Open by appointment

The Seattle City Attorney's Office is open to guests by appointment only. If you need to contact the City Attorney's Office, please call (206) 684-8200.

How do I...?

The lawyers of the City Attorney's Office advise City government and officials, rather than individuals. Individuals must retain their own lawyers for legal advice and representation.

We have assembled topics in this section to assist people unfamiliar with the court system and trial process as well as inform them about the legal resources at their disposal.

If you have a legal question or problem, you may speak to the Lawyer Referral Service at (206) 267-7010 or fill out their electronic form here.
