Wilton H. Strickland was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, graduating in 1996.  Later he attended the University of Virginia School of Law, graduating in 2000 and then returning to Florida.  While in Florida he practiced litigation covering a wide variety of areas such as commercial disputes, international matters, premises liability, products liability, contracts, property, and constitutional law. In 2010 Wilton moved to Missoula, Montana, and practiced in the areas of insurance defense, insurance coverage, and bad faith until establishing his own practice in 2013.

The Montana Bar selected Wilton to join a delegation of attorneys that traveled to Cuba in February of 2013 to analyze the Cuban legal system and help improve relations between our two countries.  Wilton enjoys helping conduct and coach for the annual Jessup Moot Court Competition, which focuses on international law and draws competitors from law schools around the world.  Wilton participated in the competition while he was a law student, and he has served as a judge for the oral rounds or for scoring competitor memorials ever since.  Wilton speaks Spanish, plays competitive chess, and is an avid skier.
