Lyndon Scheveck

Where did you grow up?

Just like Vince and my brother Layne, I grew up in Billings, Montana, went to Bench Elementary, Castle Rock Middle School and graduated from Skyview High School. 

Where did you go to college?

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and a master’s degree in Education, from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota. After my time at DWU, I went on to earn my Juris Doctorate from the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia. There, I was a member of the Criminal Defense Trial Team and earned a certificate in Natural Resources. During law school, I worked in the Deputy Attorney’s office at the Yellowstone County Courthouse.

When you were 5, what did you want to be when you grew up?

At age 5, I wanted to be a professional baseball player.

Why did you decide to get into legal work?

I learned that I wanted to get into the legal field back when I was at Skyview High School, in Mr. Jette’s Government class. I just found law to be very interesting.

What is your primary area of practice?

I practice Criminal law, Expungements, Bankruptcy, Family Law and Personal Injury. I am licensed to practice in Montana, North Dakota and the United States Federal District Court of Montana.

What is the most rewarding part of this work?

As an attorney, you have a unique ability to help people. When you win a case, or you’ve helped your client get the settlement they deserve, and you see that smile, that’s when it’s all worth it.

What advice would you give someone wanting to join your team?

My advice, for anyone wanting to become an attorney, is to never stop trying. Never stop believing in yourself. But most importantly, never give up. When your day comes, and it will, you will be ready.

What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

When I am not in the office, you’ll find me coaching at the local gym, or fly fishing one of Montana’s many beautiful rivers.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?

If I could be any superhero, I would be Captain America, from the Marvel comic books!
