How We Work With You

We will meet with you, we will review your case, and we will advise you. We pay careful attention to your needs and foster a close working relationship with you so you understand what is going on and what needs to be done, at all times.

It is important to understand that the Ontario Litigation process is ultimately designed to resolve disputes. Whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, over 90% of cases settle prior to trial. By properly implementing proven litigation techniques, we know how to leverage and negotiate the best possible settlement. In fact, we do so for the vast majority of our clients. In the event that a settlement is not possible, we have the skills and experience required to win your case in Court.

Why Should You Use a Lawyer Instead of Trying to Do It Yourself

Over the years, the litigation process has become extremely complicated. The Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure involve hundreds of interrelated rules, forms and procedures, and court cases take months or even years to resolve. Without a formal legal training and years of litigation experience, it is virtually impossible to successfully litigate a case on your own. To best ensure you win your case, you should hire a lawyer that specializes in litigation.
