Atticus is on a mission to reinvent how Americans seek and find legal help.
Today, people with serious legal needs find it extraordinarily difficult to find and hire the right lawyer. They wonder: "Do I need a lawyer?" "What will I get if I hire one?" "How much will it cost?" And of course, "Which one should I choose?"
Atticus is the place where anyone can get rapid, expert help answering those questions — for free. We diagnose clients’ needs, explain their options, and help them find and hire the right lawyer to move forward. For lawyers, we operate as a broker: We send them pre-vetted clients who want to hire them, and take a percentage of what they earn from successful cases.
Who are our clients? Anyone who encounters a crisis, ranging from a forklift operator who becomes too sick to work to an architect who gets hit by a car and faces massive medical bills.
What unites our clients is the feeling that the legal system is daunting: Few know where to turn, or whom to trust. That’s where we come in – we’re the first place people in crisis turn to find trusted legal help and claim the aid they deserve.
