Three EDH locals shake up the legal world

Experience the transformative power of JusCheckIt, a groundbreaking startup founded by Cameron Gallad, Jackson Wise, Ryan Guaglione, and Chris Denand. We’re revolutionizing the legal landscape with our cutting-edge online platform and app, providing essential legal information and resources to those who need them most.

Inspired by personal adversity, our founder, Cameron Gallad, witnessed the devastating impact of a faulty construction project on his family’s health. Fueled by the desire to prevent others from facing similar hardships, he embarked on a mission to empower individuals and protect their rights. This mission gave birth to JusCheckIt.

With a staggering 80% of civil legal cases involving self-represented parties and a shocking 86% of low-income individuals lacking adequate legal assistance, JusCheckIt recognized the urgent need for accessible legal resources. We’re committed to leveling the playing field, ensuring that everyone has equal access to justice.

At JusCheckIt, we’re revolutionizing the legal landscape by providing a platform that connects individuals with the legal support they need. Unlike traditional ad-based search engines that favor larger firms and prioritize the most valuable cases, our platform empowers smaller firms to reach and assist individuals directly, fostering a more equitable legal system for both attorneys and their clients.

Despite being in the early stages, JusCheckIt has already achieved remarkable success. Our relentless focus on information gathering, backend development, and user testing demonstrates our dedication to delivering a seamless user experience. Recognized for our vision and impact, we’ve garnered prestigious awards in state-wide competitions, including sweeping first place in People’s Choice, Judge’s Choice, and Social Innovation at UC Davis’ Little Bang! We’ve also made a mark in the Technology for Social Good category at UC Davis Start Up Week, along with other notable achievements through the Plasma Accelerator program.

But our journey is far from over. We’re actively seeking funding opportunities through competitions, accelerator programs, grants, and angel investors to propel us towards a full-scale product launch. Our goal is to revolutionize the legal landscape and empower individuals worldwide.

Join us in shaking up the legal world, disrupting outdated practices, and building a brighter future for all. Together, we can create a fairer and more inclusive society, one legal resource at a time.
