NEW YORK, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jurbid, an online legal marketplace, announces the launch of its platform today.
As a Public Benefit Corporation, Jurbid aims to tackle the so-called "Access to Justice Gap" in the United States. According to the American Bar Association 80% of legal needs are unmet and the United States ranks last among developed nations in providing its citizens' access to lawyers. Jurbid's mission to address this gap is a core component of the company's identity.
To reduce the gap, Americans looking for legal help can hire a lawyer in three simple steps. First, they post their case on Jurbid's intuitive and secure platform for free. Second, they receive and review proposals that include the price of representation from a number of qualified lawyers. All lawyers on its platform passed Jurbid's rigorous professional background screening. Lastly, they hire the lawyer of their choice, the one who fits their needs. The three-step process streamlines the search for a lawyer, provides transparency, introduces competition, and also reduces the intimidation factor of reaching out to lawyers.
"We started Jurbid not to exploit a market opportunity but rather to fix a social issue," said Aydin Bonabi, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder. "Too many Americans live under the specter of losing money, their homes, and even their children, all because they lack awareness of their rights and access to legal representation. Jurbid will relentlessly raise awareness about certain issues affecting Americans and will ensure everyone has access to a lawyer, is represented, and is effectively heard in a Court of Law."
As part of the launch, Jurbid offers its services in Florida and New York.
Founded in 2015, Jurbid is an online legal marketplace that seamlessly connects clients with qualified lawyers. Americans in need of legal help post their legal issue or case on Jurbid's intuitive and secure platform for free and receive proposals from a number of interested lawyers. The proposals include the price of representation and the services the lawyer will perform for the client.
