As the only provider of comprehensive civil legal services on Long Island, our services support thousands of poor and low-income families and individuals who cannot afford an attorney. With the gap separating those who can and cannot afford legal representation widening each day, we work to ensure that everyone has equal access to justice, regardless of their ability to pay. NSLS has a staff of over one hundred employees situated in three offices across Long Island.

The attorney will handle the case from intake through investigation, negotiation, trial, and appeal as necessary. The attorney is responsible for maintaining the required case file, client data and all statistical information as required. Participation in community legal education is anticipated.

START DATE: Immediate

SALARY: $66,000-$92,561- DOE, union scale, excellent benefits.

REQUIREMENTS: Admission to New York State Bar. Applicants who have passed the State Bar and are pending admission will also be considered.
