In a Nutshell

At Upsolve, we believe every American should have access to their legal rights, regardless of whether they can afford a lawyer. Bankruptcy is a powerful tool that allows low-income families to relieve their debt and re-enter the economy. Due to COVID-19, it's more important than ever. But legal fees in bankruptcy are too expensive for low-income families who need it. We're making this critical part of the American safety net free and accessible. To date, we've already relieved over $250 million in debt for our users.

Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.
