Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Law is to provide the County government and its agencies, boards and commissions with cost effective, quality representation in all matters requiring legal advice and review.  To diligently and fairly enforce the civil laws of the County, and to be responsible and proactive in providing legal services and advice to our clients.

Overview

The County Attorney is the agency director who manages and oversees all areas of operations and provides supervision and guidance to the staff. The Office of Law is comprised of four divisions:  Litigation, Contracts and Transactions, Government Operations, and Administration. Each division is supervised by a Deputy County Attorney.

The Litigation Division defends the County and its agencies, officials and employees against all lawsuits in both State and Federal courts. Types of cases include personal injury, motor vehicle torts, other tort claims, professional liability, employment discrimination, contract disputes, workers' compensation, collections, subrogation, and forfeitures.

The Contracts and Transactions Division reviews and drafts complex contracts and real estate transactions, and handles treasury and tax issues. 

The Government Operations Division handles administrative hearings, code enforcement cases, and provides representation to the Department of Social Services in Child in Need of Assistance and Termination of Parental Rights cases.

The Administration Division functions include: providing legal opinions and advice; reviewing and drafting legislation; responding to Maryland Public Information Act requests; and reviewing appointments to County boards and commissions.

The Office of Law does not advise or represent private citizens. If you are a private citizen seeking legal assistance, you may contact the Lawyer Referral Service at (301) 952-1440 or the Legal Aid Bureau at (301) 927-6800.
