Courtrooms and lawsuits are often seen as the conventional hallmarks of the lawyer and a law firm. Berkey Williams LLP believes that litigation is frequently the least effective way of solving problems, as it often leaves in the hands of others (judges or juries) the authority to render a decision. But the firm’s significant litigation experience allows Berkey Williams LLP to use litigation as an essential tool in campaigns to secure relief and protection for its tribal clients where advisable. Such campaigns often are wide-ranging and include, alongside litigation, public education, planned use of the public media, political and legislative approaches, and negotiation. Together, the firm’s attorneys have decades of experience in tribal, federal, and state courtrooms throughout the country, including all levels from trial courts through the courts of appeal and supreme courts.
