Startup Intaker matches prospective client’s needs with lawyers’ practice areas, using artificial intelligence to gauge a matter before it walks into a lawyer’s office.

Intaker was founded in 2018 and is an offshoot of Idemandu, an artificial intelligence company that provides a free virtual assistant through text messages with the aim to connect local service providers, such as fitness trainers and nutritionists, to consumers. While Idemandu is still operating and is offered through Google Assistant, Intaker is a different app that law firms can download from the Intaker website.
