FreeState Justice seeks an experienced attorney with a passion for social justice and a deep understanding of legal issues that arise out of a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity to be our next Managing Attorney.  The Managing Attorney is the chief legal officer at FreeState Justice, Inc. (“FreeState”), and will be responsible for the organization’s complex litigation, supervising the work of staff attorney(s), and collaborating with the Executive Director to achieve the organization’s policy goals, including maintaining a substantial policy portfolio of their own.  The Managing Attorney will work closely with the Executive Director, staff and volunteer attorneys, non-attorney staff and interns to effectively and efficiently provide representation to low-income LGBTQ individuals in Maryland, advocate for legal and policy change to benefit the LGBTQ community in the state, and continue building FreeState into a national model for state-level LGBTQ issue advocacy and LGBTQ-specific civil legal aid.
