City Attorney - Overview

It is the goal of the City Attorney’s Office to provide the highest quality legal representation and service possible to the City of Abilene and it is my honor to serve as the City’s chief legal advisor. As the City’s lawyers, the Office of the City Attorney engages in three major activities. First, we prosecute violations of the State’s laws and the City’s Code of Ordinances. Second, we provide legislative counsel by drafting and revising the City’s Code of Ordinances and advising the City Council and City Boards and Commissions. Third, we provide general legal counsel and representation to the City through drafting documents, advising City officials and managers on compliance with the law, representing the City in court, negotiating on the City’s behalf, and otherwise using legal procedures to support and defend the lawful decisions of City officials and agencies. We are proud to represent the City of Abilene in this capacity and render our services with strict adherence to professional standards and conduct. It is our hope you find this web site helpful and informative. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance.
