The Union County Legal Department is an internal department consisting of a Senior Staff Attorney, Staff Attorney, and Legal Assistant. The purpose of the Legal Department is to provide day-to-day legal counsel to Union County's elected officials, management and department heads, through direct and ready access to full-time, in-house legal staff.
Primary duties of the department include the drafting or review of all County contracts; drafting of County resolutions, regulations, special legislation and ordinances; research into legal issues presented by the various departments; the drafting and review of legal documents; and attendance of all meetings of the Union County Board of Commissioners in the capacity of legal counsel.
The Legal Department does not provide legal advice to private citizens. If a private citizen has a legal question, whether regarding County business or otherwise, the citizen may wish to consider private legal representation.
