Boone Karlberg News

Boone Karlberg is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our colleague and dear friend, Dean Stensland, on February 28, 2023.  Dean was an attorney with Boone Karlberg from 1990, until his retirement at the end of 2020.  Dean was also President of Boone Karlberg for over a decade.  Most importantly, Dean was an inspiration to all of us – professionally, personally and emotionally.  While Dean will be dearly missed by everyone, his integrity, advocacy and enthusiasm for life will remain deep-rooted in all of us.  Boone Karlberg extends our deepest care and condolence to the entire Stensland family.

Boone Karlberg P.C. extends our congratulations to Natasha P. Jones on her well deserved admittance to membership in the International Society of Barristers (ISOB).  Membership is extended to advocates of exceptional talent whose qualities – including integrity, honor, and collegiality – embody the spirit of the true legal professional. 

Membership is extended by invitation and only after a thorough and rigorous screening process that considers the lawyer’s abilities, experience, accomplishments, and ethical standards as assessed by trial lawyers and judges in the jurisdiction in which the lawyer practices.  The Society nurtures excellent and professionalism advocacy by its recognition of members’ achievements.  There are less than 20 Montana lawyers admitted as members of ISOB including recognized leaders of the profession such as Hon. Dana L. Christensen, Jim Goetz and Mikel Moore.  As Fellows of the Society, members are committed to the highest ethical standards and to civility in their personal and professional relationships.  The Society has Fellows from every State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Australia, Canada, England, Scotland and Ireland.


The Society was conceived to bring together the best of the trial bar in a setting devoid of partisan interests, whether political or across a plaintiff/defendant divide.  Meetings provide an opportunity to consider issues of ethics and excellence in advocacy as well as the crucial role of litigation and the rule of law in a democratic society.


ISOB members are committed to safeguarding the right to trial by jury, improving advocacy skills, recognizing the rights of citizens in the judicial process.  Tasha has done that in a multitude of ways, including teaching trial advocacy at the Advanced Trial Advocacy program, her involvement with law school education and her devotion to the continued improvement of the annual Bench-Bar CLE.


Tasha will be formally inducted into ISOB at the March meeting of the Society in Barcelona, Spain, in March, 2023.
