NJP is receiving new funding through the Office of Civil Legal Aid’s Civil Justice Reinvestment Plan. As a result, NJP is able to increase its staff capacity through the addition of new staff attorney positions located throughout Washington State.

The Northwest Justice Project (NJP) offers a unique opportunity to join a mission driven organization serving the legal needs of low-income people and communities in the Central region of Washington State.  Yakima sits at the Eastern foot of the Cascade Mountain range and includes diverse industries, affords rich cultural and recreational opportunities, and offers significant opportunity for professional growth and development within a larger statewide legal aid program.

NJP seeks applications from qualified attorneys committed to supporting our mission in Yakima and Kittitas counties working out of our Yakima office.  The ideal candidate would be interested and willing to pursue civil litigation in areas related to housing, consumer protection, family law, public benefits, health care access and other emerging issues.

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.

Starting salary is based upon years of experience, with an annual salary range starting at $63,233 to $118,185.
