Eugene is one of the largest three cities in Oregon and has all the amenities of a bustling metropolis combined with convenient and easy access to the Cascade mountains and forest and the Pacific Ocean. Eugene is located along the Willamette River and has a dynamic mix of arts and culture, entertainment and sports, the University of Oregon, craft brewing and eclectic dining, and cycling and track and field opportunities.

 The OLC Lane County Office consists of ten attorneys (including the advertised position), four legal assistants, and one senior law administrator. We set priorities according to client needs. Current priorities are housing law, domestic violence, senior law, immigration law, and public benefits. We seek to make real improvements in clients’ lives and to help eliminate the underlying causes of poverty.

 RESPONSIBILITIES:  The supervising attorney will be responsible for supervising and mentoring assigned staff; managing sites and projects; working with the Managing Attorney to create and maintain high-quality services with impact focus; maintaining a varied caseload initially focusing on family law and immigration, including strategic impact litigation; promoting mutual respect, acceptance, and teamwork among a diverse staff, and challenging and inspiring others to achieve positive results and grow professionally.

 OLC is an equal opportunity employer committed to creating an inclusive organization and a healthy work environment for all staff.  We strongly encourage people from diverse backgrounds and communities to apply for a job with us.  Many of our employees come from backgrounds that have not always been represented in the legal field or have not been socially or economically privileged.  This helps them be more effective advocates for our clients and contributes to our strength as an organization.  Even if you don’t believe you meet every one of the qualifications described, we hope you will consider applying, and we welcome your application.

 

SALARY/BENEFITS: $74,500 to $111,250, based on years of experience as an attorney. Additional compensation for bilingual ability. Competitive benefits package includes individual and family health, vision and dental insurance coverage, employer retirement contribution, generous paid holidays, vacation and sick leave, paid moving expenses and bar study leave, among others.
