Deputy Assistant Attorney
The King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office intermittently hires 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 misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor cases in District Court, handling misdemeanor and felony cases in Juvenile Court, assisting with drug and mainstream felony filings, covering felony calendars and covering hearings in Involuntary Treatment Court. These positions provide excellent courtroom experience, especially for new or inexperienced lawyers or lawyers who are new to the jurisdiction. Over the past few years, the PAO has hired many of our contract lawyers into regular positions as openings become available.
Interested applicants should check the King County jobs webpage throughout the year as deputy assistant jobs are posted to that webpage when openings are available. Openings will be limited through 2020. Candidates must be bar qualified in the State of Washington at the time of application. If you have any questions about our deputy assistant positions, please feel free to contact Stephanie Sato, Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, Human Resources at Stephanie.Sato@kingcounty.gov.
