Mission: To provide superior legal services in a timely, effective, and efficient basis, and maintain the highest standards of professional integrity to Tribal Council and tribal programs.

The purpose of the Office of General Counsel is to bring more work “in-house” to assist Tribal Council and its many departments as an alternative to relying on outside counsel. The office does not handle legal issues for individual tribal members. The Office of General Counsel provides assistance with National Grid Service line agreements, refers members to private attorneys and provides notary services free of charge to the community.
