Welcome to the City Attorney site at the City of Berkeley, CA.

The City Attorney's Office provides legal support to City government. Our client is the City of Berkeley, speaking through the City Council. Our mission is to ensure that the City conducts its affairs in a manner that complies with law, and to minimize its liability. The City Attorney determines the merits of claims and defends against suits filed, while also filing suits on behalf of the City. The City Attorney's office advises the City Council and City departments, and represents the City in lawsuits where the City is a party. We do not provide legal advice to private citizens, nor do we handle criminal matters.
