Extra-Hire Attorney
Temporary Help
DAC frequently employs extra-hire attorneys. An extra-hire position is a temporary position filled for a maximum duration of six months in a 12-month period, unless specifically extended by the human resources director. Periodically, we post active recruitment announcements with local law schools as well as on the county’s Human Resources website. For interim hirings, we also keep a roster of interested applicants who have submitted applications. Our extra-hire attorneys generally provide representation in our misdemeanor, juvenile delinquency, family support / civil contempt and BECCA units.
