The ‘World’s First Robot Lawyer’ Is Set To Take On Its First Court Case

Joshua Browder founded DoNoPay in 2015 as a chatbot designed to provide legal advice to consumers who are dealing with late fees or fines.

He converted the company to an AI model five years later.

His software is now referred to as the “world’s first robot lawyer.”

According to the New York Post, the product will assist a defendant during a legal battle to fight a traffic ticket and will take on its first court case with the help of AI.

Browder, who became “an expert” in finding loopholes to avoid paying fines while accruing parking tickets at Stanford University, said he founded the company “by accident.”


Now, the founder hopes to use his invention to eliminate the exorbitant fees that consumers face when they rack up parking tickets.

Browder believes he has devised a workaround that will allow people to avoid not only paying the tickets but also the legal fees associated with hiring a lawyer to assist them in fighting their case.

“The goal of this company is to make the $200 billion legal profession free for consumers,” said Browder.

According to Browder, the time it took to train the application on a wide range of case law topics was extensive, as it aims to replace certain types of lawyers entirely to save people money.

“There’ll still be a lot of good lawyers out there who may be arguing in the European Court of Human Rights, but a lot of lawyers are just charging way too much money to copy and paste documents and I think they will definitely be replaced, and they should be replaced,” he explained, according to the publication.

Another goal for Browder’s company is to have the application he created — which he claims took a long time to train on case law covering a wide range of topics — replace certain lawyers entirely in order to save people money.

“It’s all about language, and that’s what lawyers charge hundreds or thousands of dollars an hour to do,” he said, according to the New York Post.

During the upcoming case, the technology will instruct the defendant on what to say in a court of law as they sort out a speeding ticket.

DoNoPay has pledged to “fight corporations, beat bureaucracy, and sue anyone at the press of a button” in addition to serving as a legal assistant.
