Washington Attorney General’s Office Torts Division in Tumwater Seeking Two Attorneys, Deadline 2/7

WA AGO seal

The Torts Division has two openings for attorneys – one on the Corrections litigation team and the other on the Transportation litigation team. The Corrections team defends the Department of Corrections, the natural resource and environmental agencies, Financial Institutions, and the Secretary of State among others. The Transportation team handles tort work for the Department of Transportation, the Washington State Patrol, the Department of Labor and Industries, and the Department of Health.

Specific cases are assigned based on experience and interest; however, there are ample opportunities to work on cases outside of your assigned team. Torts practices in a fast-paced environment that is inclusive, supportive and fun-loving, but that maintains the appropriate emphasis on the significance of the important policy and legal issues inherent in tort cases. While these positions are located in the AGO’s Tumwater office, travel may be required.
