Fiscal Court Advice

The Pendleton County Attorney serves as legal advisor to the Fiscal Court and the elected county officials. Our office either drafts or reviews all legal documents on behalf of the County. We also review all claims and bills submitted to the County for payment. It is our responsibility to ensure that the claims are in order and may lawfully be paid out of the County treasury. In the event legal action is taken against the County or its elected officials in their official capacity, the office participates in the defense of those claims. It is our goal to provide experienced and competent legal counsel to our elected officials.
