Global Law Experts has named Galanda Broadman, Washington state's boutique firm, Gaming Law Firm of the Year. This distinction follows the firm’s prestigious Tier 1 ranking in the 2013 U.S. News & World Reports–Best Law Firms in the area of Native American Law.
As an Indian Country law firm, Galanda Broadman is dedicated to advancing tribal legal rights and Indian business interests. The Washington state based firm also has an office in Bend, Oregon.
For the eighth year in a row, Gabe Galanda, the firm’s partner, was just named one of the “Best Lawyers” in America in the practice area of Gaming Law and Native American Law. Best Lawyers, a peer review guide to the legal profession worldwide, has recognized Galanda each year since 2007. In a previous interview, Galanda told ICTMN that the award meant a lot to him. “This honor demonstrates that Indian Country has ascended to every echelon of corporate America in the year of Indian self-determination.”
Anthony Broadman, also a partner and the second name in the firm’s namesake, and Ryan Dreveskracht, a firm associate, were honored by Super Lawyers magazine for their achievements in 2013. Broadman was honored as a Washington “Super Lawyer” and Dreveskracht was selected as a 2013 “Rising Star.”

“We are proud to be a small American Indian-owned law firm, listed amongst hundreds of the largest and most prominent law firms in America, and the world,” said Galanda, an enrolled member of the Round Valley Indian Tribes of California, to ICTMN. “Indeed, there is no professional mountain that Indian people cannot climb today.”
