Legally Yours in the Press – Karen Finch Ticker News Interview
In this Ticker News TV interview, Legally Yours CEO, Karen Finch, talks about the inaccessibility to legal services crisis happening around the world.
70-80% of people who have legal needs don’t engage with a lawyer to seek the legal help they need. The number 1 reason for this is fear around price, and the second reason is lack of trust.
