What People are Saying About Legal Aid...
I have been volunteering in the Share of Cost Clinic organized regularly by the Legal Aid Society for years. It is a very well organized program, with good training and training refreshers at the beginning of every clinic, and there are always attorneys around to help with questions you have as they come up. I would definitely encourage others to work with this great nonprofit organization. - Legal Aid Volunteer
I had 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 the Legal Aid Society 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! - Friend of a Legal Aid Client
My law firm and I have worked directly with the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County for many years. The staff attorneys are excellent, not only are they very knowledgeable but they mentor and assist the volunteer attorneys. My volunteer experience has been very rewarding and would strongly encourage other legal professionals in the area to work witih this organization. - Legal Aid Volunteer
