Why I give to the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County

In our country, right now, lawyers are first responders. Unfortunately, so many people in need of legal representation don’t have the means to afford a good attorney. By giving to the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County we give those people a chance to secure qualified legal counsel, learn their rights and have those rights protected.
