Peter Taylor

Professional: Associate Attorney

Prior to entering the practice of law, Peter spent sixteen years in production agriculture, operating a commercial cow-calf operation with his wife, parents, and brothers. The ranch’s unique location in Southcentral Montana provided Peter with valuable insights into how several different areas of law play out on the ground, which gives him a leg up as he tackles complicated land use issues for his clients. Peter expanded on his practical experience when he attended law school and focused his legal studies on those areas of law with the greatest impact on Montana’s farms and ranches. While in law school, Peter was privileged to clerk for both the Chief Judge of the Montana Water Court, the Honorable Russel McElyea, and the Honorable Dana L. Christensen, who was then serving as Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Montana.
