Can I get free legal advice from the County Counsel?
No. The County Counsel provides legal advice to the Board of Supervisors, elected officials, and County employees for matters related to the operation and management of the County government. The County Counsel and other attorneys in the office cannot provide legal advice to members of the public.

If you need a lawyer and do not have one, you can call the Lawyer Referral and Information Service, operated by the Contra Costa Bar Association, at (925) 825-5700.Click here for more information.
