Our Vision

We imagine a world where AI helps ensure our legal system is affordable, efficient and just.

We're thrilled to announce our first product, AI deposition summaries. Managing massive amounts of deposition testimony is a huge pain point. That's why we started SmartDepo - to help lawyers supercharge their law and motion practice with testimony management.

Our solution to a difficult engineering problem resulted in a 16-step patent-pending AI technology that can summarize depositions within hours not days, generating dynamic page-line citations, hyperlinked tables of contents, and pulling out key admissions. This allows you to quickly find the most important information in testimony.

Our tech handles the busywork so you can focus on winning cases. At SmartDepo, we've walked in your shoes. We want to help lawyers win more cases with a lot less headache.

And we're just getting started. We hope you join us on this journey.
