Small Claims Court
Small Claims Court is a legal system established in Ontario for people to deal with minor disputes. The system is quite informal but still has many rules and applicable legal principals.
One of the most common questions I get asked about Small Claims Court is whether or not a lawyer is needed. My answer is always no, but starting or defending legal proceedings in Small Claims Court can take up a lot of time. There are deadlines, filing requirements and court attendances.
Generally, you should speak with a lawyer if you are thinking of starting a Small Claims Court action or have been sued. Many lawyers do not even deal with Small Claims Court cases for a variety of reasons.
In many cases, Judges at Small Claims Court will attempt to resolve the issue in a manner that is fair and equitable. Your chances of success are always based on your preparation and the evidence you have.
