    The Alliance - Hollywood

    DEPUTY CITY ATTORNEY

    THE COMMUNITY

    Rich in history and poised for the future, the City of Hollywood is located within minutes of the second busiest cruise port in the world and adjacent to Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. It is strategically located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami insuring convenience and access while offering a corporate and residential lifestyle all its own.  The City is home to approximately 150,000 residents and has a total area of 31 square miles and is the twelfth largest city in Florida.

    Joseph W. Young founded the city in 1925. Young had a vision of having lakes, golf courses, a luxury beach hotel, country clubs, and a main street, Hollywood Boulevard; Hollywood is a planned city. On Hollywood Boulevard is the Mediterranean-style Joseph Young Mansion, built around 1921, making it one of the oldest houses in Hollywood.

    Hollywood is filled with parks, golf courses, and sandy beaches that run for more than five miles.  The famous Hollywood Beach is known for its great boardwalk that extends about 2.5 miles along the Atlantic Ocean.  Parking is available on side streets or in parking garages, and public trolleys run through the day. Countless restaurants and hotels line the boardwalk along with a theatre, children’s playground, and many other attractions including bicycle rental shops, ice cream parlors, souvenir shops, and a farmer’s market. Many of the restaurants offer outdoor seating for patrons to enjoy the sea breeze and scenery. The boardwalk is vibrant and lively and is a scenic place for walking and jogging; there are also bike lanes for bicyclists and rollerblades. In the evenings, many restaurants and the bandshell off Johnson Street showcase musicians and spontaneous dancing may occur on the boardwalk.

    Hollywood is made up of 32 public and charter schools with 13 private schools. The public schools are operated by the Broward County Public Schools.

Earthjustice’s Fossil Fuels program is confronting this massive build-out. We use litigation, administrative advocacy, and partnership to advance an end to U.S. oil and gas extraction and production, and stop new infrastructure (e.g. petrochemical facilities, export terminals and pipelines). The Staff Attorney will focus on challenging upstream and new and expanding fossil fuel infrastructure development with an emphasis on the Ohio River Valley in Appalachia.

    Lawyer who is admitted or willing to apply for admission to the Illinois bar;
    At least five years of litigation experience;

    Ability to work independently and in collaboration with client partners and in leading a team;
    Strong and demonstrated initiative, good judgment, creativity, and work ethic;

    Demonstrated awareness and sensitivity to the needs and concerns of individuals from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and orientations;
    Commitment to help create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work culture that encourages and celebrates differences.

    Job Title: Staff Attorney, Toxic Exposure and Health Program
    Job Location: New York, NY or Remote from Washington, DC
    Job Type: Full-time
    Compensation: Salary range in New York, NY with 7+ years experience: $151,600+ Salary range in Washington, DC with 7+ years experience: $144,020+
    Job Category Attorney
    Job Description: Earthjustice is seeking a Staff Attorney to join the Toxic Exposure & Health Program. The work of the Toxic Exposure and Health Program is at the heart of Earthjustice’s mission to defend the right of all people to live, work, and raise children in a healthy environment. The attorney selected for this position will work closely with other professionals (attorneys, scientists, policy analysts, legislative advocates, communications experts) seeking to protect families, communities, and populations—especially those most overburdened or susceptible to harm—from toxic chemicals in the workplace, in consumer products, in the built environment, and in the outside environment. The attorney also will partner with Earthjustice staff who focus on securing clean air, clean water, and sustainable food and agriculture. The successful candidate will be housed in either our New York City office or will work remotely based out of Washington, D.C. (note all Earthjustice staff are working remotely while offices are closed due to COVID-19), and may be called on to litigate around the country.

    Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We have approximately 140 attorneys working in fourteen regional offices around the country. Founded in 1971, we have a distinguished track record of using litigation and legal advocacy to achieve lasting environmental progress. 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, supporters, individuals and communities to tackle the critical environmental issues of our time, and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.

    Earthjustice’s Staff Attorneys are experienced attorneys who, on behalf of our clients, develop, file, and litigate cases that align with the goals and needs of the program or regional office in which they work. We compensate our Staff Attorneys in lockstep based on their geography and years of legal experience; some staff attorneys have fewer than ten years of litigation experience while others have been with us for decades, and many are nationally-recognized leaders in their fields.

    Exposure to toxic chemicals is linked to chronic diseases and health conditions, many of which are on the rise as toxic exposures have increased. The goal of the Toxic Exposure & Health Program is to use litigation and other legal advocacy to ensure that all people have safe workplaces and neighborhoods, access to safe drinking water and food, and live in homes that are free of hazardous chemicals. In recent years, attorneys doing this work have won a groundbreaking lawsuit requiring EPA to improve its lead hazard standards, successfully petitioned the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban a toxic class of flame retardants in consumer products, prevailed in a challenge to rules that would have allowed EPA to ignore the risks posed by legacy uses of toxic substances, such as lead in drinking water pipes, when it conducts chemical risk evaluations, and sued the United States Department of Defense for incinerating the dangerous and persistent chemicals known as PFAS without environmental review.

    We expect the staff attorney we hire for this position to play a leading role in developing and leading litigation and seeking opportunities to further the Program’s work using litigation as well as other forms of legal advocacy. The ideal candidate for this position will have experience with all aspects of complex litigation—including developing cases, motion practice, evidentiary hearings, oral argument, and appeals. Prior experience with environmental law is not required, but prior experience with administrative law, as well as a demonstrated capacity to work effectively in a public-interest environment, is strongly preferred. While a science background is not required, candidates should be comfortable reading and working with scientific material.

    The Staff Attorney’s time will be spent on substantive case/legal matter work (70%), supervision/mentoring (20%), and administrative matters (10%).
    Job Requirements: Responsibilities

    Develop cases and legal advocacy strategies to support the goals of the Toxic Exposure and Health Program, and the organization.
    Litigate cases from beginning to end, taking the lead on all aspects of litigation.
    Work with Earthjustice lobbyists and coalition partners to advance legislative and other advocacy strategies.
    Supervise the work of associate attorneys, fellows, interns, and litigation assistants.
    Cultivate new allies and engage in partnerships with, and representation of, community groups, workers, organizations, coalitions, and others.
    Collaborate and manage relationships with co-counsel, clients, and coalition partners.
    Support and contribute to a positive and collegial work environment and help to advance Earthjustice’s efforts to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that centers equity and justice.
    Serve as spokesperson for Earthjustice and, where appropriate, clients.
    Work collaboratively and effectively with colleagues throughout Earthjustice, including Litigation, Communications, Development, and Policy and Legislation.

    Qualifications

    Law school graduate admitted, or willing to apply for admission, to the New York State Bar or the DC Bar.
    At least seven years of litigation experience, including top-notch legal research, writing and oral advocacy skills, with a preference for attorneys with at least ten years of litigation experience.
    Some science education or background, or, at a minimum, comfort parsing scientific information.
    Initiative, good judgment, and a strong work ethic.
    A commitment to public interest work and a passion for Earthjustice’s mission.
    Ability to work both independently and in collaboration with others.
    Demonstrated awareness and sensitivity to the needs and concerns of individuals from diverse cultures, backgrounds and orientations.
    Commitment to help create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and culture that encourages and celebrates differences.
    How to Apply Apply here: https://app.jobvite.com/j?cj=oX3fdfwc&s=Gwen_S._Cherry_Black_Women_Lawyers_Association

    Interested candidates should submit the following via Jobvite:

    Resume

    Job Title: Director of Strategic Legal Advocacy
    Job Location: San Francisco,CA; Washington, DC; Remote
    Job Type: Full-time
    Job Category Director
    Job Description:
    Earthjustice is the nation’s premier environmental law nonprofit. Our 450-person team wields the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health, preserve magnificent places and wildlife, and combat climate change. We represent clients ranging from community groups and Indian tribes to the largest environmental NGOs. We do it for free because the earth needs a good lawyer.

    This fall, Earthjustice is looking for a highly experienced attorney who has the perspective, expertise, and people skills to serve as our first Director of Strategic Legal Advocacy.

    Our cases typically involve substantive claims arising from environmental, administrative, or civil rights laws. But winning those cases often depends on successful advocacy concerning “non-substantive” doctrines such as standing, finality, deference to agency decisionmaking, and federal remedies. In recent decades, we have seen concerted attempts to influence these doctrines in ways that limit our clients’ ability to vindicate their legal rights to a healthy environment, transparent government, and justice under the law.

    Our Director of Strategic Legal Advocacy will help our 150-lawyer team identify and counter these doctrinal trends in the context of our ongoing substantive work. The Director will serve as a resource for monitoring relevant legal developments, as a thought partner for teams confronting relevant doctrinal issues in their matters, and as lead counsel in impact litigation where appropriate. While the Director will focus primarily on Earthjustice’s own advocacy, we anticipate that they will routinely work with Earthjustice’s peers in the broader progressive legal community.

    The Director will be the first member of a team that we plan to expand over time. We expect the Director to hire an additional attorney to the team by June 2021, and to hire additional staff by June 2022. These plans are contingent upon Earthjustice’s fundraising efforts.

    The Director will report to Earthjustice’s Senior Vice President of Programs, who supervises Earthjustice’s litigation and lobbying teams.

    Applicants can choose to work from our San Francisco, CA headquarters or Washington D.C., or to work remotely with access to our offices in twelve other cities.

    Responsibilities:

    Litigation strategy, support, and leadership – 90%

    Develop systems and partnerships to track legal trends in administrative, procedural, and access to justice issues that impact Earthjustice’s ability to pursue substantive environmental law claims;
    Serve as a resource to Earthjustice attorneys to improve our written and oral advocacy on strategically important administrative and procedural issues;
    Develop systems and partnerships to identify opportunities for impact litigation on administrative and procedural issues, including matters where amicus participation is may be warranted, and
    Assemble and coordinate teams to litigate such cases, and, where appropriate, supervise or serve as lead counsel in that litigation;
    Identify opportunities for our Policy and Legislation team to drive valuable statutory and regulatory changes in administrative law, civil procedure, and legal structures related to access to justice;
    Work with Earthjustice’s VP of Litigation Practice and Litigation Training team to educate litigation staff about cross-cutting and emerging issue areas;
    Work with peer organizations to improve and coordinate advocacy on issues of common concern, including advocacy before the Supreme Court of the United States;
    Represent Earthjustice as a thought leader to peer organizations and external audiences at public events;
    Demonstrate an awareness and sensitivity to the needs and concerns of individuals from diverse cultures, backgrounds and orientations, and inculcate similar awareness and sensitivity through our entire organization; and
    Contribute to recruiting, hiring, developing and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce.

    Management - 10%

    Recruit and hire qualified candidates who fit position requirements and the work environment;

    Job Type: Full-time
    Compensation: Based on location and experience
    Job Category Attorney
    Job Description: Earthjustice seeks an associate attorney to join our work that prioritizes frontline communities who are burdened with the most pollution and environmental harms while being excluded from environmental benefits provided to other communities. We work with community leaders to challenge the environmental and social status quo, helping communities change the conditions in which they live.

    Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. 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, supporters, individuals and communities to engage 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.

Many Associates have gone on to other positions within Earthjustice and with other public interest organizations.

    Responsibilities:

    Work closely with other program staff and clients to investigate, develop, and litigate cases, such as through legal and factual research; oral advocacy; and drafting briefs, petitions, comments, and other legal documents
    Participate in cultivating relationships with new clients, allies, and coalition partners.
    Integrate communications and legislative advocacy into litigation and other legal strategies.
    Support efforts to ensure a diverse, equitable and inclusive work culture that encourages and celebrates differences.
    Job Requirements: Qualifications:

    0-5 years of experience
    Admitted to, or eligible for admission to, the D.C. Bar.
    Excellent research, analytic, writing, and communication skills.
    Strong and demonstrated initiative, good judgment, creativity, and work ethic.
    Ability and willingness to travel as needed, including for case work, court appearances, and meetings with clients and partners.
    Commitment to serving the public interest and a passion for the role of Earthjustice and its mission.
    Legal or non-legal experience supporting communities working to overcome injustice is a plus.
    Strong interpersonal skills, including the ability to work well collegially.
    Demonstrated awareness and sensitivity to the needs and concerns of individuals from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and orientations.
    Commitment to help create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work culture that encourages and celebrates differences.
    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.

    Salary is based on experience and location.
