Sam Witherspoon is the Founder and CEO of MiraLaw – a legal tech start up based in Ottawa. Focused on leveraging technology to address access to justice issues, MiraLaw has created a product, Thistoo, that is intended to help mitigate the A2J issues faced by parties in Family Law.
In this varied conversation, we talk about Sam’s journey from law school to founding MiraLaw, the idea behind Thistoo and Miralaw’s other product Compass, the future effect of technology on the practice of law, and the challenges of founding your own legal tech start up.
Sam recommends the book The Hard Things by Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. You can also find more info on MiraLaw here.
