Inner City Law Center (ICLC) is a nonprofit law firm located in the Skid Row neighborhood of Downtown Los
Angeles. We are looking for extraordinary people to help us end homelessness in Los Angeles. Founded on the
fundamental principle that every person should always be treated with dignity and respect, ICLC fights for justice
for low-income tenants, working-poor families, people who are disabled or homeless, people living with
HIV/AIDS, and homeless veterans.

Position Description: ICLC seeks a talented full-time Senior Staff Attorney to serve our clients who are
experiencing homelessness, at imminent risk of homelessness, or living with HIV/AIDS. Working in partnership
with homeless service providers, the Senior Staff Attorney will provide holistic legal services to tackle barriers
that prevent our clients from securing housing or staying housed.

In addition to participating in community outreach events, including legal clinics, providing trainings for service
partners, and developing relationships with service providers, the Senior Staff Attorney will practice creative
problem solving and litigation to address novel issues as well as the following routine items: landlord tenant
issues such as eviction, harassment, illegal lockouts and citation; minor citations and tickets; criminal record
expungement and clearing; securing professional licenses and resolving legal barriers impacting employment;
reasonable accommodations issues (requests and appeals) for mental, physical and health related disabilities;
immigration issues that directly impact housing, income, benefits, and employment eligibility; credit/debt issues
that negatively impact income such as collection, garnishments, student loan debt, as well as fines and fees
associated with the criminal legal system.

Hiring Criteria: Commitment to ICLC’s mission and values, and a willingness to provide holistic client-centered
legal services with kindness and a trauma-informed approach in order to communicate and connect effectively
with our clients. Ability to handle a large and varied caseload and assume responsibility quickly, both
independently and as part of a team. Excellent oral and written communication skills. Comfort and readiness to
participate in creative and zealous advocacy, including restraining order hearings and unlawful detainer trials.
