Day-to-Day Support in all Legal Issues Affecting a Tribal Council

Not all law firms can claim the experience and knowledge we offer our clients. Our founder, Calvin J. Lee, has extensive experience in tribal, state and federal law matters, and can provide the legal support needed for a wide scope of legal issues.

We can help with issues such as drafting Tribal Ordinances, dealing with matters associated with the IRS and taxation, consulting with Congress and other federal agency personnel, working with lobbyists, and keeping the council safe by staying current with any changes in federal or state law, as well as recent case law that could have an impact on a decision.


Legal Counsel to Protect the Tribe’s Interests

Tribal council members carry a burdensome responsibility, with many potential problems. When serving as counsel, we can provide the qualified advice that protects against future litigation, as well as representing the council in negotiating and drafting contracts. Our goal is to protect the rights and interests of the council, and the tribe in general.

Whether you are dealing with Tribal Constitutional issues, or are involved in negotiating the most favorable terms for a contract that will bring greater viability to the community, we can help. We support the council in efforts to establish new enterprises, and to manage existing business relationships with sanity, with an eye to protecting against any problems associated with federal, state or tribal law that could potentially arise in the future.
