About Justpoint:

Justpoint is a technology and financial platform that allows ambitious personal injury attorneys to start their own practice and grow beyond their current employers. We remove attorneys’ financial risks and client-origination costs associated with starting their firm, and we also provide attorneys with pre-trained paralegals, medical staff, software, and a nationwide attorney network. Justpoint attorneys can work from anywhere in the world: from Arizona to the Bahamas.

Justpoint is redesigning the litigation experience by (1) finding the best lawyer for each plaintiff based on data, not ads, and (2) decreasing attorney’s costs using artificial intelligence, allowing for reduced contingency fees and more equitable access to justice for plaintiffs. We believe an optimized litigation system is a fairer one.

We are a distributed startup and have a diverse team from different countries and backgrounds and, as such, we celebrate diversity. We have team members in New York, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Krakow (Poland), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and Guatemala City (Guatemala). We have previously worked at Google, venture capital firms, several tech startups, and some of the industry-leading hospitals. We recently raised over $ 1.4 M from some of the biggest investors in healthcare (Vivek Garipalli), law (Chris Smoak), and artificial intelligence (Amino Capital) to redesign the litigation experience. Justpoint investors have also invested in startups such as Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM), Chime ($25 B valuation), Carta ($7 B valuation), and Clover Health (NASDAQ: CLOV). We are now focused on growing and developing our team to achieve our mission faster!
