Career Opportunities

Each year, our work positively affects tens of thousands of Texans who are fighting to obtain or keep the essentials of life—including home, job, benefits, and family. 
 
Everything we do goes toward our mission to provide high-quality legal representation, advice, advocacy, and education at no cost to our underserved friends and neighbors across the state.

Benefits and Perks

We have a great health plan for full-time employees that includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and short/long term disability coverage. We pay 100% of the employee costs and 50% of family coverage, and employees can purchase additional life insurance coverage. 

Our flexible coverage options allow employees to choose between two medical plans; a Co-Pay Plan or and a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) Plan. For all HDHP Plan members, the organization contributes $2,000+ annually to a Health Savings Account (HSA) while also providing the option for employee contributions to the account. Eligible members also have the option to contribute to medical, dependent daycare, and limited purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Plans. Because health extends outside the doctor's office, we provide our full-time employees with an unlimited membership to a nearby gym.

Additionally, we recognize 14 paid holidays a year, offer generous PTO, provide new parent leave, and help our employees save for retirement. We offer a 403(b) plan for employee contributions—and upon the employee meeting eligibility requirements—we contribute to a Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Arrangement (SEP IRA) on the employee's behalf. Plus, TLSC provides most employees the opportunity to telecommute.
