What Our Clients Say
When nobody would help me with an Appeal, I was given the name of Kara Muzzell, who came to the rescue. She immediately went to bat for me with her expert legal advice, in depth research regarding my case, and guided me through the entire process with explanations in layman's terms that I easily understood. Kara fought for me all through the process, and I highly recommend her. Thanks Kara!
We have had the pleasure of working with Kara on a small claims court settlement and her work has been outstanding. We have met her on multiple occasions in her office and she does so well to listen and understand the important details of our situation. We have also been to two settlement conferences with Kara and she is extremely effective in managing the court environment and prepares us well for the experience. We have also been impressed with the amount of homework Kara does to prepare and represent us in our case. Finally, Kara is also excellent in working with our opponent’s lawyers to negotiate a settlement. As a final point, Kara’s office team is wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend Kara and her entire team!
I have experienced many lawyers in my years, Kara Muzzell helped me considerably and I cannot thank her enough for what she did for me. She is professional and will take the time to discuss your case. Her office team are always helpful, and you will not be disappointed.
Questions & Answers
What is the difference between a Paralegal and a Lawyer?
In Ontario, both Lawyers and Paralegals have to obtain the proper education and pass a Licensing Exam at the Law Society of Ontario. Lawyers are trained and qualified to represent clients in any area of law. A Paralegal’s scope of practice focuses on particular areas of law and our education, training and licensing allows us to focus on these areas of law. Paralegals may represent clients and provide legal services at various Tribunals, Small Claims Court, Provincial Offences court and some minor Criminal Court matters.
Why Hire a Paralegal?
Generally, Paralegals provide their clients with cost-effective legal representation and advice. Paralegals are regulated by the Law Society of Ontario and are held to a high standard of professionalism, service and we advocate in our client’s best interests.
What are your fees?
We believe every client and every case is unique. We have an intake process where we assess what is needed and the possible avenues that could be taken. Each case is so different that a flat fee is not always the best solution. Feel free to contact our office for your individual quote.
Should I self-represent?
There may be individuals who are competent to self-represent but unless you have experience and the time to devote, we strongly recommend, at the very least to talk to a legal representative before making the decision to self-represent. Often times, clients obtain legal advice after trying to self-represent. Getting professional advice from the beginning can save you time, money and stress.
Is there a Lawyer at your firm?
We work very closely with Lerners’ Personal Injury Lawyers who also work from this office location. If you are looking for a Lawyer whether it be for Personal Injury, Criminal, Real Estate, Family, Wills and Estates, we can direct you to a Lawyer who can assist you. We have built great relationships with several local lawyers over the years and would be happy to direct you to a firm that can meet your needs.
