The Small Claims Court is a branch of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that handles action for payment of money and recovery of personal property for a maximum amount of $25,000.00.
If you are in the middle of a Small Claims Court action and decide that you may want assistance in the courtroom, we can be retained for the single purpose of attending these type of hearings. Motions, Settlement Conferences, Terms of Payment Hearings, Assessment Hearings, Trials and Garnishment Hearings. Most attendances are charged on a flat rate basis except for trials. Depending on the complexity of the case, your matter, the fees may vary.
Sometimes all you may require is assistance in contacting a party or replying to correspondence you received in connection with a legal matter. It can be intimidating to prepare these responses. We can assist you by preparing correspondence either on our letterhead, or assisting you with the wording for you to reply on your own.
Judgment Enforcement Collections
If you already received a judgment from the court and now need help in collecting your money, this part of the process is the most difficult, but also the most rewarding. We have the tools that can assist in locating assets (e.g. bank accounts, employers, and more) to help you recover your money.
Ontario Residential Tenancy law is defined by the legislation that outlines the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants.
When appearing before the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB), we assist clients with issues such as non-payment of rent, rent increases, evictions, maintenance issues, owner's occupancy, and more.
Under the Residential Tenancies Act, a Landlord or tenant can file an application for a determination of their rights.
As a Landlord, you are often times faced with a Tenant who is persistently late with the rent. You have different options to remedy the matter by filing the appropriate application that deals with your issue. Likewise, if you are the Tenant and you have an issue with the Landlord, you have the option to bring the matter to the Board.
