The City Attorney’s Office is responsible for providing legal advice and representation to the City Council, Boards and Commissions, and all City officers and employees. We also handle the City’s civil and criminal litigation. Our office is staffed by seven attorneys, an office administrator, two paralegals and two legal secretaries.
We are part of the City team. It is our duty to provide competent, helpful, timely, cost-effective and independent legal representation.
