The mission of Bread for the City is to help Washington, D.C. residents living with low income to develop the power to determine the future of their own communities.

We work to uproot racism, a major cause of poverty. We are committed to treating our clients with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.
Bread for the City's Legal Clinic works to ensure better access to justice for individuals in our nation's capital. The Legal Clinic provides front-line civil legal services primarily in housing, family, immigration, and public benefits law. Our housing law practice includes defending tenants against complaints for possession of real estate, affirmative litigation on behalf of tenants and tenant associations, representation at administrative agencies, and advice and counsel in a variety of housing-related matters.
Position Description :
Bread for the City's housing practice consists of 13 housing attorneys, 1 half-time associate loaned from an area law firm and 2 paralegals. Currently, attorneys are working remotely, providing assistance to tenants through the Landlord Tenant Legal Assistance Network, a collaborative project with 5 other legal services providers in the District. Prior to remote work, our attorneys staffed an office at the Landlord/Tenant Branch of D.C. Superior Court and provided immediate representation to tenants they met for the first time at a critical point in their landlord-tenant case (many of those cases were retained by our clinic for continued representation). Our practice is fast-paced, high-energy and requires the commitment of someone who is able to multitask, as typically attorneys represent 2-3 clients at each in-court appearance. Until March 2020, attorneys in this practice were generally in court 1-2 times per week with the remainder of their time spent completing ongoing casework. Currently, the court is only holding remote hearings, and we are not operating out of the courthouse office. In addition to our representation of tenants in D.C. Superior Court, attorneys may take on administrative hearing work representing participants in federal subsidy programs or at the District's Office of Administrative Hearings.
Bread for the City seeks a dedicated lawyer with 5-7 years of post J.D. experience to assist our three other Supervising Attorneys and Managing Attorney in leading our housing team. In addition to responsibilities around staff development, mentoring and training of staff, loaned associates, pro bono attorneys, and law clerks, supervising attorneys at Bread for the City represent clients and maintain a caseload.
Finally, the Supervising Attorney will help support housing-related advocacy and policy reform efforts in the District through participation in various stakeholder groups, legislative reform efforts and outreach/tenant education events. The Legal Clinic seeks to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.
Bread for the City offers a generous benefits package. Details are available at https://breadforthecity.org/work-with-us/. Supervising Attorney salaries start at $75,000 for a minimum of 5 years legal experience and include an additional $1,000 for every additional year of legal experience capped at $5,000 (or 5 additional years). Legal experience is defined as paid work for which a JD is required and at least 32 hours per week worked. Also, the D.C. Bar Foundation offers a Loan Repayment Assistance Program to qualified Bread for the City attorneys, providing renewable one-year, interest-free, forgivable loans, of up to $12,000 per year.

Generally, an attorney's responsibility is to advise the client with an ongoing lawsuit on the legal procedures and provide strategies to resolve the case as early as possible. An attorney compiles necessary documents or any records for appeal and client's defense. Attorneys must acquire strong problem-solving and critical-thinking skills to mediate disputes and settle pending litigation for the client's best interest. In some cases, an attorney's procedure depends on any evidence and research presented during the trial period. An attorney is expected to present clients on legal proceedings, seeking justice and justifying the law.

Business partners must also keep the confidentiality of their partnering business administration at all times.
A contract attorney is responsible for handling their clients' legal issues and settling cases by researching, analyzing, and collecting essential files that would support the clients' claims. Contract attorneys usually work for private clients without being permanently employed in a law firm or government agency. Contract attorneys represent clients at court, assist with law proceedings, and advise clients for the necessary legal procedures. A contract attorney must have excellent communication and critical-thinking skills to manage client legal matters and expertise in traditional disciplines and processes.
