NWIRP Seattle Seeks Bilingual Staff Attorney
January 23, 2020 | Alison Pagan

Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) seeks a bilingual (preferably Spanish-speaking) attorney
to provide direct representation and other forms of legal assistance to individuals pursuing various
forms of immigration relief. Initially this position will be based in the asylum unit of NWIRP’s Seattle
office, with focus mainly on providing assistance to individuals seeking asylum and related forms of
immigration protection. The position may shift to another unit within NWIRP’s Seattle office, and the
staff attorney will continue to provide immigration representation to NWIRP clients specific to the
particular unit’s focus.

The attorney will provide legal assistance to community members through: (1) direct representation; (2)
individual consultations; (3) case referrals to pro bono attorneys; (4) self-help assistance in the form of
community workshops; and (4) community education. The attorney will focus on representing individuals
seeking asylum and related protections, but may work on other immigration matters.

Beginning annual salary is $64,201 for a licensed attorney with no experience and is higher for attorneys
with specific types of experience. For example, for someone with 10 years of non-profit immigration
attorney experience, the annual salary would be $87,624; 20 years = $103,889.
