James D. Leach Law Office

I handle "Bad Men Among the Whites" claims for tribal members whose tribes have those clauses in their treaties of 1867 or 1868. This includes the Navajo, Lakota, Kiowa, Comanche, Cheyene, Arapahoe, Ute, Crow, Northern Cheyenne, Northern Arapahoe, Eastern Band of Shoshone, and Bannock. I won a major precedent in favor of these claims in the Court of Federal Appeals in 2012, Richard v. United States. If you are not familiar with these claims, I can provide more information, or you could look at the law review article I wrote about them, "'Bad Man Among the Whites' Claims After Richard v. United States," which was published in the law review of the New Mexico School of Law, Fall 2013 edition.
