Familiar With Cherokee Tribal Court And Indian Law

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has a separate system of laws and legal procedures than the state of North Carolina. At the Brent B. Smith Law Firm, I am dedicated to protecting the rights of people throughout Western North Carolina in both State Court and Tribal Court.

The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is autonomous and separate from the state and federal government — and while many of their laws are similar to North Carolina state laws, you may find the consequences for these crimes to be different under each system.

At my firm, I prioritize the personal needs of every case, building an aggressive defense that is unique to your situation. Consulting with an attorney who understands both State and Tribal law is invaluable to your case. You can trust me with the details, and I will answer any questions you have along the way.

Representing A Variety Of Crimes On The Reservation

While the laws and procedures are different between jurisdictions, the crimes themselves are mostly the same. As a trusted criminal defense lawyer, my firm can represent those accused of a crime whether it is in the North Carolina State Courts or the Cherokee Tribal Court.

I have fought in defense of many clients who have been charged with traffic violations and drug crimes, including cases involving marijuana and heroin possession. Some charges can have devastating effects on you and your family. Together, we can find a solution that will lead to the most favorable outcome possible, so you can go back to living your life.
