The attorney must maintain relationships with other programs and agencies and attend appropriate meetings to further the program and funder expectations. Strong litigation skills in California courts; demonstrated commitment to public interest advocacy; high degree of initiative and willingness to work collaboratively with others; demonstrated ability to supervise and provide leadership; ability to travel throughout the county; and bilingual capacity in Spanish is strongly preferred.

Qualified candidates must have a California Bar membership, three (3) or more years of post-law school legal experience. The attorney must have a commitment to serving low-income population, ability to relate and communicate with a broad range of clients and colleagues. Proficiency in verbal Spanish is preferred by not required, clearly and concisely writing, and proficient with Excel, Word, Outlook, and Westlaw.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
