Seal of the City Attorney of San Francisco

Welcome from City Attorney David Chiu


San Francisco has long been at the national forefront of efforts to advance civil rights, protect consumers, and ensure social justice. I’m proud to lead an award-winning public law office whose dedicated and incredibly talented employees work hard every day to carry that tradition forward.  On behalf of all of us City Attorney’s Office, I welcome you to our website.  We hope it serves as a helpful and informative resource, and makes the work we do more accessible to the people we serve.  Thanks for visiting!
