Denny grew up in Helena, Montana, before heading to Gonzaga University where he pursued undergraduate degrees in history and business. After graduating from Gonzaga in 2007, he took time off from his studies to work as an adaptive ski instructor in Colorado. He later returned to Gonzaga University to attend law school, where he focused on natural resource law and graduated with honors in 2011.
Denny began working with Wall, McLean & Gallagher, PLLC (formerly McMahon, Wall & Hubley, PLLC) during his summer break prior to his 3rd year in law school and has continued to practice law with this same law firm ever since. In that time, Denny has worked extensively on a wide range of civil legal matters, ranging from real estate, business law, and estate planning matters to complex civil litigation. Denny has extensive experience in real estate, business law, and estate planning matters, including, but not limited to, representing both buyers and sellers in real estate and business transactions, easements, boundary line disputes, quiet title actions, creating business entities, business mergers and acquisitions, and experience with drafting a variety of contracts, wills and trusts. Denny has also successfully defended numerous lawsuits brought against his clients where, to date, he has obtained a favorable ruling in each case he has argued before the Montana Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Denny is married to Kathy, his farm girl sweetheart raised outside of Shelby, Montana. In his spare time, Denny serves as an officer and director of the Montana Bicycle Guild, Inc., a local non-profit corporation, and in the winter, he also works as a volunteer ski patroller at Big Sky Resort. Denny’s other passions include watching Gonzaga basketball, skiing, mountain biking, rafting, hunting, and any other outdoor activity which allows him to explore the beautiful State of Montana.
