  • Represent and defend the state, county, and its officers in officially related cases.
  • Recover all monies (debts, fines, penalties, etc.) owing to the state or county.
  • Present all mental health commitment proceedings and all juvenile delinquency and child in need of assistance cases.

The Attorney DOES NOT

  • Give legal advice to or represent private groups or persons.
  • File lawsuits for private persons or defend them against lawsuits, including actions for dissolution of marriage.
