At the time of this recording, we are still in the midst of a global pandemic due to the coronavirus and even though things are looking up with the administration of the vaccines, we are still a ways away from returning to “normal,” whatever that will mean in the months and years to come.

But, as many of you know, throughout this pandemic so much of our everyday lives ended up taking place virtual and online.

Everything from social interactions including dating, weddings, and birthday parties have all pivoted online. In fact, each one of us will have celebrated a socially distant birthday over the past year.

In addition to social interactions going online, many businesses and organizations have pivoted to the digital world as well as to keep up with our “new normal.” This has even included the legal community with court hearings happening virtually in addition to and many other things that we used to only do in person now happen on Zoom. For the most part, it’s been terrific.

Yet, what really excites me about today’s guest is that she took what typically was an in person, potentially expensive and time consuming area of the law online years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

Erin Levine is an entrepreneur, legal innovator, and Certified Family Law Specialist. She is the founder and CEO of Hello Divorce, a “modern breakup service” offering an affordable, convenient, and low conflict divorce option through a revolutionary web application, the Divorce Navigator.

Erin’s legal technology and access to justice work has been recognized by the legal industry and beyond — with recent awards from the American Bar Association, Women Founders Network, Super Lawyers, Duke University School of Law and Fastcase 50, which honored the law’s smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries and leaders.

And for all of my lawyers and those involved in the legal community, you know this is a pretty big deal. As a fellow lawyer myself I can certainly attest to the fact that lawyers as a whole are not typically on the cutting edge of technology and in many instances, prefer to keep things status quo as they’ve always been.
