U-SUE is dedicated to providing fairly priced legal services for matters in Small Claims Court. We offer a flat rate fee structure based on the amount of the claim and the complexity of the matter. Payment plans are available.  

We can help with:

Unpaid loans – if there is money owed to you for any reason, U-SUE can help you have your debts paid by filing an action in Small Claims Court. We can force the debtor to deal with their obligation or risk having a judgement entered against them.

Unpaid invoices, NSF Cheques, Delinquent accounts, Unpaid Wages, Defaulted Loans are some of the matters we can initiate a civil claim for. We are more effective than a collection agency and get you results that are legally enforceable.

Breach of contract is a legal cause of action and a type of civil wrong, in which a binding agreement or bargained-for exchange is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract by non-performance or interference with the other party’s performance.

If it makes sense to file a Builders’ lien we have both regular and expedited services to ensure your interests are protected. Before you file a builders’ lien, there are a few items that you should understand about the process and the costs involved.

Often these cases have inadequate documentation at the beginning of the project. We can help you determine what information is relevant in Small Claims Court and also help determine what damages you can claim.

Landlord and Tenant disputes can be complicated and frustrating. Unpaid rent, breach of contract, and property damages are some common issues that arise throughout the course of a tenancy, U-SUE can help navigate the process.

Have you found yourself the defendant in a Civil Claim? U-SUE represents Defendants – those wrongfully sued – by defending the action in court and counterclaiming if required. We will advise you on the strength of your case, file the dispute note, develop a counter claim and represent you at all court appearances.
