County Attorney

The county attorney is appointed by the Santa Rosa Board of County Commissioners and serves as its in-house chief legal counsel to the board in all legal matters. The attorney provides legal advice and representation to the board of commissioners, the county administrator, all county departments, and the boards and committees organized under the board of commissioners on matters related to their official responsibilities. Angela Jones has served as the Santa Rosa County Attorney since 2010.

The county attorney represents the commission in litigating claims filed against the county in state and federal court including eminent domain, personal injury, and breach of contract cases, but does not handle any criminal matters. Duties also include attending mediation and arbitration sessions, drafting ordinances, resolutions, contracts, interlocal government agreements and other legal documents, handling mortgage foreclosures and bankruptcy petitions and performing legal research.

The County Attorney is not authorized to provide legal advice to private citizens in her capacity as County Attorney.
