Legal Services of New Jersey, a non-profit that provides free civil legal assistance to low income New Jerseyans, has several immediate openings for attorneys to provide legal representation to immigrant detainees. The positions will require travel to ICE detention facilities and immigration courts in Newark and Elizabeth. LSNJ is based in Edison, but maintains a small suite of offices in Newark as a “landing pad”, within walking distance from Newark Penn Station. The strongest candidates will have related experience, such as criminal defense, removal defense, or federal practice. Fluency in Spanish is an extremely important additional capacity.
LSNJ offers a positive workplace among colleagues who enjoy and are passionate about their work. We encourage a supportive, teamwork environment, with work-life balance. Benefits include comprehensive health and retirement plans and in-house trainings that offer CLE credit.
