As an attorney in the Florida courts, James Jones witnessed first-hand the often negative outcomes of people representing themselves in legal cases simply because they were unable to afford an attorney. Teaming up with marketing and advertising creative director Kristina Jones, the duo (who are husband and wife) set out to change that.
The online platform they’ve created matches people and businesses to attorneys, when they are needed, at an affordable rate. Their platform also helps attorneys in their own practices find clients who need their services.
Court Buddy also handles all payments through CB Direct Pay, which secures client’s payments and ensures attorneys are paid before the work begins, and handles all communications through its app, CourtBuddy Chat. To make legal services even more accessible for clients, Court Buddy offers financing in the form of micro-loans with three-, six-, or 12-month repayment plans and low interest rates.
