My attorney was so wonderful to me. She was extremely professional but also very compassionate toward my situation. She went above and beyond to help me access programs and resources I needed, even if they weren’t directly related to my legal case. It was fantastic how she connected with me as a human being, a person, a woman and helped me resolve many problems in my life. I’m convinced Legal Aid attorneys work from their hearts.
