An attorney in this position will be benefits-eligible and it is anticipated that this position would have a billable hour expectation of 1500 – 1800.

A successful candidate is dedicated to the practice of environmental law, has self-motivation, strong intellectual curiosity, good judgment, responsiveness, perseverance, and excellent written and oral communication skills. This position is not a remote position; presence in the office at least 3 days a week is important for collaboration.  Active membership in the California bar is required.

At the time of posting, the expected salary range for this position is $150,000 to $250,000. Actual salary offers may vary based on a number of factors, including but not limited to, education, training, skill sets, licensure and certifications, practice area, experience, internal equity, and market data.
