Seeking a Bilingual (Spanish) Attorney for the position of Criminal Defense Associate in Fairfax, Virginia

Do you want to defend the rights of people charged with a crime?

We are seeking a dedicated professional to join our team and help clients navigate the hurdles of criminal law to earn and keep their freedom.

If you want to be known for helping clients, working hard to present their case in the best possible way, leave them in a better position, and make them feel they had a team behind them that really cared and fought for them then apply today!

If these statements appeal to you, then you may be a good fit for our associate position:

  • You are excited to help people who made a mistake and deserve a second chance
  • You go above and beyond to present the best possible work product
  • You are not scared to face challenging circumstances and a litigation environment (you WILL be going to state courts several times a week)
  • You like working in a close-knit environment with like-minded individuals who are professional but still collegial
  • You are good at handling a relatively heavy caseload and taking initiative to stay on top of your workload.
  • You do not think scanning and copying are “beneath you”
  • You are licensed to practice law in Virginia
  • You speak Spanish!

We love to help people learn and grow and your CLEs, professional association dues, bar dues, and other expenses to help you fulfill your professional potential will be paid by the firm.

Additionally, some relocation assistance may be provided.

This is a full-time job where you are expected to manage a caseload, so you absolutely must be able to work in the office for a minimum of 40 hours per week.

We look forward to reviewing your application.

Compensation will depend on experience, so you may be able to make more money than the listed salary
