Seth Barany,Legal Product Associate, SixFifty
Seth attended the University of New Mexico where he obtained undergraduate degrees in Economics and Political Science before going on to receive his JD from Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law. After law school, Seth went on to work as an associate at a large law firm in New Mexico, where he specialized in employment law and commercial litigation. During his time practicing, Seth was struck by how much access to the justice system was limited by someone’s ability to pay the, at times, outlandish fees that go along with hiring a lawyer. This realization led Seth to leave his practice and seek out a position where he can help deliver quality legal work to people and organizations that don’t have the resources necessary to hire a law firm.
