Kiel Duckworth is a Polson, Montana native, born and raised in Lake County Montana. Polson, Montana is located on the south end of Flathead Lake, in Lake County Montana, and also on the Flathead Indian Reservation. Lake County spans approximately from just South of Arlee to South of Kalispell Montana. Lake County includes other towns including Pablo, Ronan, Arlee, St. Ignatius and more.
Flathead Reservation And Flathead Lake
Duckworth Law Office was originally located in Ronan, Montana and moved in 2020 to Polson, Montana. Both Polson and Ronan are on the Flathead Reservation, home of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT). The CSKT has a long a rich history in the area and throughout Western Montana and the Flathead Reservation was established by the Hellgate Treaty of 1855.
The Flathead Reservation is home to Flathead Lake, where locals and tourists flock to the beautiful lake in the summer seasons. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River and a rare gem of crystal clear water and open spaces.
Polson Montana Car Accidents
Polson, Montana is located on Highway 93, a beautiful but dangerous Montana Highway. Highway 93 has the the unfortunate distinction of being one of the most dangerous highways in Montana. Highway 93 is the most dangerous for animal-vehicle collisions, but is also a dangerous highway for vehicle to vehicle collisions. At Duckworth Law we focus on preventable accidents, meaning auto accidents caused by the negligence of a driver.
We are not proud of the fact that Highway 93 cases keep us busy. On the contrary, our hope at Duckworth Law is that our work makes a difference. We aggressively pursue negligent drivers in hopes that we can effect change, by holding responsible drivers accountable. If we can make the difference for one drunk driver, distracted driver, or texting driver, then that is one life potentially saved.
