Native American Law

Between them, the two senior attorneys have upwards of twenty years combined legal experience handling Native American guardianships, divorces, paternities, custody and adoption of Native American children and a multitude of cases involving the probate, quiet title, determination of death and heirship, conveyance or partition of Restricted Indian Land or Trust Lands as well as the estate planning and will drafting specific to Native Americans and their Restricted or Trust Lands.
