Precision Paralegal is different than traditional law firms because we can assist clients with the collection of their debts and receivables, as well as contract disputes, at competitive rates and alternative fee structures. The hourly rates that are charged by law firms usually don’t justify using their services to collect a debt through the Ontario and Alberta Small Claims Courts. In Ontario Small Claims Court you are able to commence an action up to $25,000.00 and in Alberta Small Claims Court you are able to commence an action up to $50,000.00.
Helping you Navigate Small Claims Court
Prior to taking any action on our clients file, we make a legal assessment to determine if the matter should in fact proceed legally in Ontario Small Claims Court. Sometimes legal action is not the proper or most cost effective recourse. We then provide our clients with our recommendation on how to move forward. If legal action is determined to be an effective recourse, we follow a strict process that is customized for Ontario and Alberta Small Claims Courts. Our process starts with a demand letter and verbal contact with the debtor or opposing party. We always try resolve the matter prior to proceeding with legal action. If the debt cannot be collected or the dispute cannot be resolved, we prepare and process a claim against the debtor and follow the matter through to judgment, including attendance at settlement conferences and trials if required. Once judgment is received the hard part begins – collecting your money. We have extensive experience in locating assets and being able to collect debts post judgment by way of garnishment, writs and examinations.
