The Northwest Justice Project (NJP) is a not-for-profit statewide law firm with a mission of Combatting Injustice • Strengthening Communities • 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. Northwest Justice Project (NJP) recently opened an office to serve Grant and Adams Counties with funding from the Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA). The office is located in the town of Quincy, a short, beautiful commute from Wenatchee along the Columbia River. The office operates as a satellite of NJP’s Wenatchee office.
NJP seeks applications from qualified attorneys committed to supporting our mission in this new location. Applicants should have or be able to obtain membership in the Washington State Bar Association; the ability to acquire membership through reciprocity, or ability to take the next Washington bar exam is required. Spanish language fluency is required.
An interest in addressing the legal needs of small, rural communities is a must. Travel throughout the Grant/Adams region is sometimes necessary.
Demonstrated experience and/or connection to NJP’s client communities is preferred. Northwest Justice Project is especially interested in qualified candidates with professional, personal and/or service experience that allows them to contribute to and support the legal aid community’s commitment to race equity. Must be willing to be engaged with the community to be served.
