Barrista

We are developing AI-driven preliminary legal assessment services by searching through a number of public databases that put litigants into perspective by going through similar cases how much legal fees were charged and how long the litigation took by looking into the summaries of the cases. We then match litigants with lawyers whose fees are within their budget.
