East Bay Family Defenders is a new legal defense organization, providing court-appointed representation to all parents, and some children, facing cases filed by the child welfare agency in Alameda County Juvenile Dependency Court. Our mission is to keep families together and minimize the time children spend in foster care. We practice in an interdisciplinary model where our attorneys work alongside peer Parent Advocates and a Social Worker.
We hire attorneys with a range of experience in Juvenile Dependency and/or relevant fields who seek a litigation-heavy position in an evolving area of law. We value diverse experience that equips staff for delivering the highest quality representation to our clients. Salary is commensurate with experience, ranging between $70,000 to $98,000. Applicants are invited to email a cover letter, resume, and one writing sample to the attention of our Hiring Manager at HiringManager@familydefender.org.
