  • Deputy Attorney General for Public Advocacy The Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia (OAG) is seeking candidates for the position of Deputy Attorney General for Public Advocacy. The Deputy is the lead attorney in the Public Advocacy Division. This is a new Division within OAG intended to focus and elevate the Office’s affirmative public interest civil litigation practice. Because the Division is new, the Deputy will be responsible for helping to shape the Division and the nature of its work. Specific duties include managing the Housing and Community Justice Section (formerly the Neighborhood and Victim Services Section within the Public Safety Division), led by the Section’s Chief. That Section works with community groups, tenant organizations, and District government agencies to address nuisance properties, litigates cases essential to protecting affordable housing and tenants’ rights, and may expand to litigating cases to protect residents from other abuses such as wage theft.
