Entry-level criminal law attorney job in New York City

This was forwarded to us by a reader, who quips: "Hopefully the defendants facing a year in Rikers or life in Sing Sing don't mind someone with 0 years of experience defending them (along with performing secretarial and paralegal work)."

Very busy, small midtown criminal practice with work in both federal and state courts seeking attorney with 0-3 years experience. Must have strong research and writing skills, and demonstrated interest and/or experience in criminal law. The ideal candidate will have excelled in law school, be comfortable handling multiple assignments, and have strong client contact skills. Position requires travel to all 5 boroughs and beyond, occasional night or weekend arraignments, and willingness to handle all pretrial aspects of a criminal case. It also entails office support tasks and paralegal duties. Proficiency in Spanish or other foreign language a plus. Salary commensurate with experience.
