Our busy, three lawyer criminal and civil rights firm is looking for a committed individual to help us with investigations and data analysis on our high profile cases, including old wrongful homicide convictions, police shootings, inmate abuse, child sex abuse, child pornography, and federal criminal defense. The job will begin mostly remotely and will primarily involve locating and interviewing witnesses and analyzing electronic and video data from investigations. We hope to move back to our Midtown offices over the next few months. Hours are to be determined and hourly rate depends on experience.
The ideal candidate will be tireless, fearless, meticulous, and clever. They will have some background in law enforcement or criminal law. They will be comfortable visiting jails and prisons. They will know New York City like the back of their hand and know how to get around. They will speak and write flawless English and passable Spanish, Chinese, or Russian or some combination. They will know the difference between a Cellebrite report, a DD-5, and a STRmix analysis. Most of all, they will have a passion for helping people who are hurt by the government, either as criminal defendants or as victims of civil rights abuses.
You must have your own computer, phone and good internet access. You must have basic proficiency with Word, Excel, Google Docs, and MacOS or Windows file systems. No particular experience is required, but if you have not worked for a law enforcement agency or law firm before, you should have finished college in a relevant field.
To apply, please send a resume in PDF format and an email describing why you think this position might be right for you. We will not consider materials in other formats or applications with spelling, grammar or formatting errors.
