Summit 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 are seeking a staff attorney for our Cambria and Somerset County offices.

As a member of our team, you will:

  • Advise and represent clients in civil legal matters, including protection from abuse, family law, housing, income, and debt
  • Collaborate with staff and partners for holistic client advocacy
  • Maintain a commitment to advocate for the rights of our low-income community

Flexible work schedules are permitted, when possible, though court appearances will be required as determined by the Courts 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.

The starting salary will be at least $63,000 and will depend on experience.
