For Immediate Release

NNWO Staff Member Brian Quint

Washington, DC—The Navajo Nation Washington Office welcomed a new staff member to its growing team last week. Brian Quint joins the NNWO as a government & legislative affairs associate and will focus on education and public safety issues.

"Brian brings a keen knowledge of Navajo legal processes to our team and we are excited to bring him on board," said NNWO Executive Director Clara Pratte.

Prior to joining the NNWO, Quint was as an attorney at the Navajo Nation Office of Legislative Counsel where advised and provided legal services to the Navajo Nation Council and its Standing Committees including the Judiciary, Economic Development, and Education Committees during the 21st Navajo Nation Council; and the Health, Education and Human Services, and Law and Order Committees during the current Navajo Nation Council.

Prior to his work at the Office of Legislative Counsel, he spent four years working for DNA-Peoples’ Legal Services, Inc. as a Managing Attorney at the Hopi/Keams Canyon and Tuba City Offices, providing legal services and representation to low-income and vulnerable populations.  He is licensed to practice law in Arizona, the Navajo Nation, and before the Hopi Tribal Courts.

Originally from southwest Michigan, Brian obtained his Juris Doctor from the Michigan State University College of Law, and his Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from Michigan State University.  While a student there, he participated in the Indigenous Law and Policy Center and focused his studies on federal Indian law.

"It is an honor to be given this opportunity to work on behalf of the people of the Navajo Nation," said Quint.
