Our History

  • AUG 2020

    MBK Group, LLC was formed.

  • OCT 2020

    TurnSignl began developing the application and partnerships.

  • MAY 2021

The TurnSignl App

Minnesota-based TurnSignl is an on-demand, real-time service that provides legal guidance from an attorney to drivers, all while their camera records the interaction. When drivers are stopped by law enforcement officers or involved in a car accident, they can access live video chat live with an attorney at the press of a button or voice command. TurnSignl attorneys are vetted and trained to de-escalate interactions between police, drivers, and passengers.

TurnSignl’s unique tele-legal subscription service supports 24/7 access to legal advice. Some drivers go on to hire these partner law firms directly after the stop for representation or added consultation. The app is currently live in Minnesota and expanding quickly across the country, through 2022 and beyond. TurnSignl was born out of necessity, in the same city where George Floyd tragically lost his life to police violence. Our hope for the future is to make drivers feel safe and empowered every time they get on the road.

What Sets Us Apart

Advanced
Technology

The TurnSignl app is simple to use. Signing up takes under a minute, and the user experience is intuitive. In the event of a traffic-related incident, drivers simply press a button or use voice commands to connect with expert attorneys and record the event. All interactions are stored and encrypted into the user’s personal cloud.

High-Quality
Legal Support

TurnSignl provides 24/7/365 access to legal guidance from attorneys who are experts at keeping drivers safe and protected. Attorneys are trained to de-escalate potentially volatile encounters and advocate for users’ civil rights during traffic stops, car accidents, and other roadside interactions. We only partner with law firms that meet our stringent criteria and understand the specifics of local laws, rights, and ordinances. In the event of an arrest, detainment, accident, or other post-stop interaction, drivers can opt to hire the law firm directly for continuing representation
