Nolo, formerly known as Nolo Press, was founded in 1971 by two attorneys in Berkeley, California. Nolo specializes in do-it-yourself legal publications and software. Their products are designed to help people handle simple legal matters on their own. Nolo focuses on common areas of law and uses easy to understand language. And, even though they encourage people to handle their legal matters on their own when it is reasonable to do so, they recommend hiring professional legal help for complex or disputable legal matters.
