Covid-19 Pandemic

CILS is closely monitoring the ever-changing work restrictions and recommendations from public health officials on the COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority is the protection of our staff, their families, and our clients.

Read our Weekly COVID-19 News Brief on our COVID page for important updates and information.

CILS has instituted a program-wide policy requesting all CILS staff to work remotely from home and have closed all offices to the public. We will continue to accept and return calls from new and existing clients. Attorney staff will ensure their clients’ legal interests are protected and keep them updated on any and all information relevant to their case.

CILS is committed to being here for our tribal communities and tribes. If you have questions, concerns, or need additional information on the status of CILS or the COVID-19 pandemic, please call the CILS office closest to your location or the Principal Office at 760-746-8941. We will return your call as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe.

Our mission is to protect and advance Indian rights, foster Indian self-determination, and facilitate tribal nation-building. CILS offers representation in cases that involve issues unique to Native Americans.
