We're a small team (7 total), so we work quickly and collaboratively!
Write Code. Fight for Justice. Access to justice is a huge, global problem. In the U.S., 86% of folks who need legal help don’t get it because they can’t afford a lawyer. Everyday, we read about victims of natural disasters who have lost everything, families who have been separated by immigration bans, or Dreamers who face deportation from the only home they’ve ever known. These stories and so many others are stark reminders of just how critical access to legal services is for our communities.
At Paladin, we envision a future where a global network of attorneys and legal organizations work together to deliver pro bono services to every person who needs them. We are building a diverse team of dreamers, design thinkers, visionary coders and justice warriors to create that future. We are fresh out of Techstars, venture-backed, revenue-generating, fired up and ready to go.
