About Us

Resolved is an online dispute resolution tool built for courts and government. We help court systems increase access to justice, improve efficiencies, and better their communities.

In 2017, the Legal Services Corporation (“LSC”) reported that 86% of civil legal problems reported by low-income Americans received inadequate or no legal help and that 71% of low-income households experienced at lease one civil legal problem in the previous year.

Resolved is helping and equipping courts with the tools to fix these issues.
