  Office of the City Attorney

Mission / Role / Philosophy

     The City of Chula Vista Attorney's Office serves as legal counsel to the City Council, all City Boards and Commissions, the City Manager, City Clerk and all City Departments. The Office's primary responsibility is to provide these clients with the legal services they need to develop and implement City policy and to deliver City services in a lawful and efficient manner.

     The City Attorney's Office is staffed with eight full-time attorneys and four administrative assistants. From time to time the City Attorney also engages outside counsel to assist with litigation and/or specialty law issues. Volunteer legal interns also provide valuable support.

     In accordance with a June, 2008 voter approved City Charter amendment, the City Attorney position was changed from a City Council appointed position to an elected position. The City's first elected City Attorney was sworn in December 2010. Notwithstanding this change, the City Attorney's primary function remains the same: to act as the City's general counsel on all legal matters.
