Trellis offers two primary products: Smart Search, through which users are able to find court dockets, rulings and filed documents, and Judge Analytics, where users can find information about judges’ caseloads and ruling tendencies, including grant rates for specific types of motions and anticipated timing to reach certain milestones.
It also now offers the ability to search jury verdicts in selected states.
The company was launched in 2018 by Nicole Clark, a lawyer who initially began collecting data on judges for her own use while a litigation associate in Los Angeles.
Last year, it raised $14.1 million in a Series A funding round to fuel its expansion into additional states. Its total funding to date is $20 million.
