Bret T. Allred

Attorney at Law
(Montana & Wyoming)

As a youth I traveled the world with my family while my father served in the U.S. Navy. In college my heart was stolen by a country girl from Wyoming who accepted my proposal of marriage and settled down on the Wyoming/Montana border.

I have practiced divorce and custody law, oil & gas law, creditors rights, and business organizations, but in 2009 I focused my law practice on consumer bankruptcy. Through bankruptcy I can help people find happiness.

Debt, with its unrelenting interest, deprives people of hope and manipulates them into the belief that things cannot get better. Bankruptcy can restore that hope by removing the shackles of debt restoring financial freedom and a joyful life. I cannot adequately describe my delight from guiding people through bankruptcy to financial freedom and I give thanks to the hundreds of past clients who gave me this opportunity.




I have moved around the country a bit, but I'm happy to be back home in Park County among familiar landscapes and faces. Yellowstone Bankruptcy allows me to utilize my education and work experience while meeting and helping wonderful people. In my spare time, you can find me serving with my church, watching Green Bay football, listening to Zac Brown Band or off on some adventure with my family.




Before anything, I love being a mother to my four children. Despite how great my family is, I have always been drawn toward bookkeeping and I have an associate degree in that field. Yellowstone Bankruptcy is a great work environment with a friendly staff and I enjoy helping people obtain a positive financial future.


For years we have helped people from all corners of Wyoming and Montana file for bankruptcy relief without leaving home. Attorney communications, document exchanges, and bankruptcy courses can be done by phone, email and over the internet. The mandatory 341 meeting of creditors is done via video conferencing from your phone or computer. Bankruptcy does still require original signatures (wet signatures) on most documents so you may need to go to the post office once or twice.

We are somewhat old fashioned and like to give our clients the opportunity to meet face to face and shake their hand, so that is why we have three locations to better serve your needs. Each location has a secure mail box where you can deposit documents for our review (Please no originals. It saves on postage if we don't have to return them.)

  • 725 Grand Avenue, Billings MT 59102

  • 313 W Mendenhall, Suite 5, Bozeman MT 59715

  • 117 N Bent St, Suite C, Powell WY 82435.


    Yellowstone Bankruptcy was founded in 2009 by attorney Bret T. Allred who left his former firm to focus on consumer bankruptcy. We have filed hundreds of bankruptcies for people from Casper, Jackson, Sheridan, Thermopolis, Basin, Greybull, Worland, Lovell, Cody, Powell, Billings, Colstrip, Glendive, Sydney, Kalispell, Roundup, Great Falls, Red Lodge, Livingston, and many other towns in between.

    Don't trust your bankruptcy to anyone. Call us for a free consultation and test our bankruptcy knowledge. We can't say we have seen it all, but if one of those rare occasions arise when we don't readily have the answer, we will research the issue and track down the answer for you.


    We are from here and know the struggles of living in this area with its harsh winters, cyclical droughts, declining coal industry, fire ravished forests, and the boom and bust of oil and gas.

    However, we cannot focus on the bad, but must work for a better future with time to enjoy what Montana and Wyoming have to offer: driving the unbelievable Beartooth Highway, watched the sun set from the Rimrock above Billings, eating bread at Wheat Montana in Three Forks, landing a 10 lbs trout, panning for gold at South Pass or hiking the vast public lands that cover this area.


    We ae a full service bankruptcy law firm preparing clients for bankruptcy, filing the bankruptcy and seeing it through until completion, but it is one of our core values to educate our clients. We will:

  • Explain the bankruptcy process.
  • Identify any challenges that might befall the client.
  • Insure the client is aware of all options (both inside and outside of bankruptcy).
  • Let the client make the decisions along the way.
