I’ve been involved in the Legal Aid Share-of-Cost clinics for many years. They are one of the most rewarding pro bono activities I do because I get a chance to sit down and talk directly with seniors and disabled adults about helping them get the medical insurance coverage they need. And I get hear some amazing stories from them – they often make me laugh, and they are always so relieved and thankful for any advice I can give.
The Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County provides legal services to the members of our community who are the most needy- the elderly, the homeless, the unemployed with children, the disabled- who simply cannot afford legal representation, and they provide these services at a high quality level. The attorneys and staff at Legal Aid are some of the most dedicated professionals you will find in a non-profit.
Legal Aid is deeply rooted in San Mateo County legal community. It attracts the faithful support of lawyers because of the direct legal services it provides for the county citizens.
