Travis Dye is a third-generation Montanan, born in Billings and raised in Missoula and Helena. He graduated from Hellgate High School in Missoula after which he attended Seattle University and the University of Montana. Travis graduated from the University of Montana with high honors with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology (emphasis in Criminology). In 2001, he graduated with high honors from the University of Montana School of Law. During law school, Travis was a staff member and co-editor-in-chief of the Montana Law Review and served as an intern at the Missoula County Attorney’s Office. Following graduation, he spent two years as a law clerk to the Honorable Donald W. Molloy, then-Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Montana. After his clerkship, Travis spent four years at a Missoula firm that specializes in insurance defense work. He joined Kalkstein & Johnson in June 2007. In December 2010, Travis became a partner and the firm name was changed to Kalkstein, Johnson & Dye.

Travis is a member of the Montana Bar Association and the Western Montana Bar Association and is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in Montana, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Travis has been selected as a Mountain States Super Lawyer in 2011 (Rising Star), 2012, and 2013. Super Lawyers is not a crime fighting group like the Justice League, but “a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” In 2012, Travis received an “AV Preeminent” rating from Martindale Hubbell, meaning his peers rank him “at the highest level of professional excellence.” Travis is particularly proud of these recognitions because they are based largely on the evaluations of other lawyers and judges.

Hobbies & interests:
The Fun:Outside of The Law, Travis has a wonderful family and enjoys many activities. Travis is married to the lovely and talented Megan Ashton, a Forensic Scientist at the Montana State Crime Lab who definitely has the job people would rather talk about. Travis and Megan have one son, Ciaran, and a vocal cat, Elle. Along with his family (minus the cat), Travis enjoys biking the roads and trails around Missoula; cross-country and downhill skiing anywhere there's snow; hiking; camping; gardening; cooking; and soccer. He even plays a little ultimate frisbee - or tries to. Travis and Megan look forward to keeping up with Ciaran on the road, on the slopes, and on the pitch.Disclaimer: Travis doesn't usually refer to himself in the third-person, but these biographies pretty much require writing like this.Trivia: People who refer to themselves in the third person are "illeists."
