Detroit Legal Services has an opening in our Northwest Detroit office for a staff attorney, but before applying, first take a look at what we’re all about. We’re a different kind of law firm. We do not just say that we care deeply for our clients. We put that into practice at all levels.
First of all, we are holistic. That means, if you want to be a Detroit Legal Services attorney, you need to know that we not only need a lawyer who qualifies for our Social Security division, but also one who is compassionate and cares for the disabled, minority and LGBT communities.
We help clients not only win their cases, including following through on any appeals process, but guide clients through the process in a personalized way. We consider the conditions that allowed the legal issue to arise, help them see how it is impacting their lives and explore the healthiest way to resolve all issues.
A Detroit Legal Services attorney is one that understands the distinct struggles people living with HIV/AIDS face while waiting for Social Security benefits. Take a look at our HIV/AIDS Project page and decide if this is the kind of role you are comfortable with.
It is not enough to be a competent attorney. We need those who truly care, who will go the extra mile. It’s a tough, yet rewarding, job for the right kind of applicant.
The position is full-time and a competitive salary package is included. You’ll have to travel within Michigan and Ohio using your personal vehicle, but otherwise plane travel is covered by the firm.
If this sounds like you, then please send your resume to me, Joshua Moore, via e-mail only to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31.
