With the Delta variant surging, Denver has issued new public health orders requiring pre-K through 12th-grade students to wear masks at school and requiring city employees and some private-sector workers in high-risk settings to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The Denver City’s Attorney’s Office is one of the largest law firms in Colorado, with more than 120 attorneys and approximately 100 staff members comprised of paralegals, victim advocates, and other support and supervisory staff members. The office is comprised of seven sections that each play a crucial role in daily operations.
We manage the day-to-day functions at the City Attorney’s Office. Our staff include the Director of Administration, legal administrators, staff assistants and the Public Information Officer.
The Civil Litigation Section represents the City, City officials, and City employees in a variety of lawsuits, including torts and civil rights actions.
We are the in-house legal department for Denver International Airport (DEN).
The Employment & Labor Law Section represents the City in all employment-related legal matters.
The attorneys of the Human Services Section dedicate their careers to strengthening our community through support of our most vulnerable populations, including at-risk children and adults.
We draft the laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations for the City’s elected officials and each City agency and department. We negotiate and draft all contracts between the City and all outside entities.
We prosecute municipal crimes and traffic offenses and help crime victims safely navigate the criminal justice system.
