Staff Attorney

About us:

Everyday there are families afraid of losing their homes; children afraid losing parents to jail; and parents afraid of losing children to divorce. They deserve robust legal protection. ACLC makes quality legal representation available to families who would not otherwise have access to it. We also work in the fields of impact litigation, policy advocacy, and supporting community groups.


Our organizational culture:

We are committed to being just as progressive within the workplace as we are in public – including across-the-board pay equity, transparent decision-making, and collaborative planning for the future. We encourage self-starters and will support your professional growth.


Job Responsibilities:

  • Representing clients in state court.

  • Full time schedule with occasional evening and weekend hours.

  • Attorney will specialize in one or more practice areas.

  • A substantial part of our practice helping survivors of domestic violence and abuse with family law matters. Depending on the attorney’s interest, the caseload could expand to include other types of law we practice, including housing, tenants-rights, criminal defense, or civil rights litigation.



  • Attorneys already be licensed in Texas or have a concrete plan to be licensed shortly after hire.

  • A demonstrated interest in economic, social, and racial justice.

  • Fluency in Spanish or another second language is desirable but not mandatory.

  • We value diversity. Women, people of color, LGBTQIA identifying people, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.



  • $64,200 annual salary.

  • Health insurance


Remote work options

  • Office: Our staff began working remotely when the COVID pandemic began, and we expect that will continue indefinitely. You will not be expected to come into an office.

  • Court: the staff attorney must be available to appear at in-person courts settings in Travis, Hays, Williamson, and Bastrop counties.
