LawyerUp started with a story from a father of a college student. His son caught a ride home for break with a group of kids from school. They were pulled over. Before they knew what was happening, they were sitting on the side of the road as the State Troopers searched the car.
There was, in fact, nothing illegal found.
The father said, “I’m glad that it all worked out. But they were scared - they didn’t know what to do when the Troopers told them to exit the vehicle. They didn’t know their rights, they didn’t know what to say, and they didn’t know who to ask. They felt completely helpless.”
We realized that there was an unmet need for urgent legal help. Legal emergencies are common. They happen without warning. When they do, every minute counts. Getting counsel right away is the correct action. Yet, people don’t, and it can get them in real trouble.
