In each of Arizona’s fifteen counties, the County Attorney is elected to a four-year term by the voters from the county he/she represents. The County Attorney acts as the chief legal officer for the County, providing legal advice and representation to the County, its officers and political subdivisions. Thank you for visiting your County Attorney's web page. I hope you will find the information to be both informative and useful.
