Descrição

Northwest Justice Project (NJP) is a not-for-profit statewide law firm with a mission of combatting

injustice, strengthening communities, and protecting human dignity. NJP secures justice for people

in or near poverty through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of

low-income individuals, families, and communities through legal representation, community

partnerships, education, and other advocacy.

NJP seeks a full-time bilingual (spanish/english) staff attorney to work at CLEAR, our telephone-based legal aid and referral unit. “CLEAR” stands for Coordinated Legal Education, Advice, and Referral, and CLEAR advocates handle many kinds of civil legal problems, providing advice over the phone, some unbundled services, and referrals where available. CLEAR attorneys serve as part of a statewide team of legal aid advocates who work cooperatively to provide legal assistance to the State's indigent population. Litigation experience is a plus, though this is not a litigation position. NJP is especially interested in qualified candidates whose professional, personal and/or service experience allows them to contribute to the diversity and excellence of the legal services community.

All NJP attorneys work as part of a comprehensive, statewide equal justice delivery system to ensure that low-income people have access to the legal help they need.


The assigned office location is flexible. If interested in a location other than Seattle, please inquire

with attorneyresume@nwjustice.org to see if space is available at that NJP site. A hybrid or remote

schedule may be considered if the person hired is eligible under NJP’s Telecommuting Policy.

Occasional travel will be necessary for meetings/trainings.


NJP requires all employees to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. Providing proof of

COVID-19 vaccine is a condition of employment. Exemptions based on medical and sincerely held

religious beliefs may be requested per NJP’s EEO employer policy.
