In any relationship, disputes inevitably arise. While you may not be able to avoid going to court, you can at least be prepared. In order for litigation to be effective, your lawyers must be knowledgeable, skilled at oral advocacy and negotiation, prepared, and have a thorough understanding of your case. Whether you need help with a claim against a neighbour who has violated your property line, or you need professional assistance taking on an employer for wrongful dismissal, the lawyers at Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF) are here to assist you.
At DSF, we know that many cases can take months if not years to resolve. Our team works to minimize the impact of this on you and your loved ones. We stay focused on your case to ensure it can be resolved as quickly as possible, while also working diligently to produce the best results. Throughout the litigation process you can rely on us for personal attention to answer your questions and to offer realistic expectations and sound advice.
Our Litigation group offers full services in virtually any area of law including:
We have experts in each of the monetary jurisdictions to ensure that you have the most qualified and cost-effective representation for: both Small Claims Court (for claims under $25,000) and Superior Court.
It is often important that you file a claim as soon as possible. This is because, in Ontario, the Limitations Act 2002 imposes a general two-year limitation period from the “discovery” of a claim, after which no litigation may be started. Filing a claim after this two-year period may prevent you from taking legal action and receiving compensation.
