About ten years ago LAM guided me through a divorce when I was a single mother, working full-time and going to school to finish my MA. They made the process stress free and secured my child support and a fair settlemlent. More recently LAM helped me file a work-related restraining order to protect employees at our school. I was a nervous wreck through the whole thing and even had to face the individual in front of the court, but LAM held my hand all the way. I have immense respect and gratitude for their quality services.
Our organization has always received great service from LAM. They have helped us advocate for low-income residents of Marin City for many years. Their attorneys are committed to their clients. We are happy to be one of their clients.
Legal Aid of Marin has been my sole and most valueable source for legal counsel in order to fight redevelopment plans by a large out of state real estate investment trust which seeks to turn affordable housing into luxury apartments at rates most current residents will not be able to requalify for. LAM has been responsive to my inquiries and have come to the site to explain legal matters to fellow residents. While I have given what I can afford to LAM for their counsel and time, I feel strongly that money has not been a condition for my receiving needed counsel and support. Even a paid attorney - if I could afford one - might not be as responsive to this client and his fellow tenants in their fight for fair treatment for being forced out of their apartment homes.
