Last month, DoNotPay, the self-proclaimed World’s First Robot Lawyer, publicly announced that it was discontinuing its non-consumer rights legal products after publicity stunts involving having a robot lawyer appear in traffic court and offering $1 million to have its chatbot handle a U.S. Supreme Court case. In the aftermath, there were concerns that the company’s actions had damaged the access to justice cause, among other things. This all came after a Twitter frenzy questioning the validity of some of DoNotPay’s products, initiated by Kathryn Tewson, a paralegal at a firm in Washington state.

Legaltech News recently sat down with Tewson, who previously worked in tech support at Microsoft and as an investigator prior to becoming a paralegal, to discuss the incident, why she started investigating DoNotPay, the recent fraud lawsuit she initated, and more.
