About Hobbs, Straus, Dean & Walker, LLP

For 35 years, Hobbs Straus has worked to help tribes realize positive change in Indian Country. We are committed to providing Indian and Alaska Native tribes and tribal organizations with the highest quality legal services and advocacy. And our extensive and unique experience allows us to understand the challenges tribal governments face in the context of Indian law’s past, present, and future.

The foundation of our practice is built on our recognition that tribes have an inherent right to self- government and matters related to tribal sovereignty permeate all practice areas. Promoting and defending tribal sovereignty is the backbone of our practice.

Since 1982, Hobbs Straus has represented tribal interests before federal, state and tribal governments. We have represented numerous tribal clients before tribal and federal courts, including a number of cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. We combine that insight with a thorough understanding of the complex issues surrounding local tribal law, tribal custom, and federal Indian law. In addition to tribal governments and tribal entities, our clients include national Indian organizations such as the National Congress of American Indians and Americans for Indian Opportunity as well as national and regional Indian organizations representing the education, housing, health, child welfare, and gaming interests of Indian tribes and Indian people.

Hobbs Straus is a national law firm with offices in Washington, DC, Portland, OR, Oklahoma City, OK, and Sacramento, CA.
