The Tulalip Office of Civil Legal Aid (TOCLA) provides legal assistance to low income members of federally recognized tribes with civil matters at the Tulalip Tribal Court. TOCLA provides culturally sensitive competent representation in a holistic manner by collaborating with other tribal legal and social services to assist clients in identifying legal and non-legal needs, and address barriers in accessing services.
