Bread for the City
The mission of Bread for the City is to help Washington, D.C. residents living with low income to develop the power to determine the future of their own communities. We provide food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services to reduce the burden of poverty. We seek justice through community organizing and public advocacy. We work to uproot racism, a major cause of poverty. We are committed to treating our clients with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.
Bread for the City’s Legal Clinic works to ensure better access to justice for individuals in our nation’s capital. The Legal Clinic provides front-line civil legal services primarily in three areas of law: housing, family, and public benefits. Our Housing Law practice includes defending tenants against complaints for possession of real estate, affirmative litigation on behalf of tenants and tenant associations, representation at administrative agencies, and advice and counsel in a variety of housing-related matters.
Position Description: The Legal Clinic seeks an attorney for its housing practice, which consists of a dedicated team of 9 housing attorneys and 1 half-time associate loaned from an area law firm. Currently, attorneys are working remotely providing assistance to tenants through the Landlord Tenant Legal Assistance Network. Prior to remote work, our attorneys staffed an office at the Landlord/Tenant Branch of D.C. Superior Court and provided immediate representation to tenants they met for the first time, at a critical point in their landlord-tenant case (many of those cases were retained by our clinic for continued representation). Our practice is fast-paced, high-energy and requires the commitment of someone who is able to multi-task as typically attorneys represent 2-3 clients at each appearance. Attorneys in this practice were generally in court 1-2 times per week with the remainder of their time spent completing ongoing casework. Right now the court is only holding remote hearings and we are not currently operating out of the courthouse office. In addition to our representation of tenants in D.C. Superior Court, attorneys may take on administrative hearing work representing participants in federal subsidy programs or at the District’s Office of Administrative Hearings. Finally, the Housing Attorney will help support housing-related advocacy and policy reform efforts in the District through participation in various stakeholder groups and legislative reform efforts. The Legal Clinic seeks to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.
Member of the D.C. Bar or eligible to practice under D.C. Court of Appeals Rule 49(c)(9) (2020 graduates will not be considered);
Demonstrated commitment to social, economic, and racial justice and/or willingness to learn and carry out Bread for the City’s commitments in these areas;
Strong organizational, research, and oral and written communication skills;
Ability to proceed effectively in court with little time for preparation;
High degree of flexibility;
Sense of humor, seriously;
Ability to work with other staff and interact with a wide variety of people, including volunteers, in a professional and collaborative manner;
Comfortable working in an open work environment, with no private offices for staff;
Familiarity with Google Organization & Productivity tools (Gmail, Google Docs, Calendar) and/or ability to learn new technology systems;
Prior experience in a legal services or other public interest setting;
Knowledge of or experience with DC housing law a plus; and
Bilingual (Spanish/English) skills preferred but not required.
Compensation: Bread for the City offers competitive non-profit salaries based on experience and a generous benefits package.
