Click here to see an inside look at the Texas Comptroller's office! About the Role Working in Fiscal and Agency Affairs is not your typical legal government job. If you want to work in an office where no two days are the same, you enjoy the challenge of tackling novel legal questions, and you want to support the agency as it shapes public policy, this is the ideal position for you. We don't just practice one area of law, we practice many. Our division serves as the agency's in-house counsel and, as you might imagine, our work involves a wide-ranging variety of legal areas - everything from state fiscal law to cybersecurity to federal securities law, plus the random questions that pop up. We support one-of-a-kind programs like the only 529 college savings plans in Texas and the first-in-the nation state-owned bullion depository, and often add new ones like the new broadband development and opioid abatement grant programs. Because nobody does exactly what we do, we find attorneys with: (1) the research skills necessary to dive in and learn new areas, (2) the years of experience needed to spot issues, and (3) the creativity to find solutions. And, because our team genuinely enjoys working together, we want to hire someone who values our collaborative environment. Salary -Range
