“Making legal services more accessible, transparent and affordable for all.” This was the epiphany Aydin Bonabi had after graduating law school. To his surprise there were not many jobs for lawyers, and as he was looking for one, he began receiving numerous calls from family and friends for legal help and advice. They could not afford a lawyer, did not know how to find one or were unsure whether the legal fees were reasonable. But there he was just a phone call away to answer day-to-day legal questions. That’s when Aydin realized that the legal issues his family and friends faced were not uncommon and that other lawyers also received these calls. The idea was born for Jurbid.
