Infordus Legal Services Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward
According to the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Small Claims Court is the busiest civil litigation court in Ontario. With the fast pace of a Court having mandate to handle matters in a 'summary' fashion as well as the volume of matters upon the docket, getting your best foot forward in brief and clear manner is of utmost importance. Infordus Legal Services prepares materials and arguments for presentation in the concise and expeditious manner required by Judges of the Small Claims Court.
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, Infordus Legal Services 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 Infordus Legal Services may be of great importance.
