New law clerk, Mike O’Brien, is a Montana native who is thrilled to be working in his home state, even if it isn’t in his hometown of Missoula. O’Brien previously worked for the Glacier County Attorney’s office, which opened up new possibilities for him. After his wife, Jolyne, secured a job as a teacher in Conrad, their destination was set.
Together, with their young son, Creighton—who, according to dad, is “a ball of fun, and growing so fast”—they picked up and moved.
O’Brien is a graduate of Loyola Sacred Heart in Missoula, and also Carroll College in Helena where he received his BA in Political Science and Public Administration. He obtained his Juris Doctorate at the University of Montana Law School in Missoula.
