Yet Another Reminder of Why We Do this Work

Legal Aid at Work clients winning UI appeal at UC Irvine


Just in time for this year’s Annual Fund Campaign, we have yet another example of how we’re #PuttingJusticetoWork:

One of our clinic students from UC Irvine School of law, Jier Dong, just won 100% of his appeal for our client, Marie! This decision not only secures a crucial economic lifeline for this single mother of two boys, but also prevents the potentially catastrophic need for Marie repay benefits if she had lost.

Jier had this to say about his victory: “Now that her case is won, I truly feel like an advocate. The feelings are phenomenal and further drive me to run (not walk) down the path of public interest law.”

Please donate to Legal Aid at Work so we can continue to help clients like Marie, and so we can continue to train the next generation of public interest lawyers!
