Weinberg & Hromadka provides effective and affordable legal services in the following practice areas:
Before joining Lindsey Hromadka in forming Weinberg & Hromadka, Michelle clerked for the Honorable Michael E Wheat at the Montana Supreme Court after graduating from the University of Montana School of Law. After her clerkship, Michelle formed Tafoya Law Firm, PLLC with the goal of serving clients in the areas of land use, local government, and constitutional law.
While at the University of Montana School of Law, Michelle was the executive editor of the Montana Law Review and published the following comment in the Winter 2016 issue:
Michelle Tafoya, Reframing the Framework: Direct Democracy, State Constitutional Interpretation, and the Legislative-Administrative Question in Montana, 77 Mont. L. Rev. 151 (2016).
Michelle was also a quarter-finalist in the national Environmental Moot Court Competition.
Michelle originally hails from Wathena, Kansas. She holds a Master's degree in Environmental Policy and Management from the University of Denver and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Northwest Missouri State University. Prior to law school, Michelle had a career in the nonprofit sector, advocating for clean energy and climate policies at the state and federal level.
Michelle developed her passion for hiking and wildlife while working as a park ranger in Glacier National Park for five summer seasons and studying grizzly bears in the summer of 2005. When she is not working, she is probably traveling with her husband, Dan.
Prior to forming Weinberg & Hromadka, Lindsey worked with many great attorneys throughout the state, including as a legal clerk with Douglas Harris Law Offices in Missoula, an Associate Attorney at Bryan & Travis in Kalispell and an Associate Attorney with Conradi Anderson in Whitefish. Throughout her career, Lindsey has sought to provide efficient, comprehensive and competent legal services without the price tag of a large firm with compatible large expenses. Weinberg & Hromadka was born out of this idea - we strive to deliver affordable and exceptional legal services through high-tech, low-cost means.
Lindsey received her Juris Doctorate degree with honors from the University of Montana School of Law where she graduated early. She was an editor on the Public Land and Resources Law Review, a finalist in the national Environmental Moot Court competition, and is a published author in the Montana Law Review. Lindsey is originally from Houston, Texas. She attended college at Texas State University where she earned her Bachelor's in Arts cum laude.
Lindsey serves as the Secretary on the Flathead Land Trust's Board, volunteers with Girls on the Run, and serves in a Governor appointed position on the Board of Realty Regulation for the State of Montana. Additionally, she serves on the Council for the Natural Resources, Energy & Environmental Law Section of the State Bar of Montana, is a member of the Montana Association of Trial Lawyers, and is licensed in both Montana and Alaska.
When not working hard for her clients, Lindsey can be found in a yoga class or with her husband, Mike, trail running, backpacking, skiing, rafting or cycling throughout Montana.
