FAMILY COURT DIVISION CHIEF

Salary: $185,019

Work Location: 100 Church Street, New York, NY

 The New York City Law Department is accepting applications for the position of Chief of the office’s Family Court Division.  The Family Court Division plays a critical role in promoting the well-being of the City’s children and protecting the general public. The Family Court Division has offices in all five boroughs and is comprised of approximately 300 attorneys and support professionals.  The Division has two distinct practice areas:  Interstate Child Support Unit (ICS) and the Juvenile Delinquency Prosecution Unit (JD).

The JD unit investigates alleged juvenile delinquency matters from all five boroughs that are referred to the office and adjudicates the matters where appropriate with the goal of putting services in place to rehabilitate the young respondents.  Juvenile delinquency matters involve youth ages 7 to 17 who have been arrested for conduct that would constitute a crime if they were adults. The Family Court Division is at the forefront of the City’s juvenile justice reform efforts and works closely with other agencies responsible for formulating and administering City policies and programs relating to juvenile crime.  The ICS unit appears on behalf of out-of-state custodial parent petitioners who are seeking to establish paternity and obtain child support from New York City residents. In addition, a custodial parent who lives in New York City may seek the Unit’s assistance in filing for child support from parents who live outside the state and the country.

The position of Division Chief is based in Manhattan and involves citywide travel and requires working/availability in the evening hours and on weekends as needed.

Duties include:

  • Serve as the chief legal, strategic, and policy advisor to the Corporation Counsel on all juvenile justice matters.
  • Direct and oversee the Family Court Borough Chiefs who are responsible for borough operations.
  • Develop and oversee implementation of division-wide policies, procedures and protocols.
  • Collaborate with State and City agencies in the development and implementation of services and approaches to support youth and families that interact with both the JD and ICS Units.
  • Engage in strategic planning and decision-making regarding the work and management of the Division, including by reviewing and analyzing data generated by the division and external agencies.
  • Support the daily operations of the division.
  • Guide the overall strategy of the division, including with respect to diversion and rehabilitation of court-involved youth.
  • Supervise the Deputy Division Chiefs and the Chiefs of the Training, Major Case, and Special Victims Units.
  • Consult on cases, as needed, including reviewing motions, search warrants, and disclosure letters.

Applicants must have substantial experience in criminal and/or family court litigation, and must demonstrate a history of successful supervision and management of attorneys and professional staff.  Applicants must be admitted to practice law in the State of New York.

The deadline to apply is February 22, 2020.
