Who We Are

This site was started back in 2006 by Albin Renauer when he left to explore what could be done about access to justice (#A2J) with hyper-local law delivered by relational databases...

Today, is authored by several folks who worked with Albin at Nolo in the 1990s and early 2000s. All have law degrees and 30+ years of experience explaining the law in plain English to ordinary folks like you.
