Services to Agencies

The Office of General Counsel is committed to providing the Governor and the Executive Branch with expert, responsive, practical and cost-effective legal services necessary to support the administration of Pennsylvania's government for the benefit of the public. 

In addition to the legal services that OGC provides to every agency it serves, OGC has a number of specialized programs that provide innovative and cost-reducing mechanisms for resolving legal matters.  Key among these services are OGC’s Mediation Program, designed to bring the benefits of alternative dispute resolution to the Commonwealth agencies; and OGC’s Hearing Officer Program, which conduct administrative proceedings throughout the Commonwealth.
