"During the fifteen years that Sharon worked with our Tribe, she became familiar with most every major issue affecting a modern day Tribe. She confronted and helped to resolve problems for the Stockbridge-Munsee Tribe ranging from threats to tribal historical and cultural sites in our homeland in the Hudson River Valley to attacks on sovereignty from the county and state level. She tackled complex eligibility issues related to the Indian Health Services' unique interpretation of federal law as well as challenges to the Tribes enrollment process pursuant to its Constitution and Membership Ordinance. She helped to establish the Tribal Court and was instrumental in facilitating the only amendment the Tribe has ever successfully implemented to its 1937 IRA Constitution. She handled the Tribes housing transition under NHASDA, dissolving the existing housing authority and establishing the new tribally designated entity, the Division of Community Housing, organized as a program under the tribal government. She put into place some fundamental processes that will continue to protect the Tribe into the future, including the process for drafting, reviewing, signing and filing contracts.
Sharon understands the interworking of tribal governments and she respects tribal sovereignty. "
"Having brought my business to completion, I would like to express I am very satisfied with the results and the manner in which Sharon has cared for my needs.
She has been very kind and professional and has given me the time and attention I felt I needed in explaining and answering my questions. She executed a resolution to my case that exceeded my expectations, for which I am grateful.
I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone who would have need of her fields of expertise."
"After my term as President, I continued as a Tribal Council member for several terms, and then worked in other management positions with the Tribe, including Tribal Executive. In all of my positions, I continued to consult with Sharon on various legal and policy matters. We worked together on the Constitutional Revision Committee and on a committee dedicated to drafting an ethics code for the tribal government and its employees. I consulted with her often in employment situations. I relied on Sharon's legal expertise in many matters, including her negotiation of contracts as the Tribe moved forward in its growth and development of relationships with outside vendors and businesses. Sharon was always able to interpret situations from a legal standpoint that was of great assistance to me as a lay person.
In all of the above matters Sharon was very diligent and ethical in her work. She is a person who can be relied on to put her best into whatever she does."
"Green-Gretzinger law office was able to turn our seemingly impossible case into a victory. Their hard work, especially the dedication to our case, made it possible for our lives to continue back to normal. I highly recommend their services for anything property related as well as many other services they provide. Professionalism at its finest."
"I've worked with Sharon for years on many projects ranging in size. She is knowledgeable and very thorough on all the projects she has been involved with. Sharon is a pleasure to talk with and I recommend her."
