Review for Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, Redwood City, CA, USA
In a county replete with enormous individual and corporate wealth, San Mateo County still has a significant population who struggles with housing, domestic violence, hunger and a myriad of other issues. Legal Aid really does an amazing job of harnessing the wealth and resources of the County for good use, leveraging volunteer attorneys for direct services as well as the greater community for outreach and fundraising. No matter what your interest is, Legal Aid somehow finds a way to help people help others in truly meaningful ways. Especially as a pro bono attorney, I find their one-on-one attorney mentoring to be invaluable, as it has emboldened me to take complex cases in practice areas I wouldn't want to handle alone.
