Litigation Team

The Civil Rights, Tort, and Employment Litigation Team defends the County in lawsuits filed against the County, its officials, and/or its employees.  The Team’s docket includes a wide variety of cases, including tort, employment, civil rights, medical malpractice, and dangerous condition of public property actions to name a few.  Our experienced litigators handle all phases of litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts.  Additionally, our litigators represent all County departments and have developed expertise in the work of each department to provide advice and training on risk management issues to improve policies, practices, and to minimize legal exposure to the County.
