We often are contacted with questions about tribunals, small claims court matters, and minor traffic offences. These situations may be difficult to deal with for an individual but don’t necessarily call for the expertise of a lawyer and may in fact be too expensive to have a lawyer deal with. The Law Society of Upper Canada has recognized that some matters which are small in terms of cost may be handled more cost effectively by a paralegal and in light of this have recently begun to regulate paralegals.
In these cases we have our paralegal, Agatha Small, to answer and guide you through the red tape.
Matters that she can help you with include but are not limited to matters that fall under the Small Claims Court Rules, which include any dispute or claim for $25,000.00 or less. She has experience with Provincial driving offences such as speeding tickets and other traffic violations. Also, she regularly deals with disputes relating to tenant issues at the Landlord and Tenant Board.
In addition to the above our Paralegal can assist with tribunal matters such as Immigration, Workplace Safety and Insurance, the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, the Conservation Review Board, the Energy Board, the Environmental Assessment and Appeal Board, the Financial Services Commission, the Municipal Board, the Pay Equity Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission.
If you are unsure of whether we can deal with your matter don’t hesitate to contact our office for a consultation. We will be happy to assist you in figuring out what or who to speak with and we are confident that our paralegal will represent you with honesty and integrity.
