Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) seeks a bilingual (preferably Spanish-speaking) attorney to provide direct representation and other forms of legal assistance to individuals pursuing various forms of immigration relief. Initially this position will be based in the asylum unit of NWIRP’s Seattle office, with focus mainly on providing assistance to individuals seeking asylum and related forms of immigration protection. The position may shift to another unit within NWIRP’s Seattle office, and the staff attorney will continue to provide immigration representation to NWIRP clients specific to the particular unit’s focus.
The attorney will provide legal assistance to community members through: (1) direct representation; (2) individual consultations; (3) case referrals to pro bono attorneys; (4) self-help assistance in the form of community workshops; and (4) community education. The attorney will focus on representing individuals seeking asylum and related protections, but may work on other immigration matters.
Beginning annual salary is $64,201 for a licensed attorney with no experience and is higher for attorneys with specific types of experience. For example, for someone with 10 years of non-profit immigration attorney experience, the annual salary would be $87,624; 20 years = $103,889.
