Our Mission

County Counsel provides most of the civil legal services required by the County. The County Counsel acts as legal advisor to the Board of Supervisors and the County Administrative Officer, gives written legal opinions to county officers and managers and officers of special districts and school districts; defends or prosecutes civil actions and proceedings in which the County or a county officer is concerned; and drafts and reviews proposed legislation, contracts, resolutions and other legal documents.

County Counsel provides a variety of effective legal services to the Board of Supervisors, county departments and officials thereof, and various boards and commissions, including representation in court actions of a civil nature, where appropriate.
