Bilingual Staff Attorney - CLEAR Program

Northwest Justice Project (NJP) is a not-for-profit statewide law firm with a mission of combatting injustice, strengthening communities, and protecting human dignity. NJP secures justice for people in or near poverty through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of low-income individuals, families, and communities through legal representation, community partnerships, education, and other advocacy.


NJP seeks a full-time bilingual staff attorney to work at CLEAR, our telephone-based legal aid and referral unit. “CLEAR” stands for Coordinated Legal Education, Advice, and Referral, and CLEAR advocates handle many kinds of civil legal problems, providing advice over the phone, some unbundled services, and referrals where available. CLEAR attorneys serve as part of a statewide team of legal aid advocates who work cooperatively to provide legal assistance to the State's indigent population. Litigation experience is a plus, though this is not a litigation position. NJP is especially interested in qualified candidates whose professional, personal and/or service experience allows them to contribute to the diversity and excellence of the legal services community.


All NJP attorneys work as part of a comprehensive, statewide equal justice delivery system to ensure that low-income people have access to the legal help they need.


The assigned office location is flexible. (Aberdeen, Bellingham, Everett, Longview, Port Angeles, Seattle, Tacoma, Vancouver, Yakima) A hybrid or remote schedule may be considered if the person hired is eligible under NJP’s Telecommuting Policy. Occasional travel will be necessary for meetings/trainings.


Starting salary is based upon years of experience, with an annual salary range starting at $73,142 to $133,712. NJP offers compensation for those who are regularly asked to use a language other than English in their work. We provide a comprehensive benefits package that includes 100% paid employee health premiums and significant premium shares for family health premiums, as well as generous time off.
