Our Mission is to effectively represent and promote the City's legal interests in order to actively assist the City in accomplishing its goals.
Our team of approximately 58 lawyers and 31 support staff delivers legal advice to the Mayor, City Council, boards and commissions, City management and all of the City's departments. Our lawyers perform a wide variety of legal services including prosecuting misdemeanor offenses, defending the City in civil lawsuits, and preparing the many agreements, legal documents, and ordinances needed in the City's numerous day-to-day transactions. The Office of the City Attorney is headed by the City Attorney and is comprised of six divisions. Each division has a deputy or chief supervising 7-12 lawyers. The City Attorney's Office assists the Ethics Review Board, and is responsible for issuing Ethics Advisory Opinions for City officials and employees. The City Attorney also provides training on various regulations such as Open Government and campaign finance. Records may be requested through the Open Records website.
