Connecting moderate-income people with affordable legal help.

Connecting moderate-income people with affordable legal help.

Moderate-income people, the vast majority in the US, have previously been ignored by the legal industry simply because they can’t afford full representation at astronomical hourly rates. But, in a twist of fate, the legal market can no longer afford to ignore them, as they now comprise a latent $45 billion per year.

Lowboknow doesn’t just bridge a gap experienced by clients. It also provides an important service to solo attorneys and small firms, who often struggle with marketing and regularly need more clients. Attorneys can make their services more affordable and yet highly profitable and efficient through targeted, fixed-fee limited scope assistance (which enables them to accomplish affordability without having to discount their time). Attorneys also sometimes choose to drop their normal hourly fees, when they’re experiencing a lull in business and doing so temporarily makes sense for them. Or they can make their services accessible by charging a contingency fee.
