After graduating Order of the Coif from her law school class at the University of Kansas in 2001, City Attorney Tamara L. Niles utilized her undergraduate degree in biology and joined the environmental law department of one of Kansas City's major law firms.  During her first year of practice, Tamara began working with the construction and engineering and complex commercial litigation groups, and eventually her practice focused solely on these two areas.  In May, 2002, Tamara was asked to join several partners in Overland Park, Kansas when they formed their own law firm, Warden Triplett Grier, PA.

In March of 2005, Tamara and her husband Lance, a native of Arkansas City, had the opportunity to return to their small town roots.  Tamara accepted the position of City Attorney, where she prosecutes offenders in Municipal Court and provides counsel to the City Commission.  Tamara also founded her own law practice in downtown Arkansas City.

The City Attorney meets with anyone wishing to discuss their case each Tuesday at 12:30 p .m. at the City Building, 118 West Central, Arkansas City, Kansas.  Telephone calls are not accepted during Court hours.

All City legal issues and representation are part of the City Attorney’s responsibility.  Mrs. Niles meets with the City Commissioners on a regular basis and attends every City Commission Meeting.
