The King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office has regular need to hire term-limited deputy assistants (contract lawyers). Contracts are initially for six months and are often extended for up to one year. Potential work assignments include handling gross misdemeanor cases in the District Court Unit, handling gross misdemeanor and felony cases in the Juvenile Unit, assisting with drug and mainstream felony filings, and covering felony calendars. These positions provide excellent courtroom experience, especially for new or inexperienced lawyers. Deputy Assistants are interviewed throughout the year and considered for regular openings when they become available. Over the past few years, the PAO has hired many of our contract lawyers into regular positions as openings become available.


Interested applicants may send a resume and cover letter to be kept on file for consideration in the event that we have a need to hire a deputy assistant attorney. Candidates must be bar qualified in the State of Washington. Application materials should be sent via e-mail to Heidi Parkington, Human Resources Director at
