She is a founding partner at Rhoades & Siefert, PLLC, in Missoula, Montana where she practices litigation. Ms. Siefert represented James Stiffler who was charged with deliberate homicide for shooting a burglar in his home outside of Helena in 2013.  The trial took place in Helena in February 2016 and resulted in a hung jury.
