Litigation: Small Claims

Litigating disputes can be a costly expense for businesses and consumers. In some cases, small claims court is usually a more cost-effective avenue for resolving disputes and collecting debts valued up to $25,000.

Using a lawyer to resolve disputes in small claims court can be more expensive due to their high legal fees. Using a licensed litigation paralegal is a much more cost effective alternative since they are trained specifically to resolve disputes in small claims court.

At DB Legal Solutions, we represent plaintiffs in small claims court who have a claim against a defendant (s) valued up to $25,000 for the following types of disputes.


Contract Breach Or Default



Debt Recovery



Commercial Disputes



Home Renovation Disputes



Real Estate Disputes



Construction Liens



Judgement & Enforcement


In addition to recovering a claim up to $25,000, you are entitled to seek costs which are amounts that the court orders one party to pay another.  The amount awarded in small claims court is usually 15% of the amount being claimed.

If you are involved in a legal dispute and need reliable legal advice & representation, contact us today and let us help to secure your legal interest.

Mediation as a form of dispute resolution is generally the most cost-effective way to resolve disputes. It can be arranged privately between the parties and is now a mandatory part of the court process before going to trial.  In small claims court, it is called a settlement conference.  There are many benefits of using mediation to resolve disputes without going to court. Key benefits of mediation are:

Mediation helps the parties to narrow their issues

Mediation is a faster process than going to court

Less costly than litigation

Mediation is confidential  – unlike court cases which are public, only the parties involved in mediation is privy to the information.

At DB Legal Solutions, we encourage our clients to settle disputes before opting for litigation. At mediation, we negotiate on behalf of our clients or we act as third party neutral mediators to facilitate the mediation process.

If you are involved in a dispute that you would like settled outside of court, request a consultation.
