'Pickle' is a video app that provides underserved clients with on-demand legal advice. In many countries, legal representation is extremely expensive to obtain. This service helps ensure underserved clients better understand their constitutional rights.

Pickle operates as a video app that users can access when they are in need of legal advice. As soon as a user opens the app, Pickle sends an alert to all of the attorneys in its network. The app then connects the user with legal representation via real-time video chats. The attorney can offer immediate advice that the client can use to better understand their situation and their constitutional rights. The app also offers archived videos that users can pull up when necessary.

While the app is currently in the early stages of testing, it offers a unique means of helping underserved clients.
