Review for Bay Area Legal Aid, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked on three pro bono dissolution cases for legal aid, involving custody, child support and domestic violence. It's heart warming work if you ever starting to feel like an attorney droid, and a way to learn about an area of the law that you might not be familiar with. I was not familiar with family law prior to volunteering, but Genevieve was a great resource and was always quick to answer any of my questions. It feels great to help the clients move on with their lives, and all the clients were very appreciative.

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

Seeing my clients move on with their lives after obtaining a good result.

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

have the California Bar make it mandatory that attorneys use their MCLE hours volunteering at organizations like Bay Legal instead of attending workshops or taking inane online courses.

Role:  Volunteer & pro bono legal representation in three dissolution cases.
