What Kind of Lawsuits Happen in Small Claims Court?

Receiving Professional Representation in Small Claims Court Matters provides a Strong Advantage and can be of Great Importance Whereas the Legal Issues involved can be Complicated. Additionally, with Claims of Up to $35,000 per Plaintiff, Going Alone May be Risky.
DK Legal Practice Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward

Lawsuit Document As per the Ministry of the Attorney General, the busiest civil litigation court in Ontario is the Small Claims Court. With the busiest docket of matters to hear as well as a mandate to hear proceedings in an expeditious 'summary fashion', hiring the professional assistance of DK Legal Practice helps ensure that your best case is presented and heard.

Actions brought in what is called the Small Claims Court occur in the Superior Court of Justice.  Accordingly, what is known as the Small Claims Court is actually somewhat of a misnomer.  It is perhaps better to think of the Small Claims Court as a civil litigation court department assigned to handle a subset of cases involving claims for compensation up to $25,000 per Plaintiff (increased to $35,000 effective January 2020) plus legal costs and interest.  Another difference is that cases brought in the Small Claims Court are usually heard by Deputy Judges.  The Deputy Judges are lawyers with at least ten years experience who are appointed to act as part-time judges in the Small Claims Court.  Still another key difference is that Small Claims Court cases are conducted in accordance to Rules of the Small Claims Court which are a trimmed down set of procedural rules that help ensure small claims cases progress expeditiously from beginning to end.

Although the Small Claims Court handles the smaller claims brought to litigation, with claims of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff, these lawsuits are always treated as very important by DK Legal Practice - after all, money matters are never truly 'small'; furthermore, these claims can, and often do, involve the same complex issues litigated in the unlimited court.
