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
Molly Woodbury, Community Affairs Associate
Alex Lemberg, Housing Attorney
“I can’t imagine working anywhere other than Open Door Legal. On one hand, I get to work with the most incredible clients, whose stories drive and inspire me each and every day. I get to help people who wouldn’t have access to the legal system otherwise accomplish a huge variety of goals. On the other hand, I get to work with the most committed, creative, and brilliant colleagues I could ask for.”
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.”
