The Maryland Association of County Civil Attorneys is representative of the chief legal officer for each county. In this
regard, the clients of a County Attorney include all county offices,
departments, boards, commissions, and agencies. They do not provide
legal advice for private citizens. Their office typically handles
virtually all civil litigation in which the county or its officers and
employees are involved. Their responsibilities may include issuing
advice and opinions on legal questions affecting the interests of the
county, such as zoning matters, personnel, environmental law, and
workers’ compensation; negotiating and preparing agreements or
contracts; acquiring and conveying title to real property; collecting
various county fees and charges; and drafting local and State
legislation for the County.
