  • New Job Opportunity: Appellate Court Attorney

    The California Court of Appeal, Fifth Appellate District, is located in the heart of central California in the city of Fresno. This area is rich in culture and diversity with easy access to the coast as well as the Sierra Nevada mountain range and three national parks. The Court’s current opening for an Appellate Court Attorney is ideal for the attorney with exceptional research, analytical, and writing skills, who is seeking meaningful legal work at the appellate level in a locale with a reasonable cost of living, easy commute, and satisfying lifestyle.

    The attorney’s duties may include drafting research memoranda and proposed opinions involving criminal and civil appeals, original proceedings, and routine dispositions. Duties may also include preparing memoranda regarding writs, motions, and other matters. In support of these activities, the attorney will review appellate briefs, records, other filings, and research and analyze applicable law. The level of appointment and starting salary will be commensurate with experience. Applicants are encouraged to apply by November 18, 2019 for earliest consideration.
