Legal Aid Ontario provides legal assistance to people who cannot afford private counsel. In the family law context, Legal Aid Ontario issues “Certificates” to those who qualify. Eligibility is assessed according to the prospective client’s particular legal issue and financial situation. Once acquired, a Certificate acts as a coupon for free legal services for a certain number of hours. It is then the client’s prerogative to retain a suitable lawyer who accepts Legal Aid Certificates.
At Nussbaum Law, we understand that private legal fees are far too burdensome for most litigants. As such, we happily accept Legal Aid Certificates, and we pride ourselves in providing top legal representation to those in need.
