Blaze Of Glory – Courtroom5 Class of Fire Awards winners

Excerpt from The Business Journals:

The Fire Awards are Inno’s premier recognition for the companies and people setting the local innovation economy ablaze – even in light of unpredictable challenges. From a startup trying to expand economic equity to minority businesses to another trying to arm everyone with the tools they need in court, this year’s startups are a diverse bunch – all pushing ahead in an uncertain time.

The Durham startup started out of the frustration of its co-founder, Sonja Ebron, who found herself in court without a lawyer. The complexities of the legal system were so frustrating that she and Debra Slone cofounded Courtroom5 to make justice accessible.

“In societies where access to justice doesn’t exist, you really ultimately have a problem with your democracy,” Ebron has said.

The average person, aided by Courtroom5, can do upward of 80 percent of the work a lawyer can do.
