Opening Up The Law
Equality under the law undergirds our society. We believe that when rights are assumed but somehow can’t be invoked, the result is waste: People’s opportunities aren’t mapping onto their aspirations properly, creating widespread inefficiencies. Opening up the law—making it convenient and affordable—doesn’t cheapen the profession, nor is it an altruistic write-off with a burn rate. Delivering legal help to those who normally might find the business intimidating and cost-prohibitive contributes to a long-tail, positive feedback loop for customer acquisition and revenue, and for the economy as a whole in challenging times. When innovations are sought in partnership with our clients—progressive firms and tech startups--it’s like having a focused, fully funded R&D department for professional law, and with quicker ROI.
To serve our customers, and theirs in turn, we’ve implemented Software as a Service and clever marketing to help make legal forms and documents easily available; to resolve traffic fines more quickly; to provide affordable legal subscriptions to contract workers, creatives, and entrepreneurs; and to expedite immigration cases. These are under-served consumers who’ll retain legal help again. We’ve developed online and mobile products that help veterans secure earned benefits, and bar associations mentor a new generation of public defenders. In New York City, we’ve established https://evictionfighter.com/ a free service to help renters establish their rights and communicate with their landlords. People who can stay in their homes build businesses, raise families, and will reinvest in a legal system that’s invested in them.
