The County Counsel's Office of the County of San Mateo is seeking well qualified candidates for the position of Deputy County Counsel II, III, or IV.
THE COUNTY COUNSEL'S OFFICE
The County Counsel's Office is the general counsel for the County of San Mateo and all of its departments, as well as for many school districts and special districts. As a large company might utilize its in-house counsel, our clients rely on our office for the full range of legal services, covering a broad spectrum of practice areas. The office's 30 attorneys handle nearly all of the County's civil litigation, including employment, contract, personal injury, probate matters, civil rights, taxation, and environmental law matters. In addition, our attorneys provide the kind of day-to-day legal services expected from any in-house attorney, ranging from advice and counsel regarding how to navigate emerging areas of law to the negotiation and drafting of legal agreements. We also provide legal counsel to all 24 school districts in the county, as well as the County Office of Education, with respect to both general education and special education issues. As public law attorneys, our work covers a wide array of policy matters that impact the 760,000 residents of San Mateo County, allowing our clients to further the public interest.
We're hiring for two attorney positions. The positions will be a Deputy County Counsel II, III or IV, depending on the selected candidates' experience and qualifications. The starting salary ranges from $125,985 to $221,665 depending upon the level of each position, but the job description and duties remain the same. One position is a "regular" position and the second position is a "limited term" position that has been specially funded for up to three years.
|Deputy County Counsel positions are unclassified (i.e., not subject to Civil Service Rules) and all attorneys are "at-will" employees, serving at the pleasure of the County Counsel. All applications containing the required materials are reviewed and, typically, multiple rounds of oral interviews are conducted with selected applicants. Selection of a candidate for the two positions will be made following oral interviews and reference checks. |
