Child Advocacy Section
The Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking self-motivated individuals to consider for the position of Assistant Attorney General in the Child Advocacy Section (ChAS) of the Civil Enforcement Division. Frequent travel will be required. This position is based in Salem with opportunities for a hybrid remote work schedule.
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.
This litigation-focused position requires significant time in the court, strong organizational skills, attention to detail and the ability to work collaboratively with agency-client representatives and internal support staff teams.
Questions may be directed to 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.
