In 2009, Ms. Siefert received her J.D. from the University of Montana School of Law. 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. Following the trial the County Attorney dismissed the case. In April 2016 at Carroll College, Ms. Siefert discussed the case and how Sociology helped her become a trial attorney.
