Native American Legal Aid Program

The Native American Legal Aid Program assists Puyallup Tribal Members, American Indians, Alaska Natives and First Nations People in Pierce County with a wide variety of civil legal issues, free of charge.

Free legal services available through this program include the ability to meet one-on-one with an attorney to confidentially discuss your legal issue, professional legal advice and/or representation and, where appropriate, referrals to other community resources.

We can assist in many different types of cases, including family law, domestic violence, housing, disability benefits, consumer issues, sealing criminal records and wills/estate issues.
