The primary duty of the Civil Division is to provide legal assistance to the Board of Supervisors, the other boards, agencies and commissions within Carson City government and the many City departments.

The District Attorney is "The City's Lawyer," providing oral or written opinions and legal advice to all City departments and staff. The Civil Division attorneys are also assigned the duty of defending all lawsuits brought against the county, and all City officers and employees named in lawsuits.

The Civil Division also initiates lawsuits as attorney for the City in condemnation, nuisance abatement, criminal forfeitures, collection of debts owed the City, etc. The Civil Division staff drafts legal documents, including resolutions and ordinances upon request of the Board of Supervisors, department heads and other agencies. Virtually every formal action taken by the Board of Supervisors must be memorialized by either a resolution or city ordinance.
