Court Systems is different
Arizona’s 21 Indian Reservations each have their own Tribal Court System. The larger tribes have very structured and formal systems, while the smallest tribes may only have an informal and even part time Tribal Court System.

Understanding how the Tribal Court Systems work is as important as knowing the Tribal Laws

Just as each of the tribes has a different set of laws that lawyers need to understand, an effective Indian Law attorney must recognize the individual tribal court system’s idiosyncrasies in order to be effective.

Attorney Brian Utsey focuses his practice on American Indian Law in Arizona and he’s gained a lot of unique knowledge about the laws and the systems here.
