"The people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do."
Amandeep Kakkar started his career by working as a trainee with Airtel. Prior to this, he graduated from Chitkara University with a degree in Computer Science. Later, he did his post graduation in Bachelor of Laws from Punjab University.
During his internship at Punjab & Haryana High Court, he felt a gap between clients and lawyers. To address this problem, he founded Lawsolva.com, which is is an open platform for everyone to discuss and enquire about their “legal queries”.

What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
During my internship in 2013 at Punjab & Haryana High Court, I couldn’t ignore the roof-touching piles of paperwork. In the coming days I also realized that the only medium the client had to reach the lawyer was through references via., lawyers, friends or relatives in court. I felt there was vital need of a digital platform to make the lawyer directly accessible to the client . A platform where the users could access the detailed profile of the lawyer.
