Marshall Yarmus is a former Vice-President of both the Paralegal Society of Ontario and the Paralegal Society of Canada. He has written extensively on paralegal related issues, and remains a strong advocate for paralegal and consumer rights. In 2007 the Law Society started to regulate paralegals in Ontario. The Law Society had never undertaken a study of what services paralegals should be able to offer the public. The Law Society decided to ban paralegals from offering any family law related services. This is an area that many paralegals had offered the public – legally – for years. Family law is also an area where there is a high level of unrepresented people in the courts, who through no fault of their own cannot afford a lawyer. In May 2010 Marshall Yarmus led a group of paralegals who put forth a motion before the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Annual General Meeting. The motion sought that the Law Society review paralegal-allowable areas of practice, with a look at expanding these services available to you- the public. The motion also requested that the Law Society review education standards and other barriers to paralegals offering family law services.
Civil Litigations provides a high level of service to our clients. We believe paralegal regulation is in the public interest. Marshall Yarmus stands behind his ideal and speaks out on behalf of the public.
