Knowledge and Experience in Navigating Sovereign Nations

Handling legal matters in Indian Country requires extensive knowledge of how the Tribal Courts operate in comparison to State or Federal Courts. It is a matter of understanding Federal Indian Laws, tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction, and state law limitations and interactions within Indian Country. Indian Tribes have sovereignty which means the inherent right to govern themselves. Tribal sovereignty acts as a shield against state law on many levels. Many issues that come up in tribal law generally intersect with common non-Indian matters as well. It is helpful to know when you need to operate in Tribal Court, State Court, or Federal Court when it comes to handling your legal needs. The Boppre Law Firm team has studied tribal law to learn the differences of tribal, state, and federal laws and have the experience needed to negotiate and litigate in a wide variety of matters in Tribal Court.
