Justice Division

The justice division is not able to provide legal advice to individual citizens for personal matters. Please see the resources listed below for personal legal assistance.

The justice division provides legal support to the Chickasaw Nation Executive Branch and its departments. In addition, the justice division prosecutes criminal and civil matters brought on behalf of the Chickasaw Nation in the Chickasaw Nation District Court, and performs probation case management for adult and juvenile offenders.

As full-time legal counsel for the Chickasaw Nation, the justice division does not offer legal services to individual Chickasaws. Citizens in need of legal advice for personal matters may contact the Oklahoma Indian Legal Services, Inc.
