ParadElaw gives you fast access to Nigerian lawyers online

by | Jan 24, 2017

Unlike the Western world, technology seems not to hold much ground in the African law industry. In fact, many Africans are yet to embrace the relevance of the profession. The good news is, technology is rising to bridge that gap by bringing lawyers closer to the people.

Since the advent of technology in Africa, tremendous exploits have been made by indigenous brilliant minds to scale up the continent to global heights of technology. The impact of these tech-based solutions has been vividly expressed in sectors such as health, finance, communications, media, etc. But the law profession has not been a so favoured beneficiary of the African tech uprising.

This could be what inspired Femi Ibiwoye to create, ParadElaw, an online legal platform that connects people who need legal services with lawyers online.

Femi Ibiwoye, CEO of ParadElaw was smart enough to realise the disconnect between the professional and the people, hence he created an easy common ground for their relations.

Via the web and a mobile application, users can filter through a large database of legal advisers from different practice areas — civil rights, family law, child custody, divorce, auto accidents, criminal law, contract, real estate and so on —  to choose their preferred lawyers. They also have free access to online counsel and legal information.

ParadElaw has indeed proven that there is no limit in tech innovation — it could thrive even into the most unusual field.

However, technology has not advanced to building trust — clients, relating with these lawyers online definitely implies giving out some vital information.  This raises concern over the security of ParadElaw’s clients. Perhaps, algorithms should be developed to assure clients’ safety and lawyers’ credibility.

Excited about this innovation? please share your thoughts.
