OUR PRACTICE AREAS


Small Claims

If you are involved in a lawsuit that does not exceed $35,000 either as a plaintiff or defendant, we can help you. Small claims can include, but not limited to property damages, collection of unpaid loads and more. A paralegal can help you by drafting the claim or defence, perform legal research, submit evident and representation throughout the entire process.

Residential Tenancies Act/Landlord and Tenant Board

If you are a landlord, we can assist you with any difficulties you may be encountering. We can help with ending the tenancy (eviction), collecting rental arrears, assist with property damages and more. If you are a tenant, we can help you with tenant rights, rental rebate, rent reduction, and more.

Provincial Offenses Act (POA)

The Provincial Offences Act (POA) is a provincial statute that sets out procedures for the prosecution of offences under other provincial statutes and regulations and municipal by-laws. Under the POA umbrella is the Highway Traffic Act and we can help you with speeding, stunt driving, demerit points, hands-free driving and so much more.
