Staff Attorney - Domestic Violence
Legal Services Alabama (LSA) is one of the largest statewide law firms in Alabama. As a non-profit law firm, our mission provides free, client-centered civil legal advocacy to low-income Alabamians and collaborates with others across the state and nation to find solutions to systemic issues caused by poverty and social justice inequities. LSA seeks applications from qualified attorneys committed to supporting our mission. This is a full-time position in our Montgomery Regional Office.
The attorney will provide community outreach and civil legal representation to address the needs of domestic violence clients. Much of the legal work will focus on immediate safety needs of the client to include protection orders but the attorney will assist the client in other areas of legal work that include housing, consumer protection, education, custody, employment, public assistance needs, and other priorities established by the Board of Directors.
