Troy A. Eid

Principal Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig, LLP

Troy A. Eid was Colorado’s 40th presidentially appointed United States Attorney from 2006-09 and co-chairs Greenberg Traurig’s American Indian Law Practice Group. He represents clients in governmental investigations and enforcement actions under federal, state and tribal law, with emphasis on environmental, energy, natural resource, and public ethics matters. Under President Obama, Troy was appointed and chaired the Indian Law and Order Commission, an independent national board advising the President and Congress on criminal justice and public safety improvements for all 567 federally recognized Native American and Alaska Native tribes and nations, from 2010-14. Many of the Commission’s recommendations, including recognition of tribes’ inherent criminal jurisdiction over non-Indians in domestic violence cases, have since been enacted into federal law by the Violence Against Women Act Amendments and other reforms. A recipient of the Navajo Nation Bar Association’s Member of the Year Award, Troy is currently a Commissioner on the Navajo Nation Commission for Judicial Conduct and teaches Native American Tribal Law and Federal Indian Law at both the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver-Sturm College of Law.
