Special Tribunals

Not all legal entanglements fall under the jurisdiction of the United States Federal or North Carolina State courts. Some matters are handled by governmental agencies or through special tribunals. These may include matters before Cherokee Tribal Court, the Department of Motor Vehicles, Western Carolina Student Judicial Hearings, as well as in matters related to workers’ compensation and social security disability.

Matters under the jurisdiction of a special tribunal may or may not also be subject to the rules governing civil and criminal procedure at either the state or federal level. Each different tribunal has its own special rules and regulations that must be adhered to if there is to be successful resolution of your matter. At Earwood, Moore, Carpenter & Guy, our attorneys are experienced in representing people in each of these special tribunals. We are dedicated to helping students, those who have lost their driving privilege, those who have criminal or civil matters before Cherokee Tribal Court, those injured on the job, and people with disabilities. We are a full service law firm dedicated to protecting your interests, wherever that representation needs to occur.

Call us today to schedule a consultation about your out-of-court legal matter. We will help you find the best solution and outcome possible for your matter.
