Rosezetta Upshaw, founded Legends at Law early in 2021 after discovering that many legal clinics still hadn't reopened after the Covid-19 shut down.
"In over 10 years I have never seen an empty legal clinic. There is always a need. One of my mentors invited me to join him at a legal clinic when I was still a student and I've been volunteering at legal clinics ever since. It became clear to me that so many community members from all walks of life rely on legal clinics to get access to legal help. As an attorney in my 10th year of practice, I take it for granted that my cellphone is full of attorney contacts and I can get answers about any topic at any time. I want to bring that access to everyone. Legends at Law is designed to do that. It's a collective platform that attracts high-profile attorneys who ordinarily don't have the time to drive to a legal clinic but can certainly pick up the phone for a quick chat. Our VIRTUAL LEGAL CLINIC structure is a win-win because the community members get free legal information and the attorneys get to make a huge impact with efficient effort."
