Miva VanEngen fights vigorously for her clients who have been criminally charged with a DUI, misdemeanor or a felony. She also advocates for her clients in simple and complex divorces, parenting plans, asset and debt distributions, marital agreements and other family law matters including wills and guardianships. She works diligently in her representation of clients who have been injured by others: whether by car crash, negligent acts of others, or at work (personal injury and workers' compensation claims).
Although she is based in Missoula, her clients can be found all over Montana and in other states. Technological advances make it possible to represent clients without the need for travel, depending on the reason for representation.
Miva is a mother and grandmother. She loves the outdoors and spends her free time in her garden and running, hiking, or biking numerous trails and mountains.
