Staff Attorney, Legal-Policy

Immediate opening for a volunteer Staff Attorney to work with an accountable non-profit to represent clients in civil legal matters with an emphasis in family law. Applicants should have at least one year of experience in family law, victim advocacy, or representing offenders concerning domestic violence, child abuse, intimate partner sexual assault, or student or corporate related bullying incidents. Law degree from an accredited law school and license to practice law in North Carolina required. Law students will be considered with high recommendations as an intern. Applicants must also pass NC Child Abuse History clearance, NC Criminal Background Check and FBI Criminal Background check. Advocacy – We need an attorney to focus on specific nonprofit and client related legal issues, and on helping the most vulnerable people in need. This advocacy may be performed via direct representation of clients, through policy work and lobbying, or a mix of both. Some of this work overlaps with that done by civil legal services and public defenders, like advocacy for the survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, bullying;those individuals living with disabilities, the aging, LGBTQ, homeless, pet parents, or criminal defendants. There is no limit to the complexity of violence issues and this is why we need a passionate individual, group, or firm to serve with us to serve the most dangerous for the purpose of saving the most vulnerable.
