Staff Attorney (Central Texas) (Full time / Part time)

Application deadline: April 15, 2024

About us:

Everyday there are families afraid of losing their homes, children afraid of 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 to advance socioeconomic and racial equity through 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 diversity on staff, 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.

    • At the outset, the staff attorney’s caseload will comprise primarily family law cases.

    • Depending on the attorney’s interest, the caseload could expand to include other types of law we practice, including housing, criminal defense, probate, or civil rights litigation.

  • Maintaining a full-time schedule with occasional evening and weekend hours.

  • Supervising and supporting paralegals in family law matters.



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

  • We value diversity. People of color, people with experience living in poverty, LGBTQIA-identifying people, women, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

  • This position calls for a person with experience representing clients in family law matters. The ideal candidate will have a background consulting with clients, issue spotting, reviewing evidence, drafting court documents, and appearing in court.

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

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



  • Full time

    • $64,200 annual salary.

    • 100% employer-funded health insurance.

    • Group plans for vision, dental, and life insurance.

  • Part time position

    • $32.10 an hour, with a flexible but predictable schedule

    • Benefits that are available based on your schedule


Remote work

  • Office: Our staff began working remotely when the COVID pandemic began, and we expect that will continue indefinitely. We do not provide access to office space, and 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.
