What Kind of Cases Does the Small Claims Court Handle?

Small Claims Court Does Not Mean Simple Court! Cases Can Be Brought For Up to $35,000 Involving Complex Legal Matters and While Laypersons Are Permitted to Represent Themselves, Professional Representation Likely Offers the Greatest Chance For Success.
United Legal Services Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward

Lawsuit Document According to the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Small Claims Court is the busiest civil litigation court in Ontario.  With the fast pace of a Court having mandate to handle matters in a 'summary' fashion as well as the volume of matters upon the docket, getting your best foot forward in brief and clear manner is of utmost importance.  United Legal Services prepares materials and arguments for presentation in the concise and expeditious manner required by Judges of the Small Claims Court.

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 United Legal Services - 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.
