 The Difference Between a Paralegal and a Lawyer

Although paralegals cannot deal with everything that lawyers are permitted to, they can still cover many legal matters for you. You can avoid high lawyer fees by using the expertise of a paralegal for the following:

  • Landlord and tenant matters
  • Small claims cases
  • If you are being sued or are suing somebody else for $35,000 or less
  • If you have a minor criminal legal matter
  • Any traffic violations, including speeding, stunt driving, texting, and driving, etc.
  • If you need legal representation in a tribunal, such as WSIB, LTB, Human Rights, Labour Board, etc.
