Representation

CLASP will go and appear with you to different legal settings, such as a court or tribunal. We will review and take all the necessary steps regarding your case, while working closely with you and discussing your options. CLASP will prepare you and possible witnesses for trials, hearings, mediations or negotiations, and will work with you to gather evidence to support your case.

Summary Legal Advice

Summary legal advice is general legal information that tells you about the law and its application to the circumstances of your particular case.  We will offer to complete a summary advice application in which case a student will research the problem and prepare a written response that will be reviewed by one of our lawyers.

Summary advice does not offer a guarantee of certain outcomes for your case and we encourage you to seek full legal representation regarding your case.
