Frequently Asked Questions
Is there parking at the Lindsay courthouse?
There is limited parking at the courthouse itself, but there is parking next door at the grocery store.
Where can I get something to eat near the courthouse or Aitken Robertson?
Near our office there’s a Tim Hortons on the other side of the intersection of Kent St and Victoria Ave. Just down the road on Kent St you’ll find a Pizza Pizza and several local eateries. Just across the road from the Lindsay Court House is a Boston Pizza, a Popeyes, and a Pizza Hut. There is a Loblaw’s grocery store next door.
I can’t afford the cost of a lawyer, what are my options?
We offer a no interest payment plan that we personalize based on your financial needs. If it would be difficult for you to pay legal fees in one lump sum don’t worry, you can pay a small amount over a length of time instead.
I work until 5pm, can I do a consultation after 5pm?
Absolutely. While our offices normally close at 5pm, we recognize that for many people a meeting time during working hours can be difficult. If you need special accommodations for a consultation let us know and we’ll try to schedule an afterhours telephone consultation.
I can’t miss work for court, do I have to take time off?
Of course not! Once you’ve signed the paperwork permitting us to appear as your representative in court we can speak on your behalf and you’re not required to go in. There are exceptions, for example if you’ll be pleading or the case goes to trial, but we’ll discuss all of this with you and give you notice if you’ll need to be in court.
