Small to mid-sized growing firm in Shelton, WA looking for a motivated Associate Attorney to handle misdemeanor indigent defense or a mixture of misdemeanor and felony cases, depending on experience. The position is open and we are looking for someone who can start immediately.
The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who enjoys client contact and time in the courtroom. 1-2 years of experience in indigent defense would be ideal. However, candidates without that experience will be considered.
This would be an ideal position for an attorney who wants a great deal of autonomy with the benefit of learning from the seasoned attorneys in the office. We have a laid-back atmosphere where everyone is able to set their own schedules around court dates and client appointments.
The Associate will be handling one busy pretrial calendar on Wednesdays and a regularly scheduled preliminary appearance / arraignment calendar on Monday afternoon. Associate will also handle arraignment calendars on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays (if there is no one in custody then no court on these days). The attorneys also cover for one another when there are schedule conflicts or vacations. Must be licensed in Washington or have taken the bar exam. New grads encouraged to apply.
ONLY attorneys currently living in Washington State and licensed in Washington State (or new grads awaiting results of the bar exam) will be considered. Please send a cover letter and resume.
Please direct all inquiries to Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-868-6558.
