Assistant Attorney General - Public Counsel

The Public Counsel Unit of the Washington State Attorney General's Office has an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated attorney to join its collegial and collaborative unit within the AGO's Consumer Protection Division. Washington residents depend on state-regulated utility and transportation companies for essential services like electricity, natural gas, water, and solid waste collection, and it is important that the customer viewpoint is considered in regulatory proceedings. Public Counsel advocates on behalf of residential and small business customers of regulated public utility companies, including electric, natural gas, telecommunications, and water companies, as well as customers of regulated transportation companies. Public Counsel protects customers' interests in cases that set rates, establish and enforce service quality standards, review merger and acquisition petitions of regulated companies, and establish clean energy standards and requirements.
