Legal Department Mission

The Vision of the City Attorney’s Office is Iustitia Omnibus.
To provide quality legal advice and counsel to our clients with integrity whilst seeking justice for all.

The Mission of the City Attorney's Office is to ensure the protection of clients and citizens by being responsive and understanding impacts of decisions to accomplish fair results.

Conflict of Interest Statement:
To avoid conflicts of interest and to reserve its attorneys for the representation of the city, our office does not provide legal opinions on private matters which do not involve the City of Tyler or an officer, agent or employee of the City of Tyler acting in their official capacity. The attorneys of our office do not represent private parties in civil or criminal matters. Our office cannot refer you to any specific attorneys or endorse any attorney in private practice; however, if you are in need of legal representation for a private matter you may call Lone Star Legal Aid at 1-800-248-0048, or you may contact East Texas Legal Services at (903)595-4781.
