paul and discuss things on my husband's behalf. Paul was incredibly supportive to me and for that I'm ever so grateful. I will forever recommend Paul to anyone that has a problem with Work Comp.
— Lisa L., Jul 2018

They are true to their word about a free consultation.

Thank you so much Mr. Dufrechou and his assistant Maija, you are both awesome.
My attorney Jay Dufrechou did an excellent job handling my case. I wasn't sure if I needed an attorney or not but there was a lot of stuff going on that I didn't quite understand so I decided to meet with Mr. Dufrechou just to help me understand what was going on. After our meeting, I found out that I was being over paid, and was going to have to pay all that back. Didn't seem fair, I didn't know I was being over charged and it wasn't My job to figure it out. But not only did Mr. Dufrechou keep me from having to pay all that back, but I also got some extra cash that I didn't think I would get so that was an excellent added bonus. Thank you so much Mr. Dufrechou and his assistant Maija, you are both awesome.
