    Job Title: Associate Attorney, Sustainable Food and Farming
    Job Location: New York or Washington DC
    Job Type: Full-time
    Compensation: $89,100-$104,600
    Job Category Attorney
    Job Description: Earthjustice’s Sustainable Food and Farming Program seeks an Associate Attorney to assist with legal advocacy and litigation. This position will begin ideally in April 2022. The position will be based preferably in our New York, NY, or Washington, DC offices, although applicants seeking to work in other locations where Earthjustice has an office will also be considered.
    Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We take on the biggest, most precedent-setting cases across the country. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health; to preserve magnificent places and wildlife; to advance clean energy; and to combat climate change. We partner with thousands of groups to engage on the critical environmental issues of our time and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.
    Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a distinguished track record of achieving significant, lasting environmental protections. We achieve this by hiring people who share a passion for justice and a healthy environment. Our headquarters is in San Francisco with offices in Anchorage, Juneau, Los Angeles, Tallahassee, Miami, Honolulu, New York, Philadelphia, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Bozeman, and Washington, DC.
    The Sustainable Food and Farming Program, within the Healthy Communities Department, engages in litigation and advocacy to improve our nation’s food system, from crop selection and farming practices to food processing and sustainability. Working in partnership with communities, advocacy groups, scientists, and others, we fight for safe and healthy food, climate-friendly farming, reduced reliance on dangerous pesticides and chemical fertilizers, and animal farms—not animal factories. We take on cases with regional and national scope.
    The Associate Attorney position is a three-year position with the opportunity for extension. Many Associates have gone on to other positions within Earthjustice and with other public interest organizations. The Associate Attorney program is designed to help attorneys who are in the early stages of their careers to develop into thoughtful, professional, and effective advocates skilled in the various phases of public interest litigation. As Associate Attorneys gain experience, they gradually take on more independent responsibility for their cases, but Associates work throughout their tenure under the supervision of a Senior Attorney or the Managing Attorney.
    Due to Covid-19, Earthjustice staff are temporarily working remotely from approved locations.
    Responsibilities
    Associate attorneys perform a range of litigation and advocacy-related tasks that can include:
    - Work closely with Earthjustice attorneys, scientists, and professional staff to build cases and support policies that serve a diverse set of clients.
    - Participate in the full range of tasks involved in administrative advocacy and complex litigation, including factual investigation, legal research, memo writing, briefing, and oral advocacy.
    - Interact with clients and work with experts to develop a clear understanding of the facts involved in each case and, ultimately, to support our litigation goals.
    - Represent Earthjustice on telephone calls and at meetings with clients, partners, co-counsel, and experts.
    - Develop skills required to serve as spokesperson with print and other media.
    - Assist with hiring and supervision of student law clerks.
    We offer a mission- and employee-focused work environment and a competitive compensation package, including excellent benefits. Earthjustice is an equal opportunity employer and highly values diversity.
    Compensation is based on experience and location.
    Salary range in New York, NY: $93,800-$104,600
    Salary range in Washington, DC: $89,100-$99,400  
    For this position, we are looking to hire a candidate that is available to start in April 2022. Preference will be given to candidates who apply by January 30, 2022. After that, applications may be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
    Earthjustice brings our associate attorneys on board on a quarterly schedule, during the months of January, April, June and September.
    Please reach out to jobs@earthjustice.org if you are having technical difficulties submitting your application. No phone calls, drop-ins, or hard copies.
    Earthjustice is driven by a passion for justice, partnership and excellence. Our core values lead us to seek a broad range of perspectives and backgrounds to achieve our mission and to maintain an inclusive environment where all staff are valued and respected. As an equal opportunity employer, we are committed to employment practices that ensure that employees and applicants for employment are given equal opportunities without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, religion, physical or mental disability, medical condition, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information or any other factor that is not related to the position.

    Staff Attorney – Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc.

    (Health and Income Maintenance Unit) 

    Salary is Competitive with the Public Service Sector and is Commensurate with Experience

    Legal Services of Greater Miami and its 30 lawyers have provided locally renowned legal representation to low-income communities for 55 years.  The firm has been recognized for its creative and aggressive advocacy for its clients.  

    Legal Services is seeking a full-time Florida licensed attorney (or pending July 2021 bar results) to work in its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) which is housed in its Health and Income Maintenance Unit.  The LITC Program was created to ensure the fairness and integrity of the tax system for taxpayers who are low income or speak English as a second language (ESL) by representing taxpayers in their disputes with the IRS, educating them on their rights and responsibilities as U.S. taxpayers and identifying and advocating for issues that impact these taxpayers.

    The candidate selected will evaluate cases presented by low to moderate income taxpayers and represent them before the IRS.   A sampling of cases includes examinations, audit reconsiderations, innocent spouse petitions, identity theft, return preparer misconduct, preventing/stopping levies, releasing/withdrawing liens, recommending and submitting collection alternatives, such as, offers in compromise and installment agreements, appeals, preparing Tax Court petitions and participating in calendar calls and settlement events to assist pro se taxpayers.

    The attorney will analyze and review changes in tax laws and regulations with emphasis on changes impacting low income and ESL taxpayers.  The attorney will conduct outreach and community education to taxpayers and service providers to build awareness and knowledge of tax benefits and credits available to low income and ESL taxpayers.  The successful candidate will be on track to become the LITC Director and will be asked to assist with grant reporting requirements.

    The attorney will maintain his or her own caseload and will also be required to conduct client intake and potentially spearhead a special project or clinic.

    To achieve great outcomes for our clients and to maintain our respected reputation with the Tax Court and the LITC community, we are seeking an attorney with a commitment to, and passion for, the rights of low-income clients. The salary is commensurate with experience and depends on years of general and specialized practice.  Our comprehensive fringe benefits package includes paid holidays, paid vacation (15 days per year, which after two years, increases to 20 days per year), sick leave (12 days per year), and five additional leave days.  Full-time employees may participate in our benefits program on the 1st of the month following the date of hire. Our benefits include fully paid health insurance for employee & dependents, fully paid dental coverage for employees (dependents may be included at a minimum fee), fully paid life insurance and Long-Term Disability policy, as well as retirement savings plans with employer contributions after six months of service. 

    Job description is available at our website.  https://www.legalservicesmiami.org/job-openings

    Tax litigation experience preferred. Excellent benefits and salary.  EOE. A resume, cover letter detailing your interest in working at Legal Services and writing samples must be uploaded into our application portal.

    In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that each can bring in terms of education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and beliefs. Legal Services of Greater Miami is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
