Simply put, this is one of the greatest places to live in the United States. The beauty of the mountains, foothills, and plains are gloriously evident in Douglas County. In 1861, the Colorado Territorial Session Laws created Douglas County, named after Stephen A. Douglas. Today, the county’s strength, as the centerpiece of the Denver/Colorado Springs development corridor, is a perfect blend of quality lifestyle and business environment.

The County Attorney serves as legal counsel to the Board of County Commissioners in addition to providing counsel and overseeing legal services to County elected officials, the County Manager, department and division heads, and appointed commissions, boards, and committees. With responsibility for managing the County Attorney’s office of 16 FTE and a budget of $2.6 million, the County Attorney has direct supervisory responsibility for 6 FTE. If you’re an experienced attorney and leader of people with a passion for public service and a track record for developing creative solutions to complex problems, this exceptional opportunity is for you.

The position requires a Juris Doctorate and ten (10) years of progressively responsible legal experience, including at least three years of local government legal experience. This could include private sector experience working in government relations or with government agencies. Three (3) years of high level supervisory or management experience overseeing attorneys is also required. Local government experience and experience advising governing boards is preferred, as is an active license to practice law in Colorado. Admission to practice law in the District of Colorado and the 10th Circuit is highly desirable.

Please submit a cover letter, résumé (showing size of staff and budgets managed and years and months of current and prior employment dates), and six work-related references online:
