Early in his legal career, Kimball faced a personal example of how the legal system’s labryinth-like complexity is harming millions of people who cannot afford attorneys.

This led to a fascinating career as a legal tech founder interested in ways to increase access to legal information and services.

In today’s episode, we talk about how severe the Access to Justice gap in the legal industry really is and how technology and automation can help provide a solution. Kimball shares with us how in his role as the President of SixFifty, the technology subsidiary of top technology law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, he is able to create and provide solutions with minimal attorney time spent. He also discusses collaborations with legal design labs at law schools and how they can contribute to addressing the severe gap between the supply of attorney time and the immense need for legal services.
