New Legal Help for Passamaquoddy Juveniles and Young Adults

Pine Tree Legal's Native American Unit has received a federal grant to provide legal help to Indians under the age of 25. This work will cover criminal and delinquency cases in the Passamaquoddy Tribal Court at Indian Township and Pleasant Point. We can also help with other legal problems related to criminal charges. Examples could be:

  • Loss of housing
  • Loss of employment
  • Loss of education, and
  • Other problems caused by criminal convictions or court appearances
  • Race discrimination
  • Misconduct by police or jails
  • Problems in juvenile detention facilities
