Mission Statement

The Stockbridge-Munsee Legal Department's primary mission is to represent and protect the Tribe, its assets, enterprises, and its interests.  Whether reviewing contracts, enforcing Tribal Ordinances, or enforcing defaulted loans, the Legal Department is here to provide assistance to the Tribal Council and tribal government programs, businesses and committees.  The Legal Office views its responsibility as going beyond merely dealing with legal problems as they arise. Its philosophy has always been to assist the Tribe in preventing legal problems in the first instance by providing timely counsel and by closely reviewing and monitoring all contracts.  The Legal Department follows the movements of the State and Federal Governments Legislators, their legislation, decisions, rulings, and relevant appropriate court decisions cases, to determine any how this will effect on the Tribe/Community.  Three full time Attorneys and one Secretary/Assistant currently staff the Legal Department.
