State law requires the Office of the County Attorney to represent the interests of the Board of County Commissioners. Upon approval by the Board of County Commissioners, the County Attorney's Office also represents the County's various administrative departments, appointed advisory boards, and other elected or appointed officials when those interests are compatible with those of the County.

State law mandates the County Attorney's Office to represent the People of the State of Colorado in certain social services/human services and mental health proceedings.
