Personal information

Mikayla grew up in Missoula, Montana active in a variety of sports and community service opportunities. After earning her Bachelor of Business Administration from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, she headed East to attend Duquesne University School of Law in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although she loved supporting the Pittsburgh Penguins, Montana has always been her home and she returned and visited the University of Montana School of Law for her final year of law school. While attending, she participated on the school’s Negotiation’s team and won the ABA Regional Negotiations Tournament.

She was admitted to the Montana Bar in 2022 and began her legal practice at HagEstad Law Group, PLLC. She was then licensed in Arizona in 2023 and joined Spoon Gordon, PC.

She has found her passion for insurance defense, in particular being sensitive to the needs of each individual insured. She also focuses her practice on real estate transactions, contract creation and review, and business formation. With experience participating in the creation of multiple LLCs and a other entities to acquisition of her client’s business or acquiring businesses for her clients, she prides herself on her ability navigate the complexities of business law.

When not found in the office, Mikayla is spending time serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). She enjoys staying active and spending time with her family in the area.

Dan and Bryan are the absolute best. I could not have asked for better representation. I was in a car accident in 2011 and was injured and they dealt with the insurance companies and doctors when I had to have surgery and really just fought hard for me and had my best interests 100%. They were always there for me and if I called or emailed always got back to me quickly. But Bryan and Dan really went above and beyond my expectations of what I expected in an attorney and I’m so glad found them and chose them for my case. I can’t thank them enough for all the hard work they put into helping me, and how amazing they treated me throughout the whole process. Love these guys! Thank you again.
