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.

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.
