A note from our founder


"LawTrades was started with a defiant spirit and an ambitious objective: to offer the highest quality legal service at an unprecedented price, while leading the way for a new self-directed work model for attorneys.

Every opportunity starts with a problem. Ours was simple: law firms were too expensive and slow. We were law students when we realized there should be a less expensive alternative to law firms and more work flexibility for attorneys. The rest of us had similar experiences whenever a legal issue arose, and we were amazed at how hard it was to find the right lawyer that didn’t leave our wallets empty. Where were the solutions? By circumventing traditional ideologies, embracing the power of technology, and engaging with customers directly, we are able to provide higher quality legal services with stronger retention, at a fraction of the price of traditional law firms. We started LawTrades to build something different."
