Landlord and Tenant Board
Your home is a place that you are meant to be secure. When problems arise and go to the Landlord and Tenant Board -- whether brought by you or your landlord -- it can be upsetting, confusing, and intimidating to figure out what steps to take next.
I offer affordable legal services -- limited scope or full representation -- to people who appear before the Landlord and Tenant Board. I can do limited tasks, such as helping to complete replies, fill in forms, file papers, and/or explain what evidence can and cannot be used in a hearing (limited scope). I can also work on your matter from beginning to end and represent you at the hearing before the Board (full representation).
I also act as Tenant Duty Counsel on a contract basis for Legal Assistance Windsor (LAW). Tenants who do not have access to legal advice can meet with me to get free legal advice before their mediation and/or hearing on the day of their hearing at their Landlord and Tenant Board hearing. This is true even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tenants can sign up for Tenant Duty Counsel before your hearing at: www.tdc.acto.ca.
Money should not determine who gets justice. People with Legal Aid certificates are welcome. I also offer lower-cost legal services for people trying to leave domestic violence situations.
Despite best intentions, justice is not blind. My advocacy recognizes that people often face prejudices based on race, sexual orientation, gender, trans identity, cognitive and physical abilities, and income. I work to highlight these realities and strive to get fair and just results for my clients.
Access to justice should be available to everyone.
