Areas of Practice

 


We provide litigation services to represent you before the Small Claims Court, whether you are the Plaintiff (the suing party) or the Defendant (the party being sued).

Civil disputes arise when individuals have been wronged and wish to seek compensation. The cases heard by the Small Claims Court are related to money such as non-payment of bills, loans, etc., and related to damages for causing pain and suffering such as slip & fall, wrongful dismissal and breach of contract amongst others.

In most cases, you have up to 2 years since the incident ocurred, to file your claim with the Small Claims Court. It is important to note that the Small Claims Court can only award a maximum of up to 25K, if you are seeking compensation for more than that, the Superior Court of Jusice. deals with this type of civil matters.
