The Civil Division of the Summit County Prosecutor's Office is essentially the county's law firm. The attorneys in this division provide legal counsel to all county agencies and elected officials in state or federal courts, as well as a variety of administrative settings.
This division is also vested with the task of providing written legal opinions upon the request of any one of these clients. Additional representation both inside and outside the courtroom setting is performed in the areas of employment litigation, civil rights litigation, personal injury litigation, contract review and enforcement, tax recoupment, real property sale and/or purchase, and land use and zoning issues.
We also assume a significant and proactive role in providing legal counsel regarding the implementation and enforcement of a wide variety of programs and policies administered throughout the county.
