Review for Legal Aid Of Marin, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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

Community organizing and advocacy to support the elderly and immigrant populations in Marin.

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

support the Executive Director with fundraising to preserve his many talents and energy for community outreach and program development, which he excels.

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

Paul Cohen's leadership and tireless hard work.

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

attentive, thorough and calm!

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

spend less time raising annual funds and put more of their efforts into services.

Ways to make it better...

the ED wasn't so stretched

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
