The Navajo Nation Washington Office has a new government and legislative affairs associate who will focus on education and public safety, Brian Quint.
“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 in a news release.
This isn’t his first gig working for the Navajo Nation though. He previously was an attorney at the Navajo Nation Office of Legislative Counsel where he provided legal services to the Navajo Nation Council. Before that he spent four years as an attorney at DNA-Peoples’ Legal Services at the Hopi/Kearns Canyon and Tuba City, Arizona offices.
Quint is from southwest Michigan, and obtained his Juris Doctor from the Michigan State University College of Law and his bachelor’s in international relations from Michigan State University (MSU). At MSU he focused his studies on federal Indian law and participated in the Indigenous Law and Policy Center.
