Mr. Connors brings a unique perspective to the practice of law.  After obtaining a degree in Mathematics from Montana State University, he founded and operated Connors Construction, LLC, which specialized in building multi-million dollar custom residences in Big Sky, Montana.  His craftsmanship was featured in several books and trade journals, including the cover of Ralph Kylloe’s 2010 book Rustic Elegance.

Jack always had an interest in the complex nature of the law and chose to couple his ten years of small business, real estate, and natural resources expertise with a Juris Doctorate degree.  In 2013, Jack graduated with honors from the University of Montana School of Law.  Since then he has focused on construction litigation, real property disputes, environmental litigation, business disputes, and water law.

When not exploring the law, Jack is exploring the world seeking the next mountain to climb or ski.  He also enjoys ranch life with his family.
