Does the City Attorney’s Office provide free legal advice to citizens?

No.  The City Attorney cannot give advice in any private legal matter.  Private legal matters must be handled by a private attorney.  The City Attorney’s Office represents the Mayor, the City Council and the City’s Advisory Boards.  If you need help locating an attorney, you may contact the Florida Bar and access their Lawyer Referral Service for consumers at www.floridabar.org or via phone – 1-800-342-8011, Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:30 p.m.
