  HitchSwitch was born of an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to make life easier. HitchSwitch founder Jake Wolff was in his first year at Fordham Law School, where he toyed with the idea of starting a business and hoped to experience his “Eureka!” moment.

As most good ideas come from real life, when Jake got married in 2010 his wife wished for straightforward, easy step-by-step instructions to simplify the name change process, and HitchSwitch was born!

Jake believes no one should ever wait in long lines at multiple government offices, only to find out they completed an outdated name change form. He sought to create a website where one could quickly and easily change their name after the ‘big day,’ while eliminating all the hassles associated with locating and completing the necessary forms, and the piles upon piles of paperwork.
