Staff Attorney

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.

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



  • Attorneys must be licensed in Texas and familiar with family law practice in Texas courts.

  • 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.
