The County Counsels’ Association is comprised of public attorneys who provide legal advice and representation to California’s 58 counties and other units of local government. The legal services needs of each county are substantially similar. However, geographic separation of the County Counsels can create a duplication of effort with respect to their services. The Association serves to mitigate duplication and improve the cost effectiveness of each office by creating a strong communication system linking each County Counsel. The Association provides the opportunity for a stronger, more unified voice for the public lawyer in serving the needs of clients.
