Nathaniel S. Holloway

Nathaniel S. Holloway joined Paul Ryan & Associates in 2011. He was raised in Missoula, just blocks from the University of Montana campus. He later attended the University of Montana, earning his bachelor’s degree, with honors, in political science. During college he bartended at Stockman’s Bar, a competitive  position at a popular downtown Missoula destination.

Nate graduated, with distinction, from the Pettit College of Law, in the top 15% of his class. He distinguished himself in law school serving as the Student Articles Editor on the Law Review Editorial Board. He also served as a Constitutional Law T.A. and received awards for top grades in Insurance Bad Faith and Employment Discrimination. While in school he served as a judicial extern for U.S. District Court Judge, the Hon. Walter H. Rice, and clerked for the law firm, Drake, Phillips, Kuenzli & Clark.

Upon joining Paul Ryan & Associates, Nate dedicated his practice to criminal defense. In 2014, the National Trial Lawyers recognized him as a “Top 40 under 40” trial attorney for the State of Montana. He is recognized by other lawyers, judges, and his clients, as an ethical and effective advocate. He regularly achieves positive results for his clients by meticulously reviewing evidence and challenging police investigations.  Nate also practices civil litigation, including personal injury and wrongful death.

If you are charged with a crime—or being investigated—you should immediately consult a qualified defense attorney. With the weight of the government against you, nothing is more important than retaining an attorney to advise you through the criminal justice process.  Doing so will often result in a better outcome in your case and protect your constitutional rights.  Initial consultations are always free, so please contact Nate with any of your important legal concerns.  He can be contacted by phone at (406) 542-2233 or email at
