Meet the Founders

The first and only legal platform just for content creators

The rise of the creator economy led Eric Farber, a sports and entertainment lawyer and serial entrepreneur, to develop a further interest in the market. “Creators have become their own businesses and there is little access to the industry-standard legal solutions that large creators or production companies have,” said Eric. “I wanted to combine my industry knowledge with a technology platform to bring legal solutions to all creatives.”

Creators Legal is the first and only legal platform built just for Content Creators, with simple, straightforward, industry standard contracts, drafted by real content lawyers, in a fully integrated system to help content creators build their business. Now live with contracts in film, indie music, podcasts, social media content, commercial video production, web series and self-publishing.


Leveraging data science, neuroscience, and technology to advance justice

Justice Innovations grew out of the Center for Science & Law, a Houston based 501(c)(3). 

Our first commercial product, Intake, is state-of-the-science information management software built for Offices of the District Attorney, that transforms the prosecutorial decision-making process, keeps innocent people out of jail, automates critical public safety data across systems and criminal justice agencies, rebuilds police & community trust, and saves millions of taxpayer dollars in the process.


Ensuring all who want to find legal help can do so

While managing intake appointments for a free legal advice desk in Chicago, Eamonn Keenan realized a core inefficiency within the distribution of legal services.

Despite having resources, it was difficult to provide appropriate service or advice to individual litigants because, as non-lawyers, they lacked professional knowledge to clearly figure out the legal nature of their personal situation.

Eamonn developed SAEF Legal Aid, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to provide an online triage and screening platform to help those unable to afford a market-rate attorney find local free and affordable legal resources.


Automatic translation for clients with limited English

Growing up in a household with limited-English speaking family members, Belinda Mo (left) witnessed and experienced discrimination and difficulty accessing basic resources due to on language limitation.

The idea for Viva Translate first came to Belinda while enrolled in a class on legal innovations at Stanford University through Professor Margaret Hagan’s Legal Design Lab.

Belinda partnered with fellow engineer, Tony Hua, on the development of Viva Translate, a messaging platform with automatic translation functions, to help people with limited English abilities communicate better with their lawyers and government officials.
