Mission of City Attorney:  To professionally, effectively and efficiently provide quality legal service to and for the City of Sumner.

The City Attorney acts as the legal advisor for the Mayor, City Administrator, Councilmembers and all officers and officials of the City. The City Attorney drafts ordinances, resolutions and contracts, advises as to the legality of such documents and actions, furnishes written opinions on all matters relating to the affairs of the City and represents the City in all matters of litigation.

The City Attorney does not represent the individual citizens of the City in private matters such as criminal defense, landlord/tenant issues, private property issues, recovery of loaned money, divorce issues, recovery of wages from an employer, or child custody issues. For these types of matters, please contact and consult a private attorney.

The City Attorney’s office provides court and procedural information, support and referral information to domestic violence victims and assists with other needs citizens require.
