NC Startup Sees Surge In Traffic As Thousands Seek Help With Pandemic-Fueled Legal Woes

Excerpt from Hypepotamus:

As the pandemic worsens and safety nets vanish, millions are on the brink of financial ruin.

Some are facing the threat of eviction or foreclosure. Most can’t afford a lawyer to represent them.

That’s where Courtroom5 comes in.

This Durham-based, Black-owned startup offers a step-by-step “legal toolbox,” powered by artificial intelligence, for handling your own civil case in the courts.

Get a Fair Hearing in Court

No one expects a fair outcome when one side has a lawyer but the other side doesn’t. Level the playing field with Courtroom5.

“This is not ‘Judge Judy.’ Folks are losing their homes, or having their wages garnished for years on end,” says co-founder Sonja Ebron.

“If we could get everybody a lawyer, that would be great; but that’s not the reality,” Ebron says. “So it’s important for us to be able to stand in the breach.”
