What We Do
The Montana Citizens' Advocate is directly charged by the Governor with assisting Montanans in their interactions with state executive branch agencies. Folks often need a little help navigating the rules, requirements, statutes or roles of state government. The Citizens' Advocate, true to its name, advocates on behalf of Montanans and offers direction and assistance within state government.
The Office of the Citizens' Advocate is not able to intervene in matters restricted to the jurisdiction of federal, local or tribal governments, school districts, and other state-wide elected officials or non-executive branch agencies.
The Citizens' Advocate is not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. They cannot intervene in judicial or quasi-judicial proceedings, or in criminal or civil legal matters within the jurisdiction of courts.
The Citizens' Advocate is not able to intervene in disputes between private citizens and/or businesses. In all these cases, however, the Citizens' Advocate can refer people to the appropriate authorities.
Please let the Governor know how you believe the Citizens' Advocate can improve this web presence or the services offered to Montanans.
