Public Defender Association Seeks Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) Staff Attorney
April 27, 2020 | Alison Pagan

The Public Defender Association (PDA) is looking for a Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) Staff Attorney to provide legal services to LEAD clients. In addition to providing direct legal services, the LEAD Staff Attorney will closely coordinate with client case managers and create systems to provide more efficient legal services delivery, such as legal guides and trainings for case managers and legal clinics for LEAD clients.

The ideal candidate will be excited about a widely varied legal practice, assisting LEAD clients across all areas of legal need. Although broad legal experience, especially in family law, is preferred, the most important characteristics applicants can possess are the ability to independently and efficiently learn new legal practice areas and strong legal research and writing skills. PDA seeks an attorney motivated to help those most frequently disadvantaged by existing justice and social service systems, including those with disabilities and people of color. The most successful applicants will excel in providing legal services to individuals who have difficulty consistently engaging in their own representation.
