Review for Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

A friend who ended up in a homeless shelter for a variety of financial, physical and personal issues. This person was disabled and could not work. He had applied for early social security and denied 3 times.
It was only when Legal Aid of San Mateo County visited the homeless shelter and provided assistance to appeal the Social Security decision. This assistance including counseling and referring an attorney.
This friend did win the appeal, was able to leave the homeless shelter and move into his own place.
This person is in a safe home, receiving Medicare for his disability and in a much better place.

Thanks a bunch! Thank you Legal Aid for the great work!
