MUNICIPAL COURT COORDINATOR

The Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC) is looking for a Municipal Court Coordinator, which is a full-time employee (FTE) position. The Coordinator manages and maintains two programs within the Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel: The Municipal Court Program (MCP) and the Municipal Court-Appointed Counsel Program (MCCP). The MCP evaluates court-appointed counsel in Colorado’s municipal courts pursuant to C.R.S. § 13-10-114.5 by assessing the independence and competence of court-appointed counsel.  The MCCP is a program established pursuant to C.R.S. § 21-3-103(1)(c) that provides court-appointed counsel to contracted Municipal Courts.

 

In this role, the Municipal Court Coordinator will strive to ensure that court-appointed clients charged with a municipal ordinance violation that carries any possibility of incarceration are represented by independent and constitutionally competent counsel. Additionally, the Coordinator will develop collaborative working relationships with municipal court staff and court-appointed counsel and prepare and present informational and educational workshops to a variety of stakeholders. The Coordinator will also help to provide training and ensure the availability of beneficial resources to court-appointed counsel.

 

 

About Us:

 

The Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC) is the legislatively created state agency responsible for providing client services and legal representation for indigent individuals (adults and youth) when the state has charged them with a criminal or delinquent act, and the state public defender’s office has a conflict of interest. Additionally, with respect to municipal courts, the OADC evaluates participating attorneys for independence and competence and contracts with municipalities to provide court-appointed counsel. The OADC accomplishes this by contracting with over 400 private attorneys and another 500 legal service providers (social workers, paralegals, investigators, legal researchers, case assistants, legal interns, etc.) to provide client services on an hourly basis. Our fundamental belief is that good holistic legal defense teams produce good results for our clients.

 

Mission Statement:

 

The mission of the Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC), through the practice of holistic public defense, is to help adults and children who the government has charged with criminal and delinquent offenses. The OADC’s holistic practice model fosters ethical, informed, and standard-driven best practices in public defense. The OADC allocates resources in a manner intentionally designed to rebalance the disparate power wielded by the government in the criminal legal system. OADC advocates for every client’s inherent worth and dignity by centering the client’s lived experiences and voice to achieve the best legal outcome.

 

The OADC is dedicated to zealous, client-centered advocacy rooted in social justice, integrity, and humility. We recognize that we are working within a broken and racist criminal legal system. Public defense advocates play an essential role in challenging bias and disparity within the courtroom, within our offices, and within ourselves. Statistical data and experiences support that there is a disparate presence of violent policing, over-charging, and harsher sentencing outcomes for Colorado’s people of color and other vulnerable populations. The OADC is unwavering in its support of decarceration, the decriminalization of youth, and equity within the criminal legal system.

 

About the Job:

 

Pursuant to C.R.S. § 13-10-114.5 the Municipal Court Coordinator will ensure the independence and competence of court-appointed counsel in Municipal Courts that have requested such evaluation services. This includes, but is not limited to, the following duties:

·        ·       Review municipal court practices to ensure court-appointed counsel is free from judicial and political influence; 

·        ·       Evaluate court-appointed counsel at least once every three years through court observations, evaluation of pleadings, review of court and billing records, and solicitation of feedback from third parties and review of other relevant activities;

·        ·       Develop collaborative working relationships with court officials to obtain input relevant to court-appointed counsel evaluations.

·         

The Municipal Court Coordinator will research and analyze relevant criminal law, including case law, statutes, ordinances, social science research, implementation of multidisciplinary teamwork, and other practice areas related to municipal defense to further support court-appointed counsel. This includes, but is not limited to, the following duties:

·        ·       Understand and make municipal defenders aware of new case law, statutory changes, ethical issues, and professional responsibility rules affecting municipal defense;

·        ·       Encourage connections between municipal defenders and contract forensic social workers and clinical advocates, resource advocates, investigators, paralegals and other necessary contractors;

·        ·       Review social science research that affects municipal defense and assist attorneys in incorporating relevant research into their representation;  

·        ·       Incorporate evidence-based practices and research into municipal defense to increase efficiency and improve outcomes for indigent municipal court clients, including training around holistic, multidisciplinary teamwork;

·        ·       Create and make available resources to municipal defenders to improve their practice and act as a conduit to connect municipal defenders.

·         

The Municipal Court Coordinator will oversee the application and interview process for attorneys applying to represent court-appointed clients in municipal courts that have contracted with the OADC pursuant to C.R.S. § 21-2-103(1)(c). This includes, but is not limited to, the following duties:

·        ·       In collaboration with the OADC Director and Deputy Director, determine and administrate contracts executed pursuant to C.R.S. § 21-2-103(1)(c);

·        ·       Review, for renewal, OADC contractors assigned to the contracted municipal courts through court observations, evaluation of pleadings, review of court and billing records, and solicitation of third-party feedback;

·        ·       Collaborate with the contracted municipalities to ensure that contractors are timely assigned to cases and dockets are covered.

·         

Lastly, miscellaneous duties include, but are not limited to, the following:

·        ·       Assist municipal defender contractors, as requested, with case strategy, issues surrounding client relationships, developing a defense team, connection to resources, Agency policies, ethical questions, and technology;

·        ·       Travel to multiple judicial districts annually to meet with contractors, court-appointed counsel, and judicial personnel;

·        ·       Collaborate with other stakeholders and organizations to efficiently address common issues;

·        ·       Assist, as needed, with Agency budget preparation and legislative efforts affecting municipal courts;

·        ·       Assist in the creation and distribution of trainings for municipal defenders; 

·        ·       Attend meetings and trainings as required.

 

Other duties deemed necessary to help fulfill our Mission.

 

The OADC is a collaborative workspace designed for people who thrive in a team environment.  This position reports to the Deputy Director and will engage with all members of the OADC team.

ATTORNEY DEVELOPMENT COORDINATOR

 

Are you passionate about social justice reform and committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity? Do you want to improve access to justice for people living in rural communities of Colorado? Do you believe that holistic, team-oriented representation is essential for all people accused of criminal or delinquent acts?  If so, then this is a great opportunity to make a difference! The Attorney Development Coordinator position is a dynamic opportunity for an experienced, mission-driven individual to serve as an ambassador for the Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel and drive our efforts to recruit and develop diverse and highly talented people to ensure a strong pipeline of private contractors devoted to team representation of our clients. 

 

About Us:

 

The Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC) is the legislatively created state agency responsible for providing client services and legal representation for indigent individuals (adults and youth) when the state has charged them with a criminal or delinquent act and the state public defender’s office has a conflict of interest.  The OADC accomplishes this by contracting with over 400 private attorneys and another 500 legal service providers (social workers, paralegals, investigators, legal researchers, case assistants, legal interns, etc.) to provide client services on an hourly basis. Our fundamental belief is that good holistic legal defense teams produce good results for our clients.

 

Mission Statement:

 

The mission of the Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC), through the practice of holistic public defense, is to help adults and children whom the government has charged with criminal and delinquent offenses. The OADC’s holistic practice model fosters ethical, informed, and standard-driven best practices in public defense. The OADC allocates resources in a manner intentionally designed to rebalance the disparate power wielded by the government in the criminal legal system. The OADC advocates for every client’s inherent worth and dignity by centering the client’s lived experiences and voice to achieve the best legal outcome.

 

The OADC is dedicated to zealous, client-centered advocacy rooted in social justice, integrity, and humility. We recognize that we are working within a broken and racist criminal legal system. Public defense advocates play an essential role in challenging bias and disparity within the courtroom, within our offices, and within ourselves. Statistical data and experiences support that there is a disparate presence of violent policing, over-charging, and harsher sentencing outcomes for Colorado’s people of color and other vulnerable populations. The OADC is unwavering in its support of decarceration, the decriminalization of youth, and equity within the criminal legal system.

 

About the Job:

 

The OADC has long recognized that a pool of diverse, dedicated, passionate, and excellent legal teams throughout the entire state of Colorado is essential to the mission of our Agency. The Attorney Development Coordinator is a new position created to develop and implement career pathways to ensure our contractor pool provides all our clients with excellent advocacy. The focus of the position will be to design and implement pathways to practice for new and existing private attorneys who want to contract with the OADC to represent indigent people accused of criminal or delinquent acts in all stages of the proceedings (i.e., trial, appellate, and postconviction). A significant focus will be to foster and support people who want to live and practice in rural areas of Colorado (Greater Colorado).  Another significant focus will be increasing the number of practitioners who identify with the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community.

 

This is a dynamic new position where duties will evolve. The successful applicant should expect to receive any other duties deemed necessary to help fulfill our mission.  Essential duties include recruitment, training, and evaluation of undergraduate, law students, and newer attorneys to our community who are interested in a career improving systemic social justice and helping people accused of criminal or delinquent acts. 

 

Recruitment: Developing and expanding existing contacts with local and national undergraduate and law schools, including HBCUs, HSIs, law student associations, colleges and universities, bar associations and affinity groups, and other stakeholders such as community organizations that share our mission.  This person will recruit people who can assist OADC contracting attorneys and people who will become OADC contracting attorneys in a manner intentionally designed to ensure an adequate array of service providers in all areas of Colorado and that the diversity of the service providers adequately reflects the diversity of the clients ultimately served. Recruitment includes in-person communication with students and academic personnel, video-conferencing, and static web-based written, video, and audio materials. As such, strong communication skills are vital to this position.

 

Training and Development: The successful applicant will be expected to engage in direct mentorship of students and practitioners as well as facilitate mentoring relationships with existing contract legal service providers.  This person will be responsible for designing and implementing a searchable on-line interface where attorneys can locate case assistants and legal researchers in an efficient and effective manner. This person will work with the OADC Training Director to ensure that all service providers have access to relevant training materials to ensure attorney competency with holistic team representation. As such, strong legal experience and a passion for teaching and encouraging other people to excel are essential.

 

Evaluation: The Attorney Development Coordinator will be expected to observe legal service providers in and out of court, review written materials, and provide positive feedback in a manner designed to lead others to success.  So again, legal experience, strong communication skills, and excellent interpersonal skills are important characteristics for this position. 

 

Other duties deemed necessary to help fulfil our mission:

 

The OADC is a collaborative agency designed for people who thrive in a team environment.  This position reports to the Coordinator of Legal Resources and Technology and will engage with all members of the OADC team.

 

About You:

 

Our ideal candidate will be passionate about team-oriented, holistic public defense and zealous in their commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and empathy.  There is a preference for a person who:

 

·        Has experience in all facets of practice in the criminal legal system including trial, appellate, and postconviction (including conviction integrity review) stages;

·        Has affinity for those practicing in rural jurisdictions;

·        Has a proven track record of training, teaching, or mentorship;

·        Is creative, self-motivated, and able to work in a decentralized environment without close supervision;
