Legal Tree is a tech startup and social enterprise founded by Atty. Jason Arteche with the goal of making legal services simple and affordable.
Hi, I’m Atty. Jason Arteche, owner and founder of Legal Tree.
He who has less in life should have more in law — is this true today?
My years of legal practice have exposed me to the high cost of legal services. Many people don’t have access to legal services because it's too expensive and difficult to avail of. Consulting a lawyer cost thousands of pesos. Looking for the right lawyer who can help you is also difficult. As a result most people forego legal services and are taken advantage of.
According to the 2019 edition of the World Justice Project’s “Global Insights on Access to Justice”, 80% of Filipinos who needed legal help did not receive it. Worse, of the 20% who did receive legal help, 72% of them sought legal help from friends and families while only 15% sought help from lawyers and the rest from various institutions.
I founded Legal Tree with the goal of empowering Filipinos to protect their rights by making legal services easily accessible to them. My vision is a Philippines where anyone who needs legal services can easily get it.
