A person who represents themselves regardless of the where, they are referred to as a Self-Represented Litigant
I have setup this page to provide a resource for those wishing to represent themselves.
The Law Society of Ontario has changed its previous practice where lawyers and paralegals could only offer bundled services.
Now lawyers and paralegals can offer unbundled services.
What does this mean and what is unbundled services?
It, simple means you can pay for and get only the service you want. So, for example if you need me to prepare you small claims court plaintiff’s claim and then you wish to represent yourself that is allowable.
The only issue is that the majority of lawyers and paralegals do not currently offer this service, but I do!
I can provide you even more affordable legal services with document preparation or document review for any matters that paralegals practice in. For more information call (905) 581-3602 or e-mail me at email@example.com
Non-Paralegal Unbundled Services
Paralegals are NOT allowed to assist individuals with any legal services which are outside the scope of their practice. These areas include Family Law, all matters before the Superior Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice - Divisional Court, the Court of Appeal for Ontario, the Federal Court, Federal Appeals Court, and the Supreme Court of Canada.
