Native American Issues
Federal, state, and private attorneys rely on HRA to help them understand the deep historical roots of present-day legal issues involving American Indian tribes. We provide archival research, document management, report preparation, and expert witness testimony.

HRA helps clients identify companies, government agencies, and other entities that may be responsible for the cleanup of Superfund and other contaminated sites.
