The Kenai Peninsula Borough is a Second Class Borough. The Borough operates within the framework established by applicable Alaska state law. Additionally, the Borough's powers and operations are determined by the Borough's Code of Ordinances. The borough attorney’s powers and duties are specified in AS 29.20.370 and KPB 2.32.020. Since incorporation in 1964, eight individuals have served as the Borough Attorney.

The Borough Attorney is the legal advisor for the Borough. The Borough’s legal department provides legal advice, representation, and assistance to the Borough Administration, Assembly, Departments, Service Areas, and School District.

The legal department cannot provide legal advice or assistance to the general public. If you need an attorney, please contact a private attorney. The legal department also cannot recommend an attorney for hire. The Alaska Bar Association, online review websites, and/or other state and local bar associations may be able to assist you in locating an attorney.
