The attorney disciplinary system is currently self-regulating and self policing. The legal consumer is at a grave disadvantage when filing a complaint. The dismissal rate is nearly 90 percent in many States. The legal consumer has limited recourse after suffering harm from an attorney.
We are a socially conscious startup that seeks to restore public confidence in the attorney disciplinary process by adding transparency, increasing accountability, advocating uniformed enforcement and moving Court Reform one step forward.

The Market /
Approximately 100,000 grievances are filed nationwide per year. With our service as an option, we intend to capture the hidden market of complainants who request complaint forms but never submit them.
By reducing this market shrinkage, we estimate the total market to be approximately 130,000 grievance filings per year.
The market is domestic covering all 50 States. The LegalWhistler is modeled after the credit reporting industry. We maintain records that reflect the record holders behavior in distinct situations. The legal consumer is our target customer. As the first and only Private Option for filing a legal grievance, we strive to break the monopoly and acquire 60% of the market by our third full year in operation.

Our Anticipated Success Rate Across all Products
Similarly, we suspect this lack of confidence has also eroded the reconsideration filings. We estimate they will increase to 50,000 per year. We do not handle Appeals. Our process is patent-pending.
This is a true MONOPOLY. Attorney's can only be disciplined by the Bar Association or the State Supreme Court. There are NO private competitors.

We anticipate starting the year with 30% of the total market. We will continue to use social media ads, SEO, email marketing and PR campaigns. We should benefit from Word of Mouth. We will roll out more services since our database will be sufficiently seeded.
To expand our niche market, we are delving into a complementary market. The LegalWhistler will notarize over 50K documents annually. Online notarizations have recently become legal. We will enter this market to increase revenue. It will allow us to expand our reach outside the legal field. Our biggest competitor is Notarize.com based in Boston. We can be the Lyft to their Uber.
Niche Market Expansion
We anticipate starting the year with 50% of the total market. We will acquire new customers with email marketing, social media ads, word of mouth, SEO and PR. We will establish ourselves as experts in our field by issuing White Papers about our industry.
We are starting from the beginning and proving our concept. We will offer limited services in 4 States (all in different time zones). We believe the concept will be fully proven within six months. We will then use our revenue to gradually expand nationwide while becoming the #2 player in the online notarization market focusing on the mortgage industry.
