The Civil Division provides legal advice and representation, in court and otherwise, to all County departments and other agencies which the Prosecutor is statutorily obligated to represent. This includes approximately 30 separate elected officials, departments, and agencies, as well as serving as legal counsel for eight townships and five public libraries.

This representation includes providing legal advice on matters such as personnel issues, public records, open meetings, and land use, and the review and/or drafting of hundreds of contracts. All contracts, performance bonds, and miscellaneous other documents must be approved by the Prosecutor's Office before the County Commissioners and Auditor will execute them.
