About Us

Our History

Get the justice you deserve now because Access to Justice is a fundamental human right for all, not a privilege for the few. Fiercely committed to diversity and inclusion, we operate a legal service that offers affordable legal representation in real time, which matches and manages relationships between clients and top experienced attorneys who provide legal representation for personal and business legal matters including civil, criminal, and court appearances, nationwide.

The company helps to build and manage trusted relationships between clients and attorneys for a variety of legal matters including family law such as divorce, child custody and spousal support, landlord tenant issues including rent and eviction, real estate, personal debt, business, criminal defense including midemeanros and felonies, and litigation.

Access to justice and legal literacy are essential for people to know their rights, to understand how the legal process works, and how to engage with courts. Court Buddy was created to educate, advocate, inform, assist, empower and represent people from all races, places and financial situations that need and want justice with trustworthy and effective attorneys with personal and business matters, can afford them, but need affordability and don’t have them because:

  • They don’t understand their legal issues, rights, and needs for help;
  • They don't know if they have a legal case or how the legal system works;
  • They may believe that even with an attorney, they will still lose as the system is unfair;
  • They don’t know how much to pay and fear that attorneys will be too expensive or that they can’t afford them;
  • They don’t know how or where to find the right attorneys;
  • They don’t understand the benefits of having an attorney and how having one would make a difference in their situation; or
  • They tried working with an attorney in the past, but the communication was not good.

We understand the challenges faced by hard-working, experienced attorneys practicing at solo and small firms who want to spend their time helping clients who:

  • Need the specific expertise that the attorney offers;
  • Have legal rights to pursue;
  • Can pay fair prices for the attorney’s services; and
  • Commit to actively communicating and collaborating with their attorneys to understand the legal process and what’s needed of them as a client.
In many situations and cases, not having an attorney can make a dramatic difference. Take the example of low-income tenants facing eviction. Across the United States, almost 90 percent of landlords are represented by a lawyer, while 90 percent of tenants are not. Having a lawyer increases the chances of being able to stay in one's home. When tenants represent themselves in New York City for example, they are evicted almost 50 percent of the cases. With a lawyer, they win 90 percent of the time.

We are backed by some of the most respected investors including: NFX, First Round Capital, LDR Ventures Partners, Kapor Capital, Gingerbread Capital, and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
