Indian Law

FP&R is dedicated to the representation of American Indian tribes in the Pacific Northwest. We defend local tribes in many areas of litigation, including tort liability, premises liability, product liability, liquor liability, food-borne illness and wrongful death. In addition, we also defend cases involving employment law, wrongful termination, civil rights violations, and governmental affairs. We have the experience, ability and resources to provide effective and aggressive representation for our Native American clients in Tribal, State and Federal Courts. Our primary goal is to promote, protect and preserve tribal sovereignty, culture and customs, as well as tribal resources.

Representative clients include the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, Puyallup Tribe of Indians, Swinomish Tribe, Sauk-Suiattle Tribe, Snoqualmie Tribe, and Tulalip Tribes of Washington. We are also members of the Northwest Indian Bar Association.
