Washington State Attorney General’s Office
Criminal Justice Division (SVP), Seattle
A challenging opportunity exists in the Sexually Violent Predator Unit of the Criminal Justice Division of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office in Seattle.
The Sexually Violent Predator Unit of the Criminal Justice Division of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office has an opening for an attorney interested in the prosecution of sexually violent predator (SVP) cases under RCW 71.09. The Attorney General’s Office is currently responsible for prosecuting SVP cases statewide, with the exception of King County. While the position is located in downtown Seattle, frequent travel around the state to prosecute these cases will be required. The attorney hired for this position will work with the other SVP prosecutors, as well as support staff consisting of paralegals, legal assistants, and an investigator.
Salary is dependent upon experience and commensurate with comparable positions in the Attorney General’s Office. A standard state benefits package is offered which includes a choice of medical/dental insurance plans, retirement, life and basic long-term disability insurance.
We are looking for an attorney with excellent writing and advocacy skills, strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to work well with others in a collegial setting. At least five years of trial experience is required, preferably in criminal prosecution and/or criminal defense work. While the caseload consists primarily of trial work in the Superior Courts, appeals that arise from these cases may occur in state and federal courts. We are looking for an attorney who is highly motivated and organized, has the ability and desire to coordinate and lead complex litigation, and possesses the superior advocacy skills required to bring these cases to a successful resolution. Applicants must be members of the Washington State Bar.
Interested applicants must submit a letter of interest, a completed application form, a current resume, writing sample and law school transcript to Linda Nakamura at 800 Fifth Avenue, Suite 2000, Seattle, WA 98104-3188.
