Legal Aid of Marin partners with One Justice for Summer Clinics

Free clinics in San Geronimo, Tomales and Point Reyes Station.
LAM and OneJustice's Justice Bus Project will be in Tomales from 1-5 p.m. on Thursday July 10.

Legal Aid of Marin is partnering with the OneJustice’s Justice Bus® Project  this summer to host a series of free legal clinics in the communities of San Geronimo, Point Reyes Station and Tomales. Pro bono attorneys will answer questions about a wide variety of legal issues from housing and employment to consumer debt and senior legal issues. All three events are open to the general public.

These free legal clinics are part of OneJustice’s award-winning Justice Bus Project, which supports and expands the capacity of legal services organizations like Legal Aid of Marin to serve clients by connecting urban law student and attorney volunteers with rural and isolated communities in need.

“Rural Californians face barriers to basic services that most of us take for granted, like assistance with housing, employment, consumer debt, and other civil legal matters,” said Renée Schomp, OneJustice’s Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellow. Last year, the Justice Bus Project and Legal Aid of Marin served 60 individuals over the course of two one-day clinics in San Geronimo and Point Reyes Station. This year, the program has expanded to include a third clinic in Tomales.
