Q: How do I get a post storage hearing on my vehicle which was towed without notice on tribal land

I have been denied a post storage hearing on my vehicle which was towed and now seized on tribunal land. I am the owner I was not the driver. No crime was committed, the driver was parked at a lake in the reservation, game and fish ran his ID, he had warrants,was taken into custody, I later learned where my vehicle was, the tow company wanted over 250.00 at that time which I don't have, I asked for a post storage hearing,was denied by all depts there from law enforcement to tribal court, I asked within time allotted (10 days) even though I've received NO NOTICE BY MAIL FROM ANYONE according to statutes. Now I've had to file a 30day extension with DOT to find out what I can do to prevent them to gAin title when I was denied a fair hearing

A: This answer may vary depending on the state that you are in, but generally the state statutes have no effect on trust land. You need to look to the tribal code for your remedy. You may need to hire an attorney familiar with that tribal court.
