Why use CrowdJustice?

CrowdJustice is built by lawyers and designed specifically for fundraising for legal issues.

Built for legal

CrowdJustice is specially tailored for legal action. Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, we handle compliance issues and transfer funds raised to your lawyer directly – you don’t have to handle cash, and your backers know exactly where funds are going.

Public or private funding

You can share your story and crowdfund publicly from a community of online backers.

Or you can raise funds privately with an invitation-only page.

Supporting your legal journey

We integrate seamlessly into your existing legal journey – from supporting you to raise the funds you need to ensuring that your lawyer is able to accept funds. We’ve seen it all and we’re happy to help.

What people who have used CrowdJustice say about us

Jacquie Ostrom
Jacquie Ostrom, Counselor
Raised $1,539 on CrowdJustice

Crowdfunding was the best way to get enough money to cover the hard costs for our legal case. I received excellent information and support from before we launched right up until the end of our fundraising.

Hugh Madden
Hugh Madden, Communications Director for Progress Michigan
Raised $7,000 on CrowdJustice

Progressive organizations don't always have the resources to fight for what's right in court. Thanks to CrowdJustice, we were able to use the power of participation to raise the necessary funds to help fight for a more accountable and transparent government.

Rodney Cruz Jr.
Rodney Cruz Jr., Veteran (Iraq and Afghanistan)
Raised $11,890 on CrowdJustice

CrowdJustice provided an ideal stage for me to tell my story directly to people who care about it – that was absolutely essential to attract the community who went on to support our case.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone can raise funds on CrowdJustice.

The only requirement to launch your page on the platform is to have a lawyer instructed or be working with a registered organisation (such as a charity).

For more information, have a look at our policy.

We use two fundraising targets - the initial target and the stretch target .

The initial target is the initial amount of money you seek in order to take legal action. If the target is not reached within 30 days, cards will not be charged and we do not collect any fees. Once the initial target is met, funds will be transferred to your lawyer (or associated organisation), net of fees & charges.

After reaching the initial target, you can choose to move onto a stretch target , which allows you to continue raising funds for your legal action. Any funds not used in relation to the legal action fall under CrowdJustice's unused funds policy.

It’s free for you to set-up and launch a CrowdJustice fundraising page. This allows you to tell your story, mobilise a network of supporters and take legal action with support from our team along the way.

If you reach your initial fundraising target, CrowdJustice charges an administrative fee of 3% of funds raised and a third-party payment processing charge.

Funds raised are transferred directly & securely to your lawyer, net of fees & charges.

For more information, take a look at our Terms & Conditions.

The important things for success are a well-written CrowdJustice page, which helps people to understand your issue, and engaging a network of supporters to help you spread the word.
