The County Attorney’s Office is divided into Operations and Human Services and handles administration of the Jefferson County Board of Equalization (JBOE).
The Operations Section provides legal advice and representation to the Board of County Commissioners, Elected Officials, County Departments and appointed committees, and Boards and Commissions, as authorized by the Board of County Commissioners.
The Operations Section handles a variety of general civil litigation matters and prosecutes zoning violations. Operations also handles transactional matters including real estate, land use, contracts and finance.
The Human Services Section provides advice, training and representation to the Department of Human Services in the areas of adult and child protection, child support enforcement and public assistance appellate issues. The Human Services section also handles cases involving mental health, legal disabilities and drug and alcohol commitments.
The Jefferson County Board of Equalization administers property tax abatement petitions. JCBOE hires hearing officers to hear appeals of property valuation and classification by the Assessor and appeals of determination of eligibility by the Assessor for the Qualifying Senior and Disabled Veteran Property Tax Exemptions. The Board of County Commissioners sits as the JCBOE.
The County Attorney's Office is not allowed to give legal advice to the public.
