Welcome to the Office of the Carver County Attorney

It is a privilege to serve the people of Carver County as the County Attorney.  Our office is committed to providing the highest quality, ethical representation in all matters. 

As the Chief Prosecutor of the County, our first priority is to protect the safety of the citizens of Carver County by vigorously prosecuting those who commit crimes that tear at the very fabric of our society.  Of equal importance is ensuring that the rights of crime victims are honored and respected throughout the criminal justice process.

As the Chief Lawyer for the County, our office is committed to protecting the interests of the citizens of Carver County by providing superior legal advice and representation to the County Board, County Administration and the departments of County government; to protect and defend the county from law suits; civilly commit the mentally ill and dangerous; enforce county ordinances; collect child support from parents who shun their responsibilities; and protect children who are neglected and abused.

The lawyers and staff of the County Attorney’s Office are an extremely talented group of public servants who not only share these goals, but work hard daily to accomplish them.   

Mark Metz, County Attorney
