Website Yuma County Legal Defender

Yuma County, AZ has recently raised its salaries across the board. The Office of the Legal Defender is hiring attorneys for indigent defense. We have positions from Attorney I to Senior Trial Attorney. We are also looking for recent graduates, or those taking the July bar exam. Arizona is a UBE state, and has reciprocity with Illinois.

Yuma is on the bank of the Colorado River, 2.5 hours to San Diego or Phoenix, 20 minutes to Mexico. We have a small, friendly office. The jail is 100 steps away, and the Courthouse is across the street. Low cost of living, great benefits. After one year, Yuma County will also pay up to $6,500 per year toward student loans.

Attorney I starts at $81,515; Senior Attorney requires a minimum of 7 years of experience and starts at $110,00 or more DOQ. We are also hiring bar candidates who are planning to take the July bar, $60,000 per year until you get your bar results.
