Lift Wisconsin (Legal Intervention for Transforming Wisconsin) just announced the launching of a new tool to help Wisconsinites with common legal needs.

The tool is called Legal Tune Up and it is “a mobile first web-based application that uses publicly available data (driver’s license, criminal, eviction, court, and child support records) to help people identify and address legal needs.”

Legal Tune Up is designed to help Wisconsinites identify and clear civil legal problems on their own or with help from trusted professionals.Screenshot from Legal Tune Up app with eviction records removal info.
