Paralegals in Barrie, How To Choose

A paralegal can help you with certain legal issues such as a traffic ticket, a Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) claim, a small claims case or a problem with your tenant or landlord. There is a lot of choice locally in Barrie when it comes to choosing a paralegal to represent you. So how can you make this choice with confidence?

A lawyer can represent you in all legal matters, while paralegals are licensed to provide certain specified legal services.

A paralegal can represent you in:

  • Small claims court
  • Provincial Offences including traffic court for charges under the Highway Traffic Act
  • Tribunals, such as the Landlord and Tenant Board or the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board
  • Summary Conviction Offences under the Criminal Code

Accept A Free Consultation

A free consultation to review your specific situation is the best way to retain a paralegal to represent you. Initially, choosing a local paralegal in Barrie may be a matter of convenience from where you live. Ultimately, the key factor in your decision will be how well you communicate with this professional. In a consultation, you will also learn what the process involves and get some sense of what outcomes are likely. The details of your story and the supporting documents that you have will determine the strength of your case and the likely success of the outcome. An experienced paralegal will give you sound advice on the merits of your case and the odds of a favourable outcome. They will also give you an estimate of their fees.

Paralegals in Barrie

There is no one right person to choose. Therefore a good personal relationship with the paralegal you choose is a reasonable basis for your decision. Trusting your own judgement based on a level of comfort with a paralegal professional can often be your best option.

Paralegal Qualifications and Services

All paralegals are qualified and licenced by the Law Society Of Upper Canada. Qualification means that all paralegals in Ontario have:

  • Completed an approved Ontario Paralegal services program
