The City of Milpitas is seeking a City Attorney. The City Council seeks a strong generalist legal professional who is well-versed in public law with experience in transactional/advisory work in a mid to large public agency. The successful candidate will be transparent, highly ethical and possess a proven track record of providing sound and practical legal advice on a range of topics relating to local government. The next City Attorney possesses the political aptitude to anticipate issues of concern, is a creative problem-solver resourceful in ascertaining information quickly and is adept at finding a path through difficult issues working collaboratively with the Executive Leadership Team. Exceptional communication skills – both written and verbal – and the ability to present technical information in an easily understood manner are essential. The City Council is ultimately seeking servant leaders who engender the principles that the City Attorney works for the Council as a whole and that the role of the City Attorney is to provide impartial, non-policy driven recommendations based on the law.
