Litigation Attorney (Economic Crimes)

Location: Criminal Justice Division, Washington State Attorney General's Office

The Criminal Justice Division of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office has an opening in the Criminal Litigation Unit (CLU) in Seattle for a litigation attorney who is primarily interested in prosecuting cases related to economic crimes.  The CLU prosecutes economic crime referred from several state agencies, including Department of Revenue, Office of the Insurance Commissioner, and Labor and Industries.  While the position will have a primary workload of economic crime, there will be opportunities to handle a wide range of criminal matters.  We are looking for an attorney with significant trial litigation experience and who has demonstrated exceptional legal writing and oral advocacy skills.  The attorney hired for this position will work with attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants and investigators within the Criminal Justice Division.  CLU caseloads consist of criminal trial work in the superior courts, as well as appeals that arise from these cases, typically in state courts. The referrals from the state agencies may be completed criminal investigations or may need further investigation completed by our criminal investigators, depending on the referral agency.  The trial litigation duties will include preparing cases for charging decisions, conducting pretrial discovery under the criminal rules, and prosecuting the cases through all phases of the proceedings, including trials (both bench and jury), post-trial motions, sentencing, and restitution hearings, and some appeals.
