Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) seeks a Spanish-speaking attorney to provide direct representation, community outreach and education to individuals seeking legal assistance in a variety of immigration matters. The applicant must be able to start the position by February, 2021.
This position is based in NWIRP’s Granger Office, which is located in Granger, WA, a city of over 3,000 people located in a rural area 25 miles southeast of Yakima. From this location, the office serves clients from across Central and Eastern Washington. This office has a strong focus in working with a client base consisting largely of farmworkers and their families.
The staff attorney will provide legal assistance to community members through: (1) direct representation (2) individual consultations; (3) self-help assistance in the form of community workshops and legal clinics; and (4) community education. The attorney will focus on providing representation and legal assistance on a wide range of immigration cases including matters involving removal proceedings, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) petitions and applicable state court custody matters, asylum applications, protections for survivors of domestic violence and other crimes (including U visas), and citizenship applications. The staff attorney may also be assigned work relating to other immigration matters as needed. This role is currently mostly remote due to COVID-19, but will resume to work out of our Granger office once operations return to in office.
