The founding shareholders, Jamie Hargrove and Roger Madden (“Original Shareholders”), originally assigned from their law firm, Hargrove Madden LLP (now known as Hargrove Firm LLP) to the Corporation the suite of estate planning documents and the web-based portal previously in operation at Hargrove Madden LLP. They are joined by co-founder, Alex Hargrove, current CTO and creator of the American Bar Association award winning platform that gave rise to NetLaw.
NetLaw started because it believed consumers needed a portal focused exclusively on estate planning to counter the online “document” companies that provide every kind of legal document. So for example, NetLaw does not have divorce documents, bankruptcy documents, apartment leases, etc. The goal was not to provide an online service for everyone. It didn’t need to capture everyone. Millennials, for example, are turning age 37 this year and in 10 years, 47 years of age. Millennials want to handle transactions online, not in person. It is estimated that as much as 60% of the US population do not have a Last Will & Testament and possibly as many as 90% do not have a complete up-to-date estate plan.
To date, NetLaw is business-to-business only service. NetLaw generally does not market directly to consumers.
NetLaw is not a law firm and does not provide legal services.
