About Us

LawDecoder is a free service for people looking for easy to understand information about their legal issues. It can help you learn about your unique situation and match you with legal experts qualified to solve your problems. We ask you a series of questions to help identify the most relevant information and match you with an expert. This website does NOT give legal advice, and it is NOT a substitute for having a lawyer.


-How much does it cost/ who pays?

The website is completely free to anyone using the site. It’s not “freemium,” you don’t have to give us your social security number, there’s no catch.

How come? Our site is powered through a matching program which is paid for by attorneys looking for hyper-targeted, qualified leads or customers they can best serve.

-How does LawDecoder work?

Users (that’s you) come to the site and we ask questions in order to identify their problem. Once we have diagnosed the issue, we provide information to the question in plain English, NO complicated legal jargon. Remember the English you learned in sixth grade? It’s that English.

We also match you with a legal professional near you who can help handle your legal issue. All of our matches are pre-vetted to ensure that the lawyer knows about your particular area of law.

-Where does the content come from?

The content comes from all over the Web. We utilize databases full of legal statutes and create our own “Sparknotes” version of the law. We take that information and compile it in a way so that we can play “20 Questions” to find out about your situation and provide you with the best information for you.

-What states do we currently serve?

We, currently serve Pennsylvania and California. We plan to expand to New Jersey and Texas in Spring 2019.

-What topics do we currently serve?

We have your back for information relating to:

-Cannabis             -Real Estate

-Family Law         -Immigration Law (coming fall 2018)

Is the service in Spanish?  (¿El servicio es en español?)

Unfortunately, we do not currently provide the service in spanish. But not to worry! We  plan to start offering the platform in Spanish in early October 2018.

(¡Desafortunadamente, no tenemos el servicio en español, pero no te preocupes! Planeemos incluir lo para el principio de Octubre del 2018.)

How do I become a partner or qualified match on the service?

We are always looking for more partners! To become a partner you can contact our Community Engagement Team at CE@lawdecoder.com to begin the vetting process or to do a demo.

How do I know the Lawyer I matched with is best for me?

The way we match a lawyer with our users is based on an algorithm that takes into account areas of expertise, how many cases they have won, as well as what locations they practice in. This ensures that all relevant factors are taken into account when determining which lawyer will be the best available match for you.
