JDoe is not a law firm. We are a public benefit corporation whose objective is to streamline the reporting process for sexual misconduct and to assist personal injury firms in finding compelling cases. Survivors of sexual assault are increasingly turning to civil law in order to seek justice.1 Sexual harassment suits have long been in the purview of civil law, but are becoming more common.2 In spite of these trends, firms struggle to reach potential clients — often putting thousands of dollars towards marketing.3 The difficulty of client outreach impacts firms and survivors alike, making it riskier to take on cases and harder to find a lawyer.
JDoe bypasses the expensive marketing process using a two-sided technological approach that facilitates reporting, ensures the anonymity of survivors and witnesses, and provides a stream of winnable prospective cases to firms. By focusing on security and ease of access we aim to dramatically increase reporting rates. Behind the scenes, our platform is identifying repeat offenders and building multi-plaintiff prospective cases that once brought are more successful, more valuable, and less harrowing for plaintiffs. Using current methods, it is nearly impossible for law firms to find mutual victims of the accused.
Reports and Cases.
Firms that partner with JDoe are provided access to a secure app and web platform. As repeat offenders are identified, prospective cases show up under Reports. All identifying information is removed from prospective cases until the user agrees to a consultation. Your cases can be filtered by type and ordered by date, number of plaintiffs, or number of reportees — including witnesses.
Maps and Metrics.
Maps provides an overview of survivor resources (medical services, counseling, and law enforcement) and a heat map of reported incidents. Metrics provides an overview of accepted cases and your outreach success rates.
Let's work together.
