SADO Seeks Mitigation Specialist

Apply by August 26, 2019

SADO expects openings for Mitigation Specialists in two units. The Direct Appeals Unit represents individuals who appeal their felony convictions and sentences. Appellate relief often requires SADO attorneys to return to the trial court to advocate for clients at resentencing, with the assistance of the Mitigation Specialist. The Juvenile Lifer Unit represents individuals who were unconstitutionally sentenced to life without parole for crimes they committed as children and who are now entitled to new sentences and eligible for an opportunity for release. Although there are many similarities between the two units in the work performed, projects in the Juvenile Lifer Unit generally tend to be longer term, involve lengthier records, and entail far more complex sentencing hearings.

The Direct Appeals Unit position is a permanent position, while the Juvenile Lifer Unit is funded year to year by the State, with funding expected for at least three more years. This posting is for full and part-time positions in both units.
