The County Attorney and staff provide prompt, efficient and effective legal advice and representation to the Board of Commissioners, County Manager, County departments, and related agencies. Legal counsel is provided on all areas of local government, including contracts, civil procedure, litigation, constitutional law, open meetings, public records, purchasing, property tax assessment and collection, budget and financial procedures, and personnel matters. Because the County is self-funded for liability purposes, this office handles virtually all cases. This office serves two courthouses and a variety of clients in two major cities, High Point and Greensboro. The County Attorney’s Office represents and defends individual commissioners, officials, and all County-related employees in the absence of a conflict. The County Attorney’s Office does not handle Criminal cases including traffic citations, Civil cases and Small Claims cases in which Guilford County is neither the plaintiff nor the defendant. For information regarding these types of matters, please contact the Clerk of Superior Court’s office at (336) 412-7300.
