Legal counsel, though sometimes necessary, is rarely cheap. We all tend to think of our personal legal situation as ‘routine’, but is it? What does a transaction have to be worth before it justifies hiring counsel?
Most of the ‘law’ is actually available for free. Legislation, regulations, and case law are widely available, if you know where to look. But who has that kind of time? How do you analyze and interpret all of this information to apply it to your problem?
Fortunately, you can do a little research on your own, and see if you think obtaining legal counsel is worth it in your situation. If your problem is indeed simple, a legal kit may be adequate to resolve your problem or answer your questions. If not, you may at least discover why, and perhaps save time by going to your lawyer prepared with most of the documents and information they may need.
For some, the only means to gain access to justice is through inexpensive resources such as these. They simply do not have the means to hire a lawyer, no matter how justified it would be in the given situation.
Self Counsel Press is Canada’s leading publisher of self help books and legal ‘kits’. Although there are a number of online legal document resources, Self Counsel is the only major publisher still offering a wide variety of actual bound paper volumes of Canadian legal self help literature, in addition to the ubiquitous downloadable content. For those of us that still prefer to learn through the tactile experience of a physical book, this is definitely worth it. It also comes in very handy when your laptop and phone are low on power – no battery required! Many titles are of course also available on CD, and in downloadable formats, for those that want to save a few bucks, or just want it now.
Red Seal Notary is proud to offer Self Counsel publications for sale in its Toronto retail walk in locations. We also offer links to Self Counsel Press below for those that wish to purchase their titles directly. Red Seal Notary Inc. earns a modest commission on your purchase, but this does not increase the sale price.
