RFP for City Attorney Services

City Attorney RFP

The City of Watsonville (“City”) is soliciting proposals from qualified attorneys and/or law firms interested in providing City Attorney services. The selected attorney or law firm will be expected to provide a wide range of services to the City. The City currently contracts with a law firm to provide City Attorney services, but also retains special counsel in a number of areas. The City is open to considering proposals ranging from individual attorneys offering general, municipal counsel services with specialized legal services outsourced to other attorneys, to law firms offering a full suite of both general and special counsel services. The City will reserve the right to continue to use the current services of special counsel, as needed, at its sole and entire discretion.

Proposals are due no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Interested firms or attorneys should submit one original and unbound hard copy to the address below and an electronic copy should be emailed to 

Late submittals will not be considered and will be returned unopened. The proposals can be delivered or mailed to:

  • How many City council and subcommittee meetings occur per month? 
    There are two City Council meetings per month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. 

  • How many meetings would the City Attorney attend?  
    Per the Charter, the City Attorney is expected to attend all City Council meetings.  In addition, it is expected that the City Attorney will attend all Planning Commission meetings which are held on the first Tuesday of every month.

  • Would the City be open to a hybrid attendance model, some in person and some remote, for City Attorney attendance?
    Currently, all meetings are held virtually.  We are unsure at this time when we will return to in-person meetings and when we do, whether or not there will be an option for a hybrid attendance model.
