Associate Attorney

Terrell Marshall is accepting applications for an associate attorney. We are a Seattle-based firm with a dynamic group of attorneys, paralegals, and administrative professionals who share a commitment to social justice.

 

With a nationwide practice representing workers, consumers, and other individuals whose rights have been violated, Terrell Marshall offers associates the opportunity to work on meaningful and often cutting-edge cases in collaboration with other private and non-profit law firms. While we focus our substantive work on wage and hour, consumer fraud, and civil rights class actions, we often take cases outside those areas if they offer an opportunity to challenge unfair, deceptive, or discriminatory conduct. The Terrell Marshall team includes seasoned trial attorneys who have tried and won individual and class action cases in state and federal court as well as highly respected appellate attorneys.

 

Our commitment to social justice extends beyond our case selection. Terrell Marshall offers its attorneys and staff up to twelve hours of paid time for participation in social justice activities, such as challenging institutional racism, serving as protest observers, and protecting voting rights.
