Paralegal, King County Department of Public Defense
The King County Department of Public Defense, based in Seattle, is looking for up to three paralegals to work in our client-centered public defense agency. Our paralegals work in a fast-paced environment, helping to prepare cases, conduct legal research, communicate with clients, their families, law enforcement, and legal and social agencies, and much more.
DPD provides legal representation to adults and juveniles who have been charged with a crime and cannot afford an attorney, as well as people facing civil commitment, parents who could lose their children in a dependency action, and people seeking to vacate a past felony or misdemeanor conviction. DPD works to address racial disproportionality in the criminal legal system, the collateral consequences of system involvement, and other structural and systemic issues that undermine the rights of our clients.
