Law Department AttorneysConverse
The Law Department is led by the Corporation Counsel who is appointed by, and serves at the pleasure of, the Mayor. The office values a supportive work environment where dedicated public servants help each other develop the necessary skills to tackle complex legal issues.
Law Department attorneys draft and review local and State legislation, real estate leases, procurement contracts, and financial instruments for the sale of municipal bonds. The Department also provides legal counsel to City officials on a wide range of issues such as immigration, education, and environmental policy. There is rarely a major City initiative that is not molded by the Law Department’s staff.
