The Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking a self-motivated individual to consider for the position of Assistant Attorney General in the Pendleton Child Advocacy Section (ChAS) of the Civil Enforcement Division. Frequent travel will be required. This position is managed out of the DOJ Pendleton office, but opportunity exists for hybrid remote work within or near the eastern Oregon region. ChAS attorneys are responsible for providing comprehensive legal advice and litigation services to the Oregon Department of Human Services Child Welfare Program (DHS) in all phases of juvenile dependency and termination of parental rights cases. Section attorneys work closely with ODHS regarding child safety and to improve outcomes for children and families in child abuse and neglect cases. Attorneys must effectively balance providing legal advice with frequent court appearances, from short hearings to multi-day complex trials. This position also requires the ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment.
Questions may be directed to Deputy Chief Counsel Joanne Southey at (971) 673-1880.
In an ongoing effort to attract and retain diverse candidates, we are hopeful you’ll share our recruitment with members of your association, organization, or section members. I am available by phone or email if you have questions.
