Join our team and transform San Francisco
We believe that when everyone has access to the law, poverty will be dramatically reduced. That’s why we’re pioneering the country’s first system of universal access to legal services.
We believe that with enough passion, anything is possible.
The key to our team’s effectiveness is a positive atmosphere. That’s why values are such a tremendous part of our work. Our passion, grit, dynamism, teamwork, and care for our clients help us achieve the impossible. We care about accountability.
Thanks to our driven team, we have such successful case outcomes. In fact, for every dollar we spend on our services, we generate $21 in benefit for our clients and their community. That makes us one of the most cost-effective social services out there.
What it’s like to work here
Laura Turner, Manager of Strategic Growth
“One of my favorite things about working at Open Door Legal is that we are truly encouraged to bring our whole selves to work–funny, passionate, tired, honest. This makes space for meaningful relationships among the staff, and a deep sense of joy as we work together in the pursuit of justice.”
Philip Green, Civil Litigation Attorney
“I have been practicing law for almost thirty years now. I have worked for big law firms, small ones, and as a sole practitioner. Easily, the most rewarding, satisfying job I have ever had is with Open Door Legal. It is a fantastic organization with stellar leadership, and my colleagues are genuinely caring, passionate people focused on fulfilling Open Door Legal’s mission. And that mission, providing legal access to all, is as admirable as it comes.“
Whitney Tu, Director of Talent and Culture
“I’ve always wanted to work in an office where people not only whole-heartedly believed in the mission, but in one another. That is true at ODL. There is a very clear-eyed, shared view of the future: universal access to legal services. Each of us is a better person because of our work together.”
