Much of my broad range of legal experience involves the prevention and resolution of complex, high-profile, high-stakes disputes on behalf of both private parties and governmental agencies.

It includes state and federal litigation and negotiated resolution of issues pertaining to business, land use, construction, real property, and environmental concerns

As part of that work,  I currently represent three northern California tribes and a tribal consortium health clinic. A substantial part of my work for them is devoted to assertion and protection of tribal sovereignty, internal self-governance and regulation, and entry into intergovernmental agreements of many different types.
