Our Commitment and Experience

After the decision in McGIRT v. OKLAHOMA, many attorneys began a tribal practice. Wagner and Lynch were already there. We have extensive practice history and knowledge in most areas of tribal law including felony, misdemeanors (including DUI), juvenile deprivation, juvenile delinquent, divorce, adoption, guardianship, and civil cases. Additionally, we have done appellate and Constitutional work in tribal courts.

We are passionate about defending the rights of tribal members from ALL government overreach. We also know that every family and civil case matters, no matter how large or small the issue. Having an attorney with experience and knowledge of the tribal code is VITAL to your success in court.

Reach out to Wagner & Lynch today for a consultation. We’ll uphold your rights and guide you through Chocktaw Nation legal matters toward a positive resolution. Take the first step now!

How Wagner and Lynch Can Help

The Choctaw Nation is one of the largest tribes with a population of over 200,000. The physical boundaries of the Choctaw Nation include the whole or parts of the following counties in Oklahoma: Atoka, Bryan, Choctaw, Coal, Haskell, Hughes, Latimer, LeFlore, McCurtain, Pittsburg, and Pushmataha. Although the Tribal Court center is in Durant, some matters are still held at the Choctaw Courthouse in Talihina. If you are a member of a recognized Indian Tribe and have been charged with a crime in any of these counties, you should consult with Wagner and Lynch to determine if your case should be in the Choctaw Nation Tribal Court. You can look at an accurate and interactive map of the boundaries of the Choctaw Nation here.

The Choctaw Nation has a website for their court system which includes links to their tribal code, case lookup, directions to the courthouse, and lots of other useful information here.
