Associate Federal Defender
Madison, WI
Federal Defender Services of Wisconsin (FDSW) seeks to hire an exceptional attorney to join our Madison office as an Associate Federal Defender (AFD). An AFD represents clients at all stages of a federal criminal case, from initial appearance through trial and sentencing, and on appeal.
The applicant should have substantial criminal defense experience, superior research and writing skills, the ability to understand and manage complex factual and legal issues, a strong work ethic, and a reputation for integrity and professionalism. Diversity is valued. A true passion for defending indigent clients and protecting individual rights is a must.
The ideal candidate will also have the ability to further our office’s environment of creative, energetic, and passionate collaboration. It is through the collaboration of gifted and committed lawyers and staff that our office serves its fundamental mission: providing indigent federal defendants with the best representation money can’t buy.
FDSW is a nonprofit corporation responsible for providing representation to indigent persons in federal criminal cases in Wisconsin. While our office is not a federal government agency and our attorneys are not federal employees, we provide benefits comparable to those available to federal employees. Salary will be based on experience.
All positions are at-will and are subject to the availability of funding. Employment is subject to a background investigation, verifying all education and training. Some travel is required so a valid driver’s license and insurance are necessary.
The application deadline is until filled. Interested persons should please email: (1) a resume; (2) no more than three references; (3) a writing sample representing the applicant’s personal work-product; and (4) a cover letter to:
