RealFlex App Launches No-Cost, Real-Time Attorneys’ Advice During Live Police Stops
Industry: Mobile Apps
New York, NY (PRUnderground) June 24th, 2020
RealFlex App is announcing a tool to deliver immediate aid to people stopped by the police. The app will provide live video chat services from lawyers who can advise the citizen and speak directly to officers on the scene.
Laron Duncan, a New York State Licensed Real Estate Broker, is co-developer on the app. “If someone gets pulled over by the police,” Duncan says, they can start a live video chat with their lawyer to speak to the officer about what’s happening right then and there.”
“This app is very timely,” he says, “Because right now America is focused on a string of police-involved deaths of African-Americans, including Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks. This app raises accountability so that these scenarios don’t continually end up with use of deadly force.”
Protests around the country demanding racial justice are sparking responses. Local governments are considering de-funding police departments. Corporations are declaring their allegiance to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Statues of historical figures, including Confederate commanders, slave traders, and Christopher Columbus, have been toppled in the U.S. and around the world. “This is the change we need to see,” Duncan says, “And RealFlex will be a part of that change.”
The RealFlex app will be air-dropped on July 4th – Independence Day. Duncan says the public will have access for free. “We’re raising funds to support compensating the attorneys, although many are already committing to provide their services over the app for free” Duncan says, “Users will receive the first 30 minutes at no cost.”
If legal representation is required beyond the initial stop, RealFlex will refer users to pro bono attorneys or those offering discounted fees.
