As a staff attorney, you will provide direct representation, individual consultations, and community outreach and education to immigrant community members seeking immigration protections before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). While not anticipated for this temporary role, NWIRP attorneys also practice before the immigration courts. The staff attorney may also be assigned work relating to other immigration matters, including cases of people in immigration detention. This position is expected to travel to USCIS offices in Seattle, Spokane or Yakima in Washington State, and occasionally in Portland, Oregon. A valid driver’s license will be required in order to meet these expectations. The position may involve evening and weekend work hours.
