Shenandoah Roath

Meet Shenandoah

Shenandoah grew up primarily in Fargo, North Dakota, and Bloomington, Indiana, returning to Forsyth, Montana, and Bigfork, Montana regularly to visit her family. Before college, she spent two years in AmeriCorps, traveling the country and feeding her wanderlust and her desire to help as many people as possible. After two terms with AmeriCorps, she returned to Bloomington to attend Indiana University for her undergraduate degree in biology and philosophy. 


She finally joined her family in Bozeman in 2007, where she worked in a microbiology lab with little satisfaction. After a lot of thought about the changes she wanted to see in the world, and how she could help make those changes happen, she enrolled at the University of Montana School of Law in 2011. She graduated three years later and moved to Livingston immediately after earning her license to practice. She worked for two years in Livingston, where she fell in love with practicing criminal defense. She accepted a job with the Office of the State Public Defenders in Helena to gain more criminal defense experience and sharpen her trial skills. She worked briefly for a civil firm in Helena before starting Roath Law. Now she’s ready to give you the personal attention your criminal defense case needs.


Shenandoah spends her free time hiking the hills of Helena and skiing at Bridger Bowl, while thinking about how to get you the best possible outcome.
