Betting on Their Future

Michael Taylor doesn’t dress the part of one of the most innovative and sought-after lawyers in Washington state.

There’s no natty power suit, no shiny wing tips, no calfskin briefcase. There’s just a middle-aged guy in khakis and an ’80s-style knit tie worn under a lightweight ski jacket.

Nor does Taylor’s office look much like he’s the head lawyer for the increasingly economically powerful Tulalip tribes (pronounced Tu-lay-lip), with whom he’s worked for the past 13 years of his 35-year association with American Indian tribes.

He does the tribes’ legal business out of a converted baseball shed on the edge of the parking lot near the tribal council building. The office, modestly described as ramshackle, has the decor of a bachelor pad and the smell of cedar, leather and old coffee.
