You Deserve A Fair Shot
We enter into thousands of contracts every year — apartment rentals, car leases, employment offers, concert ticket purchases, TikTok terms and conditions, and more. Each contract outlines what you are, and are not, entitled to. But if none of these agreements are written to benefit you, how can you protect your rights as a consumer? That's where Legal Hat comes in.
Legal Hat uses super smart AI models to demystify the law so that the law can work better for you. It's like having your own personal defender (except you can actually afford it).
Legal Hat's free renters' rights chatbot is just the beginning — we're building an incredible solution that gives people just like you the upper hand, one contract at a time. Share your email and we'll keep you updated on our progress.
