Mission Statement
The mission of the Lincoln County Corporation Counsel is to protect the public health, safety and general welfare of Lincoln County residents by providing quality legal services in an efficient and timely manner to the County, its boards, committees, departments and public officials.

Services Provided

The Lincoln County Corporation Counsel is the attorney charged with representing the interests of the county, its elected officials, agencies, boards and commissions in all legal matters. This includes both prosecutorial and defense responsibilities. Consequently, the Corporation Counsel’s office represents the county in any litigation or legal matter involving the county’s interests. Additionally, statutes require that the Corporation Counsel represent the interest of the public in all mental commitments, certain guardianship and protective placement cases and involuntary termination of parental rights cases.

We do not provide legal advice or legal services to individuals. By law, we are empowered to do legal work only for Lincoln County and its' officials.

The Corporation Counsel’s office does not deal with creating or finding information about Wisconsin corporations. Information about corporations or other business organizations can be found through the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. Their website is found at http://www.wdfi.org
