About the Jacobson Law Group
For over 30 years, the Jacobson Law Group has provided outstanding, yet affordable, legal services to Indian tribes and their business partners. Rejecting a one-size-fits-all approach to Indian law, we identify and respond to the unique history, issues, and needs of each community with which we work. As a team, our Indian-law experience is unequaled, and we provide sophisticated legal services in a wide variety of Indian-law settings, from elaborate business transactions to complex litigation to day-to-day tribal governance. Half of our attorneys are members of federally recognized Indian tribes, and all of us have made Indian law the centerpiece of our careers.
