What Types of Issues Can a Native Peoples Attorney Help With?

 

Indigenous Peoples attorneys handle a wide variety of issues. Many Native Peoples lawyers work for a particular tribe, or in states where there are many Native American Indian reservations. 

 

Typically, a Native Peoples lawyer may help an indigenous person find work or access healthcare and education services; they also assist people who want to claim tribal membership or change their tribe designation. A lot of their work is jurisdictional, helping to determine exactly which laws apply to which situations. Many Native American Indian attorneys also work to assist native peoples in setting up businesses, or in assisting non-native people who need to interact with the complex tribal rules governing a reservation. 

 

Some major Native Peoples law firms specialize in working with tribes who are seeking to protect their land rights and their natural resources, or that need advice on tribal governance matters. The complexities around Indian Gaming law are another major area of work for Indigenous Peoples attorneys, as is environmental litigation. Tribal sovereignty issues and labor and employment matters on tribal lands are also important areas handled by specialist Native Peoples attorneys.

 

Many Native Peoples attorneys are themselves American Indian or otherwise indigenous, but not all are. However, all First Peoples attorneys are specialists in understanding this unique area of law and are the first port of call for both natives and non-natives when a legal issue concerning Native American law arises. 

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Native Peoples Lawyer?

 

Most Indigenous Peoples attorneys charge an hourly rate for their work, but the rate will vary a great deal according to location and the nature and complexity of the case concerned.

 

If the case in question is in the public interest - a civil rights matter for example - you may be able to find an Indian Law firm that will represent you pro bono, ie free of charge. 

 

Before hiring a Native Peoples law firm, be sure to check that you understand how much you are likely to need to pay, and when.

 

Tips for Hiring a Native American Law Attorney

Because this is such a complex area of law, don’t just go for the first Indigenous Peoples law firm you stumble across!

Ideally, choose a Native Peoples lawyer who is from the relevant tribe themselves, or at the very least who has a strong understanding of that tribe’s culture, laws, and practices. If you are a tribal member yourself, seek advice from your community regarding Native Peoples attorneys they have successfully worked with in the past.

Secondly, opt for an Indigenous Peoples law firm that has experience with the type of problem you are facing. If it is a business matter, for example, you may want to choose a Native Peoples business attorney rather than one who has mostly handled healthcare or educational matters.

Our State Bar Attorneys directory lists hundreds of Native Peoples lawyers, and it’s easy to narrow down your search for lawyers in your state or who specialize in your type of case.
