Grace helped me get out of my lease in record speed, the entire ordeal was over within 24 hours of contacting Grace. She did an amazing job of guiding me through the legal process and coming up with our plan of action. I cannot recommend her enough and will definitely be using her services in the future.

After speaking to numerous paralegals about my tenants issue, I finally found Grace. She was very patient (unlike others) and actively listened to the entire issue (more than an hour on the phone, others bill you for it) Having worked with multiple lawyers and paralegals, I was taken by surprise by Grace's down-to-earth attitude. Grace worked on the case very effectively and efficiently. She is polite, very friendly, no crazy paralegal attitude whatsoever, responds immediately through text or calls and knows her stuff very well. Finally my issue was resolved seamlessly with Grace's efforts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GRACE for any sort of paralegal services. She made my life easier.

GG Paralegal Services' legal services include but are not limited to:

Small Claims Court

The Small Claims Court in Ontario is a court of equity, meaning that the court has the authority to apply principles of equity instead of law. In 2010 the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario increased the jurisdictional limit of the Small Claims Court to $25,000 before interest and costs recently this amount has been increased to $35,000. 

GG Paralegal Services provides legal services to businesses and individuals in a timely manner and a successful resolution of their matters.

Provincial Offences/Highway Traffic Offences

Provincial Offences typically are issued in the form of a Notice and are either non-criminal or quasi-criminal, to which the responsibility of prosecution has been transferred from the Province to Municipalities.

The more common Provincial Offences include but are not limited to:

Highway Traffic Act, Dog Bite,  Property Standard offences, just to name a few.

Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act - including failing to surrender your insurance card, or possessing a fake or invalid insurance card

Statutory Accident Benefits

Auto insurance is changing - what you need to do.
 All owners of vehicles in Ontario must purchase a standard auto insurance policy. 

Effective June 1, 2016, to help make insurance premiums more affordable, the benefits and coverage you receive in a standard auto insurance policy changed – some were reduced, and some options for increased coverage were eliminated or changed.

If you are involved in a car accident or have been denied accident benefits, please contact our office for referral to SWITZER LITIGATION - personal injury lawyer.


Landlord & Tenant Board

The Landlord-Tenant Board provides dispute resolution 
to both Landlords and Tenants through the form of a 
hearing. The board offers mediators to assist in a timely
 amicable resolution. 
The Landlord-Tenant board is a pseudo-court, meaning 
that it sets out practice directions and procedures and 
its decisions are binding. 
We can represent either the Landlord or Tenant and guide them through the twists and turns of the system.

Animal Control Tribunal

The Animal Care and Control By-law (By-law No. 2003-77) provides for a variety of regulations related to cats, dogs, livestock animals, and prohibited animals in the City of Ottawa. Regulations include leashing, the maximum number of pets permitted per household, registration, removal of waste, etc.

When a dog owner is issued a muzzle order, the dog owner shall appeal the decision by requesting a hearing.

Human Rights Tribunal Ontario

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario is an administrative tribunal in Ontario, Canada that hears and determines applications brought under the Ontario Human Rights Code, the provincial statute that sets out human or civil rights in Ontario prohibiting discrimination on the basis of a number of grounds (such as race, sex, or disability) in certain social areas (such as services, housing or employment). Any person who believes they have been discriminated against under the Human Rights Code may bring an application to the Tribunal.

Notary Public

Notary Public is part of the legal system in Ontario and is appointed by the Government of Ontario, more specifically by the Ministry of Government Services in Ontario.
A notary public provides crucial and critical services to the general public such as: 
  • Document execution,
  • Affirming the state of mind of all signees,
  • Identifying fraud or coercion,
  • Completing the notarial certificate on all documents,
  • Verifying the identification of contract participants,
  • Being present at the time of document execution,
  • Witnessing contracts, loan documents, marriage certificates, and other legal documents,
  • Certify photocopies of the documents as true images of the original document, and
  • (Sometimes) handle closings for the mortgage industry.
