Defending Criminal Cases in Tribal Court: SALA is committed to ensuring strong criminal justice systems on Arizona’s Native American Reservations that promote liberty, individual rights, and due process of law. SALA may provide defender services to eligible clients in certain tribal courts. Contact SALA’s local tribal office to learn more.
SALA’s ability to provide legal assistance in the areas listed above is subject to change based on the availability of staff and volunteers. While an applicant may be financially eligible for SALA’s services, SALA reserves the right to deny or limit services based on program resources and program priorities.
SALA assists people with civil legal problems only, and does not provide assistance with criminal matters in Arizona’s state court. For assistance with a criminal matter in state court, please contact the Pima County Public Defender’s office, the Pima County Bar Association or the public defender or bar association near you. If you or the legal problem is outside of SALA’s nine county service area, visit www.azlawhelp.org to find the local Arizona legal aid provider.
