About Us

Jennifer Forsyth

Jennifer is the owner and attorney at Hi-Line Law, PLLC. Jennifer was born and raised in Havre, and started law school in 2006.  While in law school, Jennifer spent her summers working for the BLM fighting fire and mapping noxious weeds. Jennifer graduated from the University of Montana School of Law in 2009, and has been serving the hi-line ever since. In March 2017, she had the opportunity to buy her own firm, which she eagerly took on. She does everything at the firm from practicing law to fixing the sprinklers!

Jennifer has many different practice areas, but her favorite is getting to know our clients and their families, and helping them form and manage their farms, ranches and small businesses. Being involved this way gives Jennifer an opportunity to help clients with all their legal needs, including estate planning, real estate transactions, probates and more.

When she’s not at work, she likes to spend time with family and friends and her two dogs, Ollie and Carl.

Cassie Ladenburg
Office Manager

The smiling face you see when you walk into Hi-Line Law, PLLC. Cassie has no official title, because she does a little bit of everything. She performs all the day to day tasks to keep the office running smoothly, including (but definitely not limited to) answering phones, managing payroll and billing, keeping the office stocked with supplies, and most importantly, making the clients feel welcome. There is nothing she can’t do, and the firm could not operate without her.

Cassie has lived on the hi-line most of her life. After graduating from the University of Montana, she returned to Havre and married Mike, and they live on the family farm north of Havre. When she’s not at the office, Cassie stays busy chasing her two sons, Jace (3) and Cooper (8 months). Cassie enjoys cooking and crafting in her spare time.

JoAnn Normandy
Legal Assistant 

JoAnn has more than 30 years of experience in the legal field! She prepares documents and filings and makes sure the paperwork, whether it is a will, lease, or any other legal document, reflects each client’s needs. She also corresponds with our clients and makes sure their questions are answered. She keeps us in line, makes us laugh, and we would be lost without her.

JoAnn grew up on a farm/ranch down the hi-line in Malta and moved to Havre to attend MSU-Northern, and she’s been here ever since. When she’s not at the office, she enjoys fishing, camping and spending time with her husband Bruce and two sons, Trent and Brett.

Ashley Forsyth

Since graduating Ashley has worked for a landscaping company and most recently at Missoula Federal Credit Union.  She recently decided to move back to her hometown, and we are very excited to have her on our team!
