The County Attorney is the Chief Legal Officer of the County and as such, may not provide private legal advice to individual citizens, but is instead responsible for protecting the legal rights of the "general" public.

Due to inherent conflicts of interest, our office is prohibited from meeting with individual constituents concerning legal issues. If you are having issues with a department you may contact an Assistant County Administrator or County Administrator, or ask the department to set up a meeting with our office, (that meeting would be at the discretion of the department head).

The County Attorney and his staff serve as counsel to the County Commissioners, Planning and Zoning Commission, Contractor’s Licensing Board, Supervisor of Elections, Property Appraiser, Clerk of Circuit Court, Tax Collector, and all County Departments.

The legal representation includes general legal counsel, litigation avoidance strategies, and litigation.

Note : Contact the custodian of record to obtain copies of county documents.

If you elect to use e-mail to correspond and a response is not received within one week, please contact the office directly.
