Organization: The Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County (www.legalaidsmc.org) is a non-profit law firm that has been providing free legal services to people who cannot afford an attorney. We have been in existence since 1959. Our attorneys represent people in the areas of elder law; housing; family law and domestic violence; government benefits; health and mental health; and special education access and disability rights.
Project Description: The Health Consumer Center of San Mateo County helps resolve legal problems related to health care access for low-income people. The HCC is affiliated with the Health Consumer Alliance (HCA), a statewide partnership of consumer assistance programs. For background information, please go to http://www.legalaidsmc.org/health-consumer-center.html.
We are looking for a highly motivated, energetic, self-starter who cares about health care access and wants to work with a diverse, low-income client population. The right candidate is someone who can juggle multiple responsibilities, work quickly and efficiently, and set up systems to organize large amounts of data. He or she will be comfortable taking a leadership role on projects and ensuring their timely completion, but will also enjoy supporting the staff attorneys’ work.
