Our Editorial Values

Throughout the editorial process, our work is guided by four core values.

1. Accessibility

Our articles, blogs, and lawsuit guides are intended to empower anyone who needs help navigating the law. That means our content is always free and written in a way that’s easy to read and understand. If we do use legal jargon, we’ll explain what the term means and how it may apply to you.

We also ensure that our content is welcoming and inclusive by using alt tags for images, text transcripts for videos, and consistent formatting throughout our website.

2. Accuracy

Many of our readers are victims of injustice looking for reliable information about their legal rights. They may be wondering if they can file a claim or how to get in touch with a lawyer specializing in the area of the law that they need help with.

With so much on the line, our team focuses on providing content that is precise, detailed, and current. At the end of the day, you can rely on our information and use it to get the justice you deserve.

3. Transparency

We believe that transparency is a vital element of good journalism. To that end, we list and link to the sources we use at the end of every article and blog. Additionally, the author of each article is clearly identified, and our website includes expanded biographies detailing their experience and expertise.

4. Trustworthiness

Our team of dedicated legal writers, editors, researchers, experts, attorneys, and support staff work tirelessly to provide readers with truthful and dependable content. We go one step further by having our partner attorneys fact-check and legally review the content on our website, so you can trust that what you’ve read is true.

Journalistic Principles

In line with the tenets of ethical journalism, we ensure that the sources we use to gather and report legal news are diverse and verifiable. You can find out more about these sources below.

Legal Documents

Whenever possible, we use court documents like complaints, opinions, orders, and jury verdict forms to collect information for reporting. We monitor case law in the areas that matter the most to our readers, like asbestos litigation, birth injury cases, and nursing home abuse.

These primary source materials allow us to gain insight into particular topics, detect legal trends, and share outcomes of lawsuits.

Government Agencies

We also rely on information from government agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Studies, reports, and alerts from these organizations allow us to report breaking news about dangerous drugs, defective products, and more to help readers keep themselves and their families safe.

Reputable News Outlets

We monitor respected news outlets like Bloomberg, Reuters, The New York Times, and The Washington Post, so we can report on the latest legal happenings across the country.


Our team adheres to a regular schedule for reviewing and updating content. During these reviews, we update older data, clarify ambiguous information, and add the latest legal news. However, if you do happen to catch an error or misinformation, please reach out to our Editor-in-Chief at [email protected].
