What We Do

Providing leading A.I. legal research technology 

Our Story

From the start, Casetext has focused on eliminating inefficiencies in legal research. As a litigator, Casetext founder Jake Heller experienced firsthand the frustrations of expensive, outdated, and inefficient legal research tools. And as an engineer, Jake understood that applying modern technology could provide a true competitive edge for law firms. 

Jake teamed up with Stanford CodeX fellow Pablo Arredondo, who was focused on new approaches to legal research such as Casetext’s AI-backed legal research technology, CARA A.I.  With the help of other former litigators working hand-in-hand with data scientists and engineers, Jake and Pablo began building the solutions they wished they had as litigators.

Casetext has since become one of the leading sources of legal information. One million people access Casetext’s legal library each month, and thousands of attorneys at firms big and small rely on Casetext award-winning contextual search to help them get the answers they need fast so they can spend more time on higher-value work.


Our Team

We are lawyers, data scientists, engineers, and designers, working together to build technologies and services that help attorneys better represent their clients. Our tools are designed by litigators from some of the country’s best law firms, and built by leading experts in machine learning and artificial intelligence. 

We are also a smart, fun, and happy group of people who enjoy spending every day working on making legal research better.

Casetext powers litigators at over one hundred law firms, from the world’s largest law firms to solo practitioners to civil rights advocates.  Our clients include:

"Judges have clerks. Law professors have research assistants. Now, you too, can have your own research assistant: one whose work takes seconds, not hours or days..."

"[CARA] could be a powerful way to shortcut your research as you begin to draft your reply and find weak spots in your opponent's arguments."

"CARA data mines the inputted brief and uses the gathered information to form a sort of 'mega-query' that runs against Casetext's database of case law....It's not magic, it's math. But sometimes math can look like magic."

"CARA would have really come in handy when I was a Biglaw associate... In fact, if CARA had existed I might still be in Biglaw."

"I love the 'a-ha' moment when I realize that a new product has uncovered insights into data that was essentially 'hiding in plain sight.' I had one of those moments [with] CARA."
