Job Number:  01-230126-03: Managing Attorney for Eviction Defense Team


Company Name:   Heartland Center for Jobs and Freedom, Inc.



Managing Attorney for Eviction Defense Team

In December of 2021, the Heartland Center played a pivotal role in winning Right to Counsel for all Kansas City tenants facing eviction. Now, we are expanding our team of attorneys to help carry out the work. We started doing eviction work in 2017 and have been on the frontlines of the eviction crisis ever since. We are finally seeing some real relief for tenants, who were previously evicted swiftly and en masse. We have stopped nearly 500 evictions from occurring since 2020 and have helped other organizations stop many more.

We are seeking an experienced attorney to oversee a talented team of four eviction defense lawyers housed within the Heartland Center.


A brief overview of the position and duties includes:

• Learn and master Missouri housing law;
• Meet weekly with the eviction defense team to conduct case reviews;
• Assign cases to attorneys;
• Help attorneys develop legal strategy around their cases;
• Review and revise attorneys’ court fillings;
• Handle bench trials and motion hearings with attorneys;
• Help identify legal challenges that can strengthen tenants’ rights and establish favorable law in the courts of appeal;
• Help coordinate court hearings and tenant outreach.

Attorney will need to be licensed in Missouri, have at least five years of litigation experience, and be able to work with populations in crisis. Trial experience is a major bonus. This is a full-time position.

The Heartland Center does eviction work because it so deeply impacts low-wage workers, who constantly fall behind on rent despite working hard for multi-billion dollar industries. It is our mission to create opportunities for low-wage workers to learn and exercise their rights, realize their collective power, and develop the leadership skills necessary to advocate for a racially and economically just society.

Heartland Center for Jobs and Freedom, Inc.  is an equal opportunity employer and complies with all applicable laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, age, ancestry, disability, status as a veteran, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, gender identity, or gender expression.

Position pays competitively, with a minimum of $70,000 salary, healthcare benefits, retirement, paid sick days, paid vacation, and paid holidays.
