Small claims court proceedings can be difficult and stressful. Depending on the outcome of these continued proceedings, either you (the plaintiff) or the defendant could either claim partially or full reimbursement for court expenses or owed property and money. The length of these proceedings depends on how much evidence both sides present, and how complex the case itself becomes over time. Claims permitted in small claims court include those involving unpaid accounts for goods or services, unpaid loans and/or rent, NSF cheques, property damage, personal injuries, and breach of contract by a specific individual or business. By submitting a concise, clear, and accurate Plaintiff Claim to the defendant and appropriate courthouse, you will move into the heart of the litigation process. If self-representing, this can be a frustrating time, particularly if you aren’t familiar with legal terminology or proceedings.

By contacting Shaw Legal Service, we’ll put you in direct touch with one of our legal experts who are highly knowledgeable of the inner workings of small claims court.
