Dean Cservenyi LLP Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward
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 Dean Cservenyi LLP in presenting your position as clearly and concisely as possible is of great importance.
What is referred to as the Small Claims Court is often perceived as an entity separate from the general court system; and accordingly, the name 'Small Claims Court' is perhaps a misnomer whereas the Small Claims Court is perhaps better thought of as the civil litigation department of the Superior Court of Justice that is assigned to hear claims for compensation of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff plus legal costs and interest. Another difference is that the cases are usually heard by Deputy Judges rather than a Justice. The Deputy Judges sit part time and are, generally, practicing lawyers with at least ten years experience. Another difference is that the Small Claims Court processes are conducted in accordance to Rules of the Small Claims Court as a set of unique procedural rules.
Although the Small Claims Court handles the smaller claims brought to litigation, with claims of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff, these lawsuits are always treated as very important by Dean Cservenyi LLP - after all, money matters are never truly 'small'; furthermore, these claims can, and often do, involve the same complex issues litigated in the unlimited court.
