Washington State Office of Public Defense Hiring Managing Attorney
June 24, 2024 | Erin Stewart

The Washington State Office of Public Defense Parents Representation Program (PRP) is seeking a full-time Managing Attorney to work as part of a motivated, diverse team of two supervising attorneys, six managing attorneys, one training coordinator, two social service managers, one parent voice advocacy manager, and five support staff, to promote anti-racist practices, quality oversight, and continual improvement of the PRP.  PRP Managing Attorneys monitor and evaluate contracts in accordance with constitutional and statutory requirements, and provide specialized training for contractors.  Managing Attorneys collaborate with OPD support staff, contracted attorneys, contracted independent social workers, local courts, child welfare agencies, and others as necessary to ensure parent clients receive quality assistance of counsel and related services. They may also work in a variety of statewide committees or legislative initiatives, so it is necessary to understand how to work locally and statewide and understand how the advocacy may be different between the two.
