LETICIA TOLEDO comes from a working class family and is perhaps the first Latina woman to become a partner in a major San Mateo County law firm. She was the first member of her family to attend college and furthered her education by earning two post-graduate degrees. She has donated countless hours to the AIDS Legal Referral Panel, the Latina Mentoring Program and the Legal Aid Society. As an officer of the Legal Aid Society she was involved in the critical decision-making process of keeping Legal Aid independent and able to continue to serve over 3,000 clients a year with their legal needs. During the Christmas season, she spearheaded her law firm’s adoption of two families from the Samaritan House Adopt-A-Family Program. Because she is concerned with the plight of women raising families on their own, a single mother family is always adopted along with a large family. Leticia has served as an officer of the San Mateo County Lawyers Scholarship Foundation since its creation. The Foundation raises money for scholarships for women who financially struggle to attend law school. This trusted lawyer and dedicated woman has a wicked sense of humor and a fanatical love of baseball.
