Erin Levine, founder of Hello Divorce, joins Conrad and Gyi to explain how her innovative tech platform streamlines and demystifies the divorce process for clients while allowing lawyers to practice law – not schedule appointments, manage clients, and waste time with administrative tasks. Entrusting basic drafting, scheduling, and filing work to a robot, though, does have one obvious conclusion––fewer tasks to bill for. But if you’re worried about your bottom line, don’t freak out just yet. Levine says Hello Divorce isn’t built to put you out of business but, by allowing clients to only use lawyers for what they need, to open up a broader pool of paying clients and improve the process as a whole. Hello Divorce and services like it may be harbingers of the future legal industry, so it’s time for you, dear lawyer, to start thinking about how to adapt your practice and messaging to fit in.Special thanks to our sponsors Alert Communications, LawYaw, and Clio.
Erin Levine CEO and Founder of Hello Divorce - LegalTechLIVE - 124
We cannot pretend to be objective about this interview. Erin Levine has been a friend of the show for several years. She's previously been a co-host and has been a huge supporter for other women founders who have been on the show. In the episode Erin takes us from inception of Hello Divorce to her decision to fundraise (coming off a recent $2M raise). Her company has faced many difficulties including a patchwork of jurisdictional and local rules, the difficulties of reframing the idea of divorce and the approaches to wellness they've employed in a more holistic approach to the termination of the marital contract. Further, we dive into finding the right investors and moving from an small "all hands on deck" #legaltech #startup into a more refined operationalized and systematized company. A necessary change for a growing #justicetech company. We do not want to ruin this candid conversation by over-describing the interaction. Get to know Erin and Hello Divorce. They're leading the way on direct-to-consumer legal assistance. More about Erin Levine & Hello Divorce: Erin Levine on Twitter: https://twitter.com/hello_divorce.

The FYI on DIY Divorce from the Founder and CEO of Hello Divorce, Erin Levine on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast #197
The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.
This week host, Susan Guthrie, is joined by the woman who is changing the divorce process for couples and families forever! Erin Levine, Founder and CEO of legal tech phenom, HelloDivorce is here to give you the FYI on DIY Divorce! The statistics on traditional litigated divorces are staggering: Recent national statistics suggest that a majority of divorce and separation cases (72%) involve at least one self-represented party. Divorces that go to trial on two or more issues cost, on average, $23,300. The average hourly rate for a divorce attorney is $270. The average total cost of legal fees was $11,300 per spouse when a full-scope divorce attorney was involved. Divorces take, on average, between 12 and 18 months to finalize. Is it any wonder that most people going through divorce do not want to, or cannot afford to, hire attorneys? In fact, there are a number of reasons why people choose a more Do It Yourself approach to the process and this week's guest, the Founder and CEO of Hello Divorce, Erin Levine, is here to give you the FYI on DIY Divorce so that you can take charge of the process yourself and know when and where to go if you need help! Erin is the leading expert on elawyering and online divorce in the country and she and Hello Divorce are here to support you as you face the legalities, and myriad other details, of divorce.

Law and Technology Series: Erin Levine (California, USA), CEO of Hello Divorce and Levine Family Law Group
The Legal Eagle Podcast
In this new law & technology episode, our special guest is from the San Francisco Bay area in California, USA. Erin Levine is the CEO of Hello Divorce and Levine Family Law Group, a certified family law specialist, a Duke law & tech accelerator grand prize winner and a mother to two beautiful children. Erin inspires us all with running her own legal tech company despite not having a technology background. As an entrepreneurial woman, she believes nothing is stopping you from starting your own business. All you need is consistency and be willing to keep at it. Hello Divorce, an accessible online legal software and transparent document system was really designed to be a viable product to help people avoid the stress and high costs but still get lawyer results. Faced with the challenge to convince lawyers that legal software will not destroy them but contrary, Erin believes people would always need lawyers regardless. She sees this as a unique opportunity to show lawyers that there is a sustainable way to practice law – to have a well-designed product that is both accessible and affordable for consumers. Ultimately, Hello Divorce is a legal platform intended to serve the clients’ needs no matter what stage of the divorce they are in.

Do we also need a platform “Hello Bankruptcy”? And what is the one thing that almost all customers want from their legal services?

Ep 084: The Story Behind Erin Levine’s DIY Platform ‘Hello Divorce’
It should have come as no surprise when California attorney Erin Levine recently announced her plan to go nationwide with her do-it-yourself divorce platform Hello Divorce. After all, the site has been seeing rapid growth and has earned Levine broad accolades, including the 2020 James I. Keane Memorial Award for Excellence in eLawyering from the American Bar Association and the 2019 Reisman Award for legal innovation from practice management company Clio. But why did Levine, who has a successful family law practice in Oakland, Calif., first decide to create Hello Divorce three years ago and then spin it off as a standalone company last year? And what does she now see as the opportunities and challenges in bringing it to all 50 states? On this episode of LawNext, Levine joins host Bob Ambrogi to share her story as well as that of Hello Divorce, starting from why she went to law school, how she came to establish her own practice, her reasons for launching Hello Divorce, and the site’s growth and future.
