Handling Cherokee Tribal Court Matters For The Eastern Band Of Cherokee Indians

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, located in Cherokee, North Carolina, is unique in that it has an independent set of laws that are not controlled by the state of North Carolina. While the Tribe has adopted some aspects of North Carolina law, there are many differences.

The Importance Of Hiring A Lawyer With Expertise In Tribal Matters

Trial procedural rules and penalties in criminal cases, for instance, are different from those in North Carolina state court. Also a Tribal Assistance District Attorney is often involved, working as both a prosecutor for Tribal Court as well as federal court.

Obtaining an attorney who can operate in both arenas seamlessly is vital, one who can provide you with a strategy that will meet your needs at each level.
