Small Claims Court

Efficiency, knowledge, experience, and professionalism are what needed from your legal team and this is where Gobin & Leyenson LLP comes in. 

As your legal team, consisting of a lawyer and a licensed paralegal, with decades of experience before the Small Claims Court, your claim or your defence will be advanced efficiently and professionally. In Ontario, Small Claims Court hears matters where the amount of money or value of the property involved does not exceed $35,000.00. The person or business starting the case is called the plaintiff. The person or business being sued is called the defendant.

Some of the reasons you can sue:

You can sue to get money the defendant owes you under an agreement you have with them. You can sue if you were harmed by something they did, or should have done but didn’t. You can sue to get goods that you believe belong to you.

What you should know:

Litigation is not an overnight process, be prepared. Foundation is the key to any successful claim or defence, consult with a licensed paralegal or a lawyer.
