Can the city attorney advise citizens in legal matters?
No. The city attorney advises the mayor and City Council, city manager, and department heads in legal matters. The city attorney cannot provide legal advice to private citizens.


However, the following organizations in Solano County may be helpful to citizens in seeking legal representation and/or answers to general legal questions:

  • The Lawyer in the Library service is located in the John F. Kennedy Library at 505 Santa Clara Street in Vallejo, California. Local attorneys will offer free legal advice and referral the first and third Thursdays of each month from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Lawyers will meet with patrons for a maximum of 20 minutes in a private setting in the library. Practical advice about a legal problem often leads to a solution. If further help is needed, patrons will be referred to the appropriate library resource, agency, or attorney. For more information, please call (707) 553-5568.

  • Solano County Lawyer Referral Service is available by calling (707) 422-0127.

  • Solano County Legal Services of Northern California is available by calling (707) 643-0054.
