General practice law firm seeks an Independent Contractor Immigration Attorney for a part-time, remote work position. Immediate openings available.

The best applicant for this position would be familiar with, and have handled, the following types of Immigration matters:

-- Asylum, Family Petitions, U-Visas, WAWA’s, H-Visas, K1 Visas and all other immigration related inquiries (including possible crossovers with family law and criminal law (i.e. Expungements/Motions to Vacate).

-- Experienced with EOIR matters as well as immigration court proceedings such as in the BIA, and where applicable, the 9th Circuit.

You will be handling files from start to finish including through trial, if applicable. In addition to providing you with work, we offer support by way of administrative assistance, and we can assign other attorneys and/or paralegals/law clerks to assist you with your cases, if needed. We also conduct periodic case list reviews with you to make sure cases are moving along and to see if you need any further assistance.

Tasks include, but aren't limited to, client intake (i.e, evaluating potential cases on a regular basis (primarily over the phone, but also via email, sometimes in-person where applicable), as well as handling cases through completion. Our staff handles everything else for you (i.e., the admin stuff like collecting payment from clients, handling documents and filings, managing your calendar for you, etc.).

You must be very personable, reliable, know how to manage your time efficiently, contact clients/potential clients on time and know how to work independently. We enjoy working together as a team, so a sense of humor is a plus. ;) Attorneys that have been with us for quite some time, and who are very successful with us, manage their time well, are able to function independently, efficiently and they're able to handle their caseload from start to finish without micromanagement. This is a work/life balance type of position. You will only work on cases you want to handle. You can stop receiving new matters to work on at any time.

Expectation is roughly 15-20 hours of work a week depending on how many cases you'd like to take on. More or less work is available depending on your specific needs. If you don't have around 15-20 hours a week or so available, or if you do not have experience handling cases from start to finish, please do not apply.

This is a remote only position. You can work from home, your own office, or onsite at one of our locations depending on office/room availability. Working from home and/or your own office is preferred as long as it's in a professional environment (i.e. no dogs barking, kids playing or any other substantial noise in the background).

Please email your resume or CV for consideration. This is an "attorney only" position. Please do not apply if you're not an experienced Immigration Attorney. Spanish speaking is a plus.

Pay range is from $50hr - $150/hr depending on the case/task, with $50/hr limited to consultations and document reviews only, and actual case work-up averaging around $100/hr, but the rates vary depending on the case at hand.

We also handle other areas of law, so if you're well-versed in other areas, we might have more work for you if you're interested.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you believe you're the right candidate for this position, then we look forward to hearing from you. :)
