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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County (Legal Aid) is one of the finest and most beneficial community organizations of which I have been associated. Over 3 years ago, I volunteered at one of Legal Aid's Housing Clinic in Redwood City. Many people know of Legal Aid, its lawyers and volunteers. They trust Legal Aid not just because it is free to the masses that come for help, some, in a last ditch effort to avoid an unlawful eviction. They trust Legal Aid because they know paid staff or not, sound legal advice and critical help and guidance will be found at the clinic. For many who cannot afford a private attorney to help them defend themselves, Legal Aid is a means to level the playing field and find a way to win. I am so proud to be a volunteer; it is good work and every single lawyer who has a few hours a week to spare (or not) should make time to give back to community and to the law by giving of themselves and the causes so well represented by Legal Aid
