Staff Attorney - Southwestern PA Legal Aid, Washington, PA

Southwestern PA Legal Aid logo

Southwestern PA Legal Aid is a non-profit organization in the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network (PLAN). Our mission is civil justice for those in need, their homes secured, families protected, and finances fortified. We seek a staff attorney for our Washington County office to specialize in driver’s license advocacy and outreach. The inability to drive creates significant hurdles to our clients’ employment opportunities.

As a member of our team, you will:

  • Advise and represent Washington County residents who are seeking retention or restoration of their driver’s licenses
  • Educate the public in Washington County about driver’s license laws, and opportunities to retain and restore driving privileges
  • Collaborate with social services providers and other attorneys representing Washington County clients whose driver’s licenses have been or may be suspended

This position will be full-time with benefits but with a prohibition against the outside practice of law. Flexible work schedules are permitted, when possible, though court appearances will be required as determined by the Washington County Court of Common Pleas and local Magisterial District Courts. A license to practice in Pennsylvania is required.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential tenets of our mission, and our work environment and practices reflect our commitment to uplifting the marginalized and oppressed communities we serve. We strive to recruit and retain a full spectrum of staff who are representative of our communities’ diverse demographics.
