Michelle Tafoya Weinberg

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. 

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 Montana77 Mont. L. Rev. 151 (2016).

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. 

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. 

The attorneys with Weinberg & Hromadka have represented the SWNA for the past four years concerning land use issues. During that time they have been extremely professional. They thoroughly research background for our meetings, and they effectively moderate the group. They are also excellent at keeping us apprised of new developments in our cases.
