The South Florida Water Management District is a regional governmental agency that oversees the water resources in the southern half of the state, covering 16 counties from Orlando to the Florida Keys and serving a population of 8.7 million residents. It is the oldest and largest of the state’s five water management districts. Our mission is to safeguard and restore South Florida’s water resources and ecosystems, protect our communities from flooding, and meet the region’s water needs while connecting with the public and stakeholders.
The District’s Office of Counsel is seeking to hire an attorney with practice experience in Florida Administrative Law. Although the most ideal candidate will have extensive experience in defending or adjudicating cases before the Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), the Office of Counsel will also consider applicants with less DOAH experience. Superior analytical and writing skills with a keen eye for details is a must, regardless of experience level. Ability to work in a collaborative, diverse environment is also required.
