LeVangie Law Group

Native American Law

Whether the issue is tribal membership qualification, the role of the Department of Interior in the approval of tribal ordinances, tribal election oversight, land in trust for landed and landless tribes, tribal recognition, Indian gaming, or off reservation business activity, LLG delivers culturally relevant and effective representation and advice to its Native American and non-tribal clients.

LLG provides representation of tribes before all federal agencies, in arbitration, in tribal courts and before State and Federal courts. We regularly track legislative proposals that could affect our clients. When proposed legislation is detrimental to our clients’ interests, we develop strategies to address it and we prepare and distribute summaries on major legislative proposals.

Our understanding of the issues that face Native American leaders and those who wish to work with them to develop additional resources for Native American tribes distinguishes us from other legal practices and makes us a valuable ally when working on complex negotiations.

American Indian tribes generate vibrant commercial activity and development. The interplay of federal, state, and tribal law create unique opportunities, and challenges, for investors. Legal sophistication is critical for non-tribal companies and Native American tribes interested in working as development partners.Our practice combines deep knowledge, experience, and respect for tribal law and customs with broad understanding of the federal and state legislation and judicial decisions impacting Native American communities.
