As lawyers, our jobs can involve clients who need community services along with their legal services. When such issues come up, you will be happy to know there is a website that lists resources to connect someone to vital services in Marin County.
Are you representing:
- Someone in need of credentials to navigate to their next career? Careerpointnorthbay.org
- A woman over 50 who is trying to enter the workforce? YWCA Fifty+ 415-479-9922
- An older adult who is looking for transportation? Marin Access 415-454-0902

These are just a few examples of the extensive resources Marin County has that might make an enormous difference in the lives of your clients. A comprehensive guide to the available resources in Marin County can be found here: Marin County Community Resource Guide. You are also welcome to call my office, as often I can help connect you to the right person to address your client’s non-legal needs.
