We envision a world where there is justice for all, regardless of income.

To achieve that vision, we are committed to fighting corporate abuse and civil inequities in Washington's legal system. Through direct representation and litigation, NWCLC helps thousands of families avoid financial devastation. We also advise consumer lawyers, write amicus briefs, host a prose bankruptcy clinic, offer webinars, and serve as consumer justice advocates.

Why join our team?

We are on the front lines of legislative advocacy, teaming up with legislators and political leaders at the local, state, and national levels. Our victories and hard work continue to help Washingtonians. We already had an exciting and impactful victory when Governor Inslee signed SB 5408 into law, raising the homestead exemption to the county median sale price and helping keep people in their homes during tough times.

We're a young and nimble organization that has an impact larger than our size – reaching a population that often falls through the Justice Gap. Our staff and board have the opportunity to help shape the direction of the organization, the issues we tackle, and the way we grow.
