SMALL CLAIMS court cases

Only for Toronto and Durham regions, and only when amount in dispute is at least $5,000. (This is because case may take  thousands of dollars in legal fees to do. If the case is over a smaller amount there are cheaper paralegals who are willing to workd for small amounts, but "you get what you pay for".) Now that up to $25,000 can be fought over in Small Claims court in the GTA, it has become more formal and legalistic so it is important to have legal representation if you are fighting for more than about $5,000. If the other side has a lawyer or licenced paralegal and you don't, you are at a disadvantage. Likwwise if you hire a lawyer and the other side does not, you have the advantage. If you just want to DIY (do it youself) and have us check over your documents before you serve and file them, or help you arrange for service, filing or explaining the complex Rules to you, our rate is $350 per hour. We suggest you come for a consultation before you start working on your case.
