We help with Workers' Compensation Matters

Most tribes do not operate their workers' compensation systems under state law.  Most choose to be self-administered under tribal law.  Most contract with Tribal First to administer claims.  You are probably looking  at this website because you received a letter from Tribal First denying your claim.  We can sometimes help turn that around in your favor.

Already Working With An Advocate?

 If you are already working with an advocate, but he or she is not licensed to practice under the tribe's jurisdictional laws, we can associate with your advocate and work together for your benefit.

Just Need to Know What The Law Is So You Can Represent Yourself?

We'll do the legal research for you.  We can also prepare the court documents for you and you can decide whether to attend hearings or trials without us by your side.  Our services are tailor-made to suit your style and your budget.
