City Attorney

Mission Statement

It is the City Attorney’s mission to fulfill the requirements of the City Charter as charged and provide the best possible legal advice and perform such professional duties as may be required by law or the City Council, as well as advise and assist the City Management Team, in order to ensure the protection of the public’s interest.

Legal Assistance for Citizens

Due to the professional and ethical rules governing government attorneys, the Office of the City Attorney is limited to legal representation of the City of Vero Beach municipal corporation and cannot represent citizens in legal matters or provide legal advice to the public. If you need legal representation or assistance, please contact a private attorney of your choice. If you do not have an attorney, here are some resources to assist you:
