COVID-19 UPDATE: Their Covid story is rather unique. In early March they were fully launched and focused on client acquisition and revenue. By the time the shutdowns began they were in full growth mode — developing their client database and getting louder regarding the platform and services. Uptake on their platform was steady, but they identified an opportunity to give back to developing business communities nationwide. Goodlawyer understood that many startups, entrepreneurs and even established businesses had their primary incomes dry up due to layoffs and did not have the capital to retain firms for their legal work. They decided to give anyone who was affected by COVID-19 free legal advice, and are proud to have helped over 300 businesses pro-bono. They continue to honour this promotion today and are happy to provide free 15-minute legal advice sessions to those whose businesses have been affected by COVID-19. If that is you, please message email@example.com to redeem your free session.
According to the Clio Legal Trends Report, roughly 77% of legal needs in North America go unmet. As a former lawyer, Goodlawey's CEO and co-founder Brett Colvin saw first hand that most people need legal help but can’t afford it. They don’t qualify for Legal Aid, but the typical firm rates are simply out of reach — thus leaving many Canadians unable to receive legal counsel. Tired of being part of a broken system, Brett teamed up with a developer, designer, another like-minded lawyer, quit the firm, and got to work on Goodlawyer. Driven by the belief that everyone should have access to affordable and quality legal services, Goodlawyer built an online marketplace dedicated to upfront, fixed-fee prices for the most common legal needs. Goodlawyer's on-demand, "a la carte" legal services marketplace allows business owners to get professional legal help more efficiently at a fraction of traditional firm rates.
