Kristina Jones and James Jones Jr are making it easier to access lawyers through Court Buddy— a new platform designed to match people and businesses with attorneys based on their budget. The San Francisco-based legal tech company just raised $6 million in series A funding led by NFX.
The company was founded in 2015 with a mission to remove unpredictability for users in need of an affordable lawyer and provide the option of a-la-carte legal services at flat rates. The platforms connect consumers to pre-screened law firms and attorneys across the country. Users are then able to instant message, video chat, and make secure payments for the legal services.
“Court Buddy’s goal is to be the market leader in innovative delivery and pricing of legal services,” said CEO James Jones to Black Enterprise. “The new infusion of capital and access to additional resources from our world-renowned investors will undoubtedly help the company achieve this goal.”
Court Buddy received seed funding from 500 Startups, who invested $150,000 last year.
This new round of funding brings the company’s total to $7.1 million since the launch.
