Position Information

Staff Attorney
The Public Policy Litigation & Law (PPL&L) Department of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) seeks applicants for the position of Staff Attorney. This position can be located either in New York City or Washington, DC.

Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s leading health care providers, educators, and advocates, serving women, trans and nonbinary patients, men, teens, and families. Our 49 locally governed affiliates operate more than 600 health centers, serving the diverse needs of each community. For over 100 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to improve and promote the health and safety of the communities and patients we serve, prevent unintended pregnancies, and guarantee that safe and legal abortion services are available to all patients who need them.

PPL&L represents PPFA and Planned Parenthood affiliates in policy matters that affect the mission of the organization. We conduct litigation in state and federal courts across the country, and we provide legal advice to PPFA and Planned Parenthood affiliates about legal issues such as pending legislation, regulatory matters, and activities of those opposed to Planned Parenthood that interfere with our ability to provide comprehensive reproductive health care.

Reporting to one of the Senior Directors of PPL&L, the Staff Attorney’s primary responsibilities revolve around conducting significant and high visibility litigation on behalf of PPFA or Planned Parenthood affiliates. The Staff Attorney will also be engaged in work related to pending legislation and regulatory matters. The PPL&L staff is split between New York City and Washington, DC. Regardless of where the Staff Attorney locates, they would work extensively with the entire PPL&L team, as well as with other staff at PPFA.
