Have You Considered Hiring a Paralegal?
Since small claims court hears cases with less than $25,000 in damages, the average person doesn't want to spend thousands of dollars on a lawyer to have quality legal representation in court. Also, since Toronto small claims court was designed to be easy for people to represent themselves, many plaintiffs and defendants go it alone. But why? Hiring a paralegal from Civil Litigations means that you get the same services and knowledge base that a lawyer would provide you with at only a small fraction of the cost.
Small Claims Court is Still a Big Deal
Of course, small claims court is called "small claims" because the most a person can sue for is $25,000. To the court, this is a small claim, but to the average person, $25K is a lot of money. Don't make the mistake of thinking that "small claims" means "small" regarding court significance. Whether you're suing or being sued, even a few thousand dollars is not "small" to most people. In small claims court in Toronto, all judgments are final. You only have one shot to win your case, so make sure you are ready for your hearing with quality legal support. Even if you lose your claim, we may still be able to get you a favorable result.
