Upsolve was born out of Harvard Law School's Access to Justice Lab in 2016. After almost a decade of pro bono bankruptcy work, we wanted to build a better way for people get back on their feet. Since we started, we've received support from the Robin Hood Foundation, Harvard, and Yale.
Upsolve is a free technology-enabled consumer bankruptcy legal aid clinic in New York City. Our software makes it easy for New York-based debtors to fill out their paperwork on their own, and we connect debtors with our network of pro bono attorneys to review the paperwork before it's filed with the court. Upsolve also produces software for consumer bankruptcy legal aid clinics across the country.
To date, we've erased over $1.5 million debt for low-income New Yorkers. We've also helped over 700 Americans figure out whether bankruptcy is the best option for them.
