Does a Person Need a Lawyer to Sue 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.
Jorge Andres Steinmetz Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward

Lawsuit Document 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 Jorge Andres Steinmetz in presenting your position as clearly and concisely as possible is of great importance.

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.

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, Jorge Andres Steinmetz 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 Jorge Andres Steinmetz may be of great importance.
