Representing Native Communities In American Indian Law Cases
In Oklahoma and throughout the nation, federal law recognizes that native communities are sovereign. However, your sovereignty may conflict with the interests of local, state or federal governments. You may also face other legal challenges concerning your own government or business.
At Talley, Turner, Stice & Bertman, we understand that your unique rights are worth respecting and protecting. We advise and represent tribal governments and tribal agencies. Our experience in Native American law allows us to develop innovative strategies to solve the various problems you may face.

Resolving Disputes With The U.S. Government
Your legal rights originate in a rich and tragic history. We will work hard to hold the United States accountable for its responsibilities to native communities.
Land is often at the forefront of disputes between tribes and the U.S. We understand how critical it is to protect not only the boundaries of your land but also the natural resources and ecosystem within it. Reservations may suffer the consequences of nearby mining operations, manufacturing or other problems because of American companies or government interference.
Whether your case concerns land, human rights or another issue, our lawyers are committed to getting justice for you. We work to enforce treaty-based and statutory commitments. If you suffer damages, we will seek compensation and pursue preventative actions.
