Mark Reeves focuses his practice on trial and appellate litigation, predominantly on behalf of Indian tribes. He has represented and advised tribes in a broad range of litigation in federal, state, and tribal courts and before federal administrative agencies, including a number of cases before federal appellate courts and the Interior Board of Indian Appeals. Mr. Reeves has significant experience litigating issues relating to tribal sovereignty and immunity, the acquisition, development, and protection of tribal land and water rights, the taxation of Indian lands and property, litigation over easements, rights-of-way, and trespasses on Indian lands, the application of federal and state laws to Indian tribes and tribal enterprises, and the enforcement of the United States’ trust responsibilities to tribes.

Mr. Reeves has also assisted and advised tribes in numerous non-litigation contexts, including fee-into-trust land acquisitions, right-of-way and easement negotiations, the negotiation of self-governance compacts and funding agreements, the acquisition of Johnson O’Malley Act funds for Indian education programs, and the drafting, interpretation, and application of tribal legal codes.

In addition to his work on behalf of Native American clients, Mr. Reeves has substantial experience in medical malpractice defense litigation and in representing businesses in civil litigation, including products liability work and commercial contract disputes. He also has represented numerous individual plaintiffs who were victims of catastrophic injuries.

Mr. Reeves was recognized in 2020 and 2021 by The Best Lawyers in America® for Native American Law. He was recognized by the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce as a “Top 10 in 10 Young Professional” in 2014. He was also recognized as a Georgia “Rising Star” in the area of Native American Law by Super Lawyers magazine each year from 2015-2018 and included on Benchmark Litigation’s “40 & Under Hot List” for Appellate and Native American Law in 2018.
