City Attorney's Office

Whom We Represent

The City Attorney's Office vigorously represents the City of Irving's interests and provides superior legal counsel.

The department provides representation on a case-by-case basis to the City of Irving and its officers and employees relating to official city business. Staff also provides services in Spanish. To determine whether the City Attorney's Office is counsel of record for a lawsuit or administrative proceeding, please check the pleadings on file for that matter. The pleadings are on file in the particular court or administrative agency where the matter is pending.

Legal Opinions

The office does not provide legal opinions on private matters that do not involve the City of Irving or an officer, employee or agent of the City of Irving acting in their official capacity to avoid conflicts of interest and to reserve its attorneys for the representation of the city. The department's attorneys do not represent private parties in civil or criminal matters.

Legal Representation

The office cannot refer a specific attorney or endorse any attorney in private practice; however, those in need of legal representation for a private matter may call the Dallas Bar Association at (214) 220-7444 or Legal Aid at (214) 748-1234 to obtain names for evaluation.
