WHAT ARE LAWYERS SAYING?

"I researched a sentencing issue yesterday and tried out rangefindr today not thinking I’d get anything new on a Luring case and was surprised to find a 2011 case that is directly on point and did not come up elsewhere."

"I’m finding excellent results on rangefindr. Extremely easy to use and the information is well organized."

"Wow! I think this program is phenomenal. Even for my offence (not exactly the most common, nor the most reported) I found some good principles and ranges."

"I tried out rangefindr and it is FANTASTIC. I am most impressed with the thought that went into it — you can tell it was made by someone who actually understands the needs of the practitioner. Research of sentencing cases takes me forever but your website makes it manageable, even easy."
