Small Claims Court

The world according to law and regulation can often be difficult to navigate. However, when preparing a small claim court representation in Canada, there are a few key elements you first need to clarify:
  • Who are you?
  • Who are you making the claim against?
  • What has happened that has caused you to make this claim?
  • What you are seeking in initiating this claim?
Although everyone has the right to represent themselves in a Canadian Courtroom, it is quite an undertaking to do alone. Long hours of research, preparation and appearances. Take the guesswork out of making a claim in court, and partner with the professional paralegals at ACS.

Attendance at Pre-Trials

The legal process in Canada is often detailed, lengthy and procedural. Sometimes taking months or years to finally get through the system to plead your case, or reach a settlement. With years of experience in court, we know the ins-and-outs of the Canadian legal system better than anyone. 
Having a seasoned Paralegal by your side can greatly assist you in taking advantage of unforeseen events. Our paralegals will:
  • Use their knowledge to help obtain favourable settlements
  • Help clear you of any charges
  • Move your case through to the next level based on its urgency
Attendance at Pre-Trials
Over the years, ACS has settled hundreds of cases at the Settlement Conference stage and will use that same experience and expertise to communicate on your behalf to obtain a favourable settlement, or acquire the necessary information to properly prepare for Trial. It’s best practice to have an expert attend your pre-trials and settlement conferences. While it can be more expensive, in the long run, the expense is more than justifiable.

Preparation and Representation in Attendance at Trials

Unless you know all the proper steps and Rules of the Small Claims Court, representing yourself at trial can be intimidating to say the least. When searching for favourable results, the right court representation and preparation is key to ensuring a thorough execution on the legal process.
When you partner with ACS Paralegal for your Trial needs, not only do you receive years of hands-on Ontario courtroom experience, depending on your unique case we review:
  • All aspects of your case prior to the court date
  • The facts of your Plaintiff’s Claim, the Defence, the Defendant’s Claim
  • Any court orders made at the Settlement Conference
  • Any direction given by the judge at the Settlement Conference
Attendance at trials
In fact, you may not even need to attend your trial date depending on the claim being made and the complexities behind it.

ACS works closely with each client providing you the confidence and satisfaction of knowing your claim is always being taken care of quickly and professionally.
