Trellis Blog - Legal Analytics

Search first

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.

Let’s say it’s early February. You’re in the United States, and you start typing “s-u-p…” into Google. It's more likely that you're looking for SuperBowl content than ‘Superior Court of Los Angeles’. In contrast, if you’d logged previous searches for ‘subpoenas’ or other legal terms, there’s an increased likelihood that you’re be looking for ‘Superior Court of Los Angeles’.

Context matters and a user’s search context is key to a rich experience.

Trellis analyzes the contents of tentative rulings -- motion, parties, judges, departments, case-type -- to find the information you’re looking for. We know you are looking for great insights on your local judges. We know that with existing solutions you would be searching for information on your judge in the abstract rather than being able to see how they actually rule on their state cases.

We deliver the context. All you have to do is search.
