Recently, I had the great opportunity to make a short film about Legal Aid of Marin. This is not your ordinary non-profit. The team at legal aid honestly enjoy coming to work. They love to help others and the people that receive their help think of legal aid as their guardians of justice. I spent many hours interviewing staff attorneys, volunteers, board members, and clients and everybody felt that legal aid made a difference in their lives. They certainly made a difference in my professional and personal lives and I consider them like family. Thank you Legal Aid of Marin.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

winning cases! It was the greatest feeling to witness clients pick up their settlement checks at legal aid.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give the staff a vacation!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The staff at legal aid are inspiring to watch.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, sweet, funny, happy, intelligent people who love what they do.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a significant change in the live of underrepresented Marin residents.

Ways to make it better...

My experience was the best. Spend some time at legal aid and you'll feel good about yourself.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

they could help more people if they had more money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Marin needs this non-profit, plain and simple.

As an agency that is housed with Legal Aid in the Marin Justice Center, we have had the opportunity to participate in a collaborative process that streamlines access to legal services for everyone. Legal Aid is an integral part of this collaborative. The service they provide to clients is invaluable and their positive impact on the community is immeasurable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Hard working and dedicated.
