    Use your land use lawyering skills to serve the public interest in a collaborative private practice setting.

    Goldfarb & Lipman lawyers help affordable housing providers and public agencies to build, rehabilitate, and operate housing that changes lives. We represent cities, counties and other public agencies implementing community economic development activities that provide jobs, improve infrastructure, avoid displacement, and stabilize neighborhoods. Our practice includes land use and real estate assistance for public and private clients in their efforts to revitalize communities. As attorneys, we also are involved with legislative and funding efforts to increase opportunities for people to become self-sufficient, have access to better services, and gain equity.

    The firm is seeking a licensed California attorney with at least 5 years of experience practicing land use and environmental law, who would work in either our Oakland or Los Angeles office. The candidate must have experience advising public and private sector clients on legal issues related to CEQA, NEPA, and California Planning and Zoning Law. A strong working knowledge of municipal law basics (such as the Brown Act, the Political Reform Act and the Public Records Act) and affordable housing streamlining laws (such as SB 35 and the Housing Accountability Act) is desired. The majority of work will be oriented towards advice and counsel, but the attorney may occasionally be called upon to assist in litigation involving land use issues.

    The ideal candidate possesses superior writing skills and has demonstrated a commitment to the public interest, the firm's core practice areas, and the communities we represent. To apply, submit a letter of interest, a resume, a writing sample, and the names of three (3) references to our Recruiting Committee by sending an email to mevans@goldfarblipman.com.

    Goldfarb & Lipman is a woman-owned enterprise, certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and diversity is a core value of the firm. Persons of color, women, LGBTQIA, and persons from various socio-economic and other diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
