How Does Small Claims Court Work?
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
As is stated upon the website for the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Small Claims Court is the busiest civil litigation court in Ontario. Additionally, whereas the Small Claims Court is mandated to process matters in a 'summary fashion', receiving professional assistance from DK Legal Practice in presenting your position as clearly and concisely as possible is of great importance.
What is referred to as the Small Claims Court is often perceived as an entity separate from the general court system; and accordingly, the name 'Small Claims Court' is perhaps a misnomer whereas the Small Claims Court is perhaps better thought of as the civil litigation department of the Superior Court of Justice that is assigned to hear claims for compensation of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff plus legal costs and interest. Another difference is that the cases are usually heard by Deputy Judges rather than a Justice. The Deputy Judges sit part time and are, generally, practicing lawyers with at least ten years experience. Another difference is that the Small Claims Court processes are conducted in accordance to Rules of the Small Claims Court as a set of unique procedural rules.
With claims of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff, cases in the Small Claims Court are rarely viewed as 'small' to most people; and accordingly, DK Legal Practice treats these, and all matters, with utmost importance. Furthermore, whereas these claims may involve legal issues just as complex as the cases litigated in the higher civil court, such is another reason why professional services of DK Legal Practice may be of great importance.
