In the beginning..
“The original concept was simple…making legal services, like will drafting, accessible to everyone by putting the office on wheels…but it’s become much more than that, and I’m excited about where it’s going. My biggest wish is that I’m pushing some boundaries and challenging some of the outdated and limiting beliefs about how law must be practiced. We are officers of the court. It’s our job to provide access to justice”
