LCYC Seeks Staff Attorney in King County
June 8, 2020 | Alison Pagan

Legal Counsel for Youth and Children (LCYC) seeks an advocate with a Washington state bar
membership or ability to attain membership within the next few months to provide direct representation,
community outreach, and education to young people 12-24 years who are or are at risk of experiencing
homelessness in King County.

The position will be based in King County. LCYC is a virtual non-profit – the attorney will work from home and spend most of their time in the community, meeting with clients and community partners in
schools, shelters, and at court. As part of the Youth Homelessness Program team, the attorney will be
representing clients on a wide range of civil legal issues including, but not limited to housing, public
benefits, employment, education, orders of protection, family law, and medical debt. Applicants do not
need existing expertise in these legal areas, but they do need to arrive at LCYC with a commitment to
continual learning. We are looking for a passionate, collaborative, and innovative attorney.

The attorney will provide legal assistance for young people through (1) direct legal representation (2)
legal advice and consultation, and (3) legal education to youth and community partners. In addition, in
collaboration with youth and community providers, the attorney will help identify and influence
systemic barriers to the elimination of youth homelessness.
