- “I saw clients struggling with things where I thought, there’s got to be something out there that we can do as paralegals… I’ve always thought that paralegals had the skills and the knowledge and the training experience to help those people who couldn’t afford lawyers, to just navigate their way through the system…”
- “As a new business owner in the litigation support and the legal technology space, I feel like I’m in a position to more than just talk about the challenges and barriers and actually do something about it.”
- “If you’re looking at the front-end user and you’re looking at a self-represented litigant, technology is the biggest challenge, I think, because you’ve got people who first of all don’t know how to navigate their way through the legal system and now they’ve got technology that their not really sure how to use.”
