Do I need to have a lawyer for the Ontario Small Claims Court?
Legally no. But, because the monetary limit for Small Claims Court was recently raised to $35,000.00, you can expect to see more disputes being pursued in Small Claims Court and increased legal representation there. Because there can be cost consequences awarded in an unsuccessful claim or defence, it’s important to have an Ontario Small Claims Court lawyer to properly guide you through the process. If you are suing (or are being sued) in the Ontario Small Claims Court, Supply Law can represent you or give you the guidance you need to represent yourself.
