TeamChild Seeks Director of Legal Services
November 20, 2019 | WDA

TeamChild is seeking a Director of Legal Services who will be responsible for leading and maintaining TeamChild’s high quality and holistic direct legal services program consistent with the organization’s values, vision and mission. In this role, the Director of Legal Services will build on TeamChild’s twenty years of experience and collaboratively develop, lead and implement priorities and impact strategies and supervise our client-directed work across the state.

The Director of Legal Services supervises four Managing Attorneys and the Juvenile Rehabilitation Institutions & Reentry Project staff and oversees the onboarding, training, and professional development of all attorney and non-attorney legal services staff. The Director of Legal Services does not carry a caseload but provides litigation and other case handling support to Managing Attorneys and other staff attorneys across the state. The Director of Legal Services oversees and manages attorney licensing, protocols and professional and ethical duties related to case handling and contract acquisition, deliverables, and reporting related to the legal services program activities.

The Director of Legal Services reports to the Executive Director, is a member of TeamChild’s Executive Team, and works with all staff in supporting strategic policy advocacy, community engagement, and communication efforts to ensure visibility and accountability across diverse communities and social justice movements. This position will require frequent travel to TeamChild offices across the state. We anticipate this position will be based out of TeamChild’s King County office in Seattle, but are open to considering the Pierce County office in Tacoma if that is preferred.
