The New York State Office of the Attorney General (OAG) is hiring a team of talented and motivated attorneys to work on a statewide initiative to protect New Yorkers from gun violence. Recently, Governor Hochul signed Executive Order 19 which directs the New York State Police (NYSP) to file Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs).

These positions offers an exciting opportunity for attorneys to help shape the State’s practice in this new and important area of the law.

The newly hired attorneys will be part of the inaugural cohort of the OAG’s Extreme Risk Protection Order Unit. Attorneys will represent the NYSP in obtaining ERPOs, civil court-issued orders pursuant to CPLR Section 6343, that prohibit people who are found to be dangerous to themselves or others from temporarily purchasing or possessing a firearm, rifle, or shotgun. This is a fast-paced practice area and attorneys will gain experience conducting witness interviews and preparing for testimony, evidentiary hearings and other hearing-related tasks. Attorneys will be responsible for identifying and gathering relevant records and preparing witnesses in a compressed timeframe.

The selected attorneys will be part of a motivated team of colleagues doing this work throughout the State, sharing experience, training and resources. These positions will be part of the OAG’s Regional Offices in Binghamton, Buffalo, Plattsburgh, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown and Westchester. The selected attorneys will be hired as Assistant Attorneys General (AAGs) and report to the attorneys in charge (AAGICs) of the Regional Offices. These positions involve regular travel within the attorney’s designated region for court appearances and witness interviews and may include occasional overnight trips.

In addition to their work on ERPO matters, the AAGs’ duties will include occasionally representing the State in other types of defensive and affirmative litigation. The Regional Offices represent the State, its agencies and officers in a wide range of federal and state court litigation, affirmative and defensive.

Suitable candidates for the AAG positions must possess the following minimum qualifications:

  • At least two (2) years of post-graduate legal experience is required;
  • Prior litigation experience is a plus;
  • Strong writing, organizational, interpersonal communication and problem-solving skills; and
