Episode Notes

Helping to ensure that all citizens have a voice within the judicial system is a passion that inspires many to become lawyers. However, statistically, access to justice still remains an issue that the profession struggles. In this Special Report host Ray Abadin sits down with CEO and Founder of Avvo Inc. Mark Britton to discuss his ABA TECHSHOW 2016 presentation entitled,”Atticus Finch, and Access: Bringing Quality and Affordable Legal Services to the Masses.” The conversation opens with Mark explaining how there are consumers who need to understand their legal situation, lawyers who need to  turn those consumers into clients, and a void of communication between the two. He then goes on to share a bit of Avvo’s history and the experiences that led him to start the company. The discussion wraps with Mark shedding some insight into the benefits of greater interactivity and community between, and for, both consumers and lawyers.

Mark Britton is the founder and CEO of Avvo, Inc. Prior to founding Avvo, Mark was the executive vice president of Worldwide Corporate Affairs of InterActiveCorp Travel (IACT) and Expedia, Inc. He received his law degree from George Washington University and holds a degree in finance from Gonzaga University. Mark serves on Gonzaga’s Board of Regents.
