County Attorney

The County Attorney's Office provides legal counsel and advice in all civil matters to the Board of Supervisors and all other boards, commissions, and committees appointed by the Board of Supervisors, as well as County officials and the Emergency Communications Center. The Office provides services in areas such as land use and zoning, taxation and finance, law enforcement, social services, contracts, real estate, employment, legislation and litigation. The Office drafts ordinances and resolutions to implement policy decisions of the Board of Supervisors, prepares legislative proposals, represents the County in litigation, and enforces compliance with the Water Protection Ordinance, the Zoning Ordinance, and other County regulations.

The County Attorney's Office does not provide legal advice or opinions to citizens and cannot represent citizens in personal or private legal matters. If you need private representation, you may wish to consult your personal attorney or contact one of the following resources:
