Excerpt from Nasdaq:
Hi everyone, Spiffy here, your one and only interplanetary journalist reporting from Planet Earth. For my last interview of the week, I’m thrilled to be talking to Sonja Ebron, an entrepreneur working to make the world a better place through her work with Courtroom5, an organization where she is the CEO. Are you ready to be enlightened?
Spiffy: Hey Sonja, welcome to the blog! What is the challenge that Courtroom5 is addressing?
Sonja: Thanks for having me, Spiffy. To answer your question, most people in court can’t afford a lawyer to represent them, but the people who’ve brought them to court have lawyers. That’s what Courtroom5 helps with.
Spiffy: What motivated you to do it?
Sonja: I was sued and needed to defend myself in court, but I couldn’t afford a lawyer. The other side’s lawyer easily defeated me when I represented myself.
Spiffy: That must have been tough. Tell me a little more about how Courtroom5 is working towards a more equitable world.
Sonja: Well, Spiffy, our democracy works better when everyone has access to justice and the ability to be heard in court.
