Excerpt from ABA Journal Legal Rebels Podcast:
Sonja Ebron and her wife, Debra Slone, saw firsthand how difficult it can be to represent yourself in civil cases through experiences they had being sued and suing others.
Ebron says the couple’s legal battles spanning several different practice areas ultimately prompted them to develop a platform called Courtroom5, an online toolbox that helps self-represented litigants handle their cases from start to finish.
Unlike many other technological tools for pro se litigants, Ebron says Courtroom5 is particularly well suited to help people with complex civil matters and can be utilized by consumers nationwide.
“Our goal is to simplify the process as much as possible for people who first of all really don’t want to be in court and secondly don’t have the legal background,” she says.
