Sea levels are rising, fires are raging, and as alternative rock band Smash Mouth told us in their 1999 hit song All Star:
Let's say you're planning to file a motion in state court. You'll have to tell your client about the judge, and you'll want to know how to tailor your motion. With Trellis you can get your judge's bio and a statistical breakdown of the judge's rulings.
Legal research is powerful. It’s the lifeblood of a case. It can shape an argument, improve a motion, and win credibility with clients.
The internet has trained us to search for things. Whether it be food, news, reservations -- or your opposing counsel win-streak -- we are constantly searching. Search is so powerful that it guesses what you are about to type just with the few letters you entered. The data from other people searching informs what you will likely be looking for.
Using Trellis we looked into which of the California counties had the most attorneys. The graph below shows the percentage of attorneys in the top 10 counties.
