The Office of the County Counsel has a diverse public law practice. Paralegals and legal secretaries work closely with a team of professionals, handling legal matters in many different areas, including litigation defense, conservatorships, juvenile dependency, and hospital law, where some of the heaviest case loads are evident.
We offer a friendly, professional environment and the opportunity to work in a public law office doing work which has an impact on the community and the lives of our most vulnerable citizens.
The County Counsel is always interested in discussing opportunities for paralegals, legal secretaries, and other clerical staff. We also offer a limited number of volunteer paralegal internships for class credit or work experience.
