Staff Attorney - Eviction Prevention Unit

NJP launched the Eviction Prevention Unit in 2021, after a new Washington state law established a right to a free attorney for low-income renters facing court eviction. NJP is the largest organization providing legal representation to low-income renters facing eviction statewide. NJP also operates the statewide central intake system for renters requesting representation when being evicted in court.

 

The EPU’s statewide team of more than 20 lawyers operates in nearly every Washington county, and collaborates with partner right to counsel providers to ensure that every eligible tenant has a free lawyer assigned to their case.
