Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Law Department represents the City in all legal matters and litigation, provides legal advice and opinions to City departments and agencies, and is responsible for prosecuting violations of City ordinances in Municipal Court.

The position of City Attorney was established in 1875. The 1890 City Charter created the Law Department, headed by the Corporation Counsel. The title was changed to City Attorney in 1977. Seattle has been served by fifteen Corporation Counsels/City Attorneys since 1890, including A.C. Van Soelen (1930-1963), who held the position for 33 years.
