Excerpt from Yes Magazine:
Sonja Ebron’s big idea came when she was sued and found she couldn’t afford an attorney on a middle-class income.
“I represented myself, I got crushed by the other side’s lawyers, and the whole thing left a sour taste,” Ebron says.
As a result, Ebron and her wife, Debra Slone, a librarian, created Courtroom5: a do-it-yourself clearinghouse of procedural and legal information for all 50 states, guiding clients through the minutiae of filings.
So far, about 70% of the company’s users have reached what Ebron considers a positive outcome: dismissal, negotiated settlement, victory, or simply “not getting crushed” at trial.
