Improving Tribal Healthcare

Advocating for Tribal Healthcare Rights

Through negotiation, litigation, and policy advocacy, we help tribes assert their rights to healthcare resources, federal funding, and services. We also assist in developing tribal health programs, ensuring compliance with applicable laws, and preserving traditional healing practices within the modern healthcare framework.

Our team is experienced navigating the legal complexities of tribal healthcare, ensuring that tribal communities can overcome these barriers and receive the healthcare they deserve. Our attorneys have a strong background in the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA), the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA), and other relevant federal and tribal laws that impact Native American healthcare.

Strengthening Tribal-Government Partnership in Healthcare

Collaboration between tribal governments and federal agencies is essential for improving Native American Indian healthcare. Our firm facilitates productive partnerships between tribes and government entities to foster better healthcare outcomes.

We assist tribes in negotiating and drafting agreements with federal agencies, ensuring that tribal healthcare interests are protected. 

Ultimately, our aim is to empower tribal communities and support their self-determination in healthcare matters. By providing expert legal guidance and representation, we strive to enhance the capacity of tribes to shape their own healthcare systems and meet the unique needs of their members.

As an experienced leader in these types of lawsuits, we were confident the firm would have the expertise. However, what surprised us most was the high level of excellent customer service from the firm’s staff!

I can’t recommend this firm enough. They have an outstanding team that truly care for their clients…I have been awarded a fair six figure settlement.

When I say “they went to bat” for me…this Law Firm literally did just that. They persevered to bring the hard-nosed Manufacturer to settle and provide me some recompense for everything I had to endure which led to this suit.
