Diane thrives on the spark of innovation; thinks “five steps ahead” with her clients to anticipate problems before they happen; and stands ready to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively when needed.
She brings her own brand of invention, collaboration, and relentless advocacy to clients and causes. Prior to starting Conradi Anderson, she practiced as a legal service lawyer in Oregon and Montana, started a solo law office and founded and directed Whitefish Legacy Partners, a recreation and conservation nonprofit.
Diane also co-founded Flathead County’s first pro-bono attorney program for low income families, which earned her an award from the Montana State Bar. Diane was the “innovative legal mind behind the Whitefish Trail” project—a precedent setting 19+ million dollar conservation and recreation project with 2000 acres of protected land and 36 miles of natural single track biking and hiking trails.
In addition to her law practice, she has served on the Montana State Parks and Recreation Board since its inception in 2015, and is a board member of ChickTech Missoula, a group dedicated to increasing the number of girls and women in technology.
Ms. Conradi received her law degree from the University of Oregon, and her undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina Honors College.
