I have it on good authority that the state of Montana is still hiring Public Defenders all around the state. For you urban types, that includes at least one opening in the “big city” of Billings. Starting pay is around $43-44k/year and up, plus benefits (which are quite good). My understanding is that they need people asap.
After just two months I can definitely recommend the job. You might even get to work on cases like the latest big one in our office. [tags]montana, Billings, public defender[/tags]
