Are you passionate about serving immigrants?

At Molina Law Group, we love serving immigrants because we strongly believe that Immigrants Make America Great! We freeze the fear of ICE by helping immigrants and their families arrive at a place of security and prosperity in the U.S.

Molina Law Group is a team of growth-minded professionals who earn trust through reliable and compassionate services. We work to build stronger communities through distinct and effective legal strategies. We are driven to create a positive legacy.

The right candidate will have a minimum of one year of experience handling all types of family and humanitarian petitions, and removal defense. They will have the ability to review forms online to find the smallest error. They will ideally be able to communicate directly with clients in Spanish orally and in writing.

Living in or close to the Portland metropolitan area is important because this position ideally would require regular in-person representation of clients at USCIS and EOIR in downtown Portland, Oregon. However, we are also looking for attorneys who could be located anywhere in the world. Bar licensure in Oregon is preferred but not required.

We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running. Skills and experience are required and valued, but attitude, character, personality, and integrity are also important. The ideal candidate will have a growth mindset, an ability to relate to people in crisis, and a good sense of humor.

This is a full-time, salaried position with minimum annual billable hours set at 1200 (25 hours a week average), and bonuses are provided after minimum hours are reached. After 90 days the position is eligible for health insurance, matching 401K, three weeks of paid time off plus ten paid holidays annually.

Does this sound like you?

We seek exceptional people who want to become part of our team. To us the word “team” means we win together and we lose together, so your contributions to our overall profitability and reaching our goals include anticipating problems, proposing solutions, and just generally demonstrating that you are ready to join us through thick and thin. Your contributions will be recognized, appreciated, and rewarded.
