Meet our team

Groundswell exists because one over-stressed lawyer decided that he wanted to take his life back. A few years ago, Attorney T.J. Fraser was keeping too much information in his head. He used a hodgepodge of different systems to keep track of forms, checklists, due dates, and promises to clients. He had valuable knowledge and know-how, but it wasn’t readily available to the other people in his organization.
