AI-powered attorney-client matching service
Justpoint is a platform that uses artificial intelligence to match legal cases with lawyers and law firms that are best suited to handle those cases. It specializes in personal injury cases and evaluates all claims it receives with a team of doctors and lawyers for accuracy. Afterward, the cases are compared to Justpoint’s internal database of over 300,000 historical claims to match each client with an attorney best suited to their case.

🔮 Our Analysis
The legal world is one ripe with opportunities for innovation. Justpoint has identified a prevalent problem when it comes to clients choosing lawyers; in the company’s words, lawyers and firms should be selected based on area expertise and case records, not because of the number of billboards they advertise on. While advertised as an AI-powered solution matching lawyers and clients, Justpoint can be accurately described as a combination of lawyers and other domain experts analyzing cases with algorithms searching the company’s database of claims to find cases with similar details. Justpoint’s underlying technology also helps law firms, both with case discovery and referrals as well as general case organization—the platform provides firms with clear case details and expert opinions to save time for lawyers. The results seem promising—according to Justpoint’s website, its predictive analytics have helped clients get payouts that were 3.2x higher than anticipated. The biggest question in our minds would be related to any potential competition: what would it take for another company to replicate its model? Yet in its current position in the industry, and with its funding and expert team, we’re optimistic about Justpoint’s ability to continue to improve the way most people find lawyers to represent them.
