Osage Indian Litigation Passionately Fighting for Your Rights

Tribal Cases We Handle

There is a range of legal cases that can be filed in Indian tribal court, which is distinct from Oklahoma and federal courts. Shoemake Law Firm, PLLC can help you with Indian litigation concerning several legal disputes, including:

  • Personal injury – if you have been sued for liability or have been injured in Osage Nation, your case may go through tribal court
  • Indian Child Welfare Acts (ICWA) – these rules concern the removal of tribal children for their own welfare, depending on the health and stability of their family
  • Criminal offenses – traffic violations, misdemeanor crimes, simple drug possession can be convicted on tribal lands
  • Family law – divorce, paternity, child custody, adoption may all be subject to tribal jurisdiction, as well as state court, depending on the situation

An experienced Indian litigation attorney can better help you evaluate whether your case will be heard in tribal court or state court. Shoemake Law Firm, PLLC has extensive experience practicing in both the Oklahoma court system and the tribal court system, so the firm is well-prepared to handle your tribal legal dispute. Not every lawyer has a deep knowledge about Indian litigation, so it is best to work with an Oklahoma local who does.
