The well-being of Native children is a critical priority for our tribal clients. The firm advises and represents Indian tribes in matters affecting Indian children such as dependency, delinquency, and probate proceedings subject to the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), legislation affecting the rights of Indian tribes and children, and intergovernmental task forces and workgroups designed to reinforce the role of tribes and tribal communities in children’s lives. We also assist our clients in creating tribal court systems to address these disputes, and litigation involving the application, interpretation, and enforcement of the Indian Child Welfare Act. The firm’s attorneys regularly appear in tribal court proceedings on ICWA matters.
