Daniel’s work ethic is important to the success of Bidegaray Law Firm. Daniel saw firsthand, the struggles of hard working people and families growing up on a farm and ranch in eastern Montana. His parents immigrated to eastern Montana from southern France, starting with nothing except a strong work ethic. They raised their family on the farm and ranch and educated Daniel and his sisters to have advanced degrees. His father had only an eighth grade education because southern France was in a deep recession and he needed to work to provide for his family. Daniel’s parents instilled in him and his siblings the importance of education and hard work. This work ethic has translated into substantial results for his clients.

Daniel enjoys hiking, cycling and all the other outdoor activities that Bozeman has to offer. Daniel is a first generation American and is proud of his Basque heritage.
