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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am student in Cal State East Bay University. Studying Health Science going as a second Bachelor degree. I am from Jordan. Going to graduate in spring 2011. I am a single mother. I have wonderful boy he is 7 years old. I came to US in 2003 with my husband, married for 5 years. I get divorce after 5 years marriage from my husband. I was alone no family and no income. I have hard time all my years’ marriage ended with domestic violent. I contact Legal Aid to get help. They contact me fast and served me with wonderful lawyer Ms "Susan E. Casey" she help me a lot doing my court paper and keep contact me by phone and she even come to my house interviewed me because at the beginning I don't know how to go to her office because my ex husband doesn't allow me to drive far away from my house. She was very nice and any time I need to talk with her or have any problems or advice she responds immediately without any complain. She is a wonderful woman. Without Legal Aid and without lawyer Casey I can't finish my divorce paper and take the custody for my son. I am now almost finishing my study I still need 2 quarter to finish to have my degree in Health Science. I am doing a volunteer work in hospital in Administration department to have some experience help me to find a job after I finish. hopefully I can find Job.

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