Excerpt from Accounts Recovery:
A new start-up is aiming to help individuals who are being sued, including by debt collectors, but who are not able to hire an attorney to represent themselves in court.
The company, Courtroom5, has attracted attention from start-up investors and accelerators and claims to help seven out of every 10 customers settle or win their cases. Offering tips and courses to help walk individuals through the process of representing themselves in civil court matters, the company recently raised $120,000 from a Tech Stars accelerator in Kansas City and is seeking more investors to help it grow, according to a published report.
The founders of the company said the start-up service could be in even greater demand as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, with millions of people out of work and facing mounting debts.
