Published in 2012, 489 pages, includes all forms in editable digital format.
From the Forward:
Practicing law is an art. The best legal artists craft documents
that comply with the applicable rule(s) and that achieve their purpose
in a direct, efficient, and professional way. I have drafted models of
each pleading and other document commonly used in civil litigation in
Montana as a starting point for lawyers and judges, particularly those
new to the practice. As Julia Child said in her introduction to her
classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, these recipes are designed
for the "servantless American.”
My forms are intended for the
servantless Montana lawyer: for the sole practitioner, for the new
associate, and for the "mature” lawyer who wishes to update. They are
meant to be used across the state, but you should refer to the local
rules for the district in which your case is filed to be sure that
you’ve met all the local variations. The Clerk of Court in your county
can tell you how to access the current set of local rules, or you can
access them electronically.
These forms are models only, meant to be the base on which you begin.
Like cooking, you should feel free to adjust each form to your
particular taste so that you end up with a book of your own forms. The
only limits to your tinkering are the rules themselves, and as you make
any changes you should consult those rules to ensure that you comply
with them. To make it easy, I have collected the most relevant rules
and statutes which apply to each type of document before the actual
form, current as of November 15, 2011.
