Review for OneJustice, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One Justice facilitated our organization's first ever board evaluation survey and retreat -- a terrific experience. The legal services field is extraordinarily fortunate to have the professional resource that One Justice provides -- the staff is exceptional and understands how to help our organization improve and do the best job we can for our clients.

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

the advice and counsel they provided to our legal services agency's board of directors.

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

encourage them to continue to tailor general non-profit governance principles to the needs of legal services agencies. More info on non-profit law firm management and executive hiring and evaluation would be very helpful.
