Can the Kennewick City Attorney’s Office provide me representation, legal advice, or a legal referral to help me in my civil dispute or family law matter?

No, the City Attorney’s Office attorney and staff are prohibited by ethical code from representing private clients in court and from dispensing advice or referring to a specific private attorney. You may check the phone book for a list of local attorneys. If you qualify for low-income representation, you may contact Benton-Franklin Legal Aid, Columbia Legal Services, or The Northwest Justice Project for potential assistance.
