Lawyers and Legal Professionals Rely on Legal Line

images-1

 

I was just reading about Legal Line which I had not (sorry) been aware of before. I am glad to be better informed now, because we can share and promote your page at the National Self-Represented Litigants Project.

If you would like to talk some time to discuss possible collaborations, I am very open to that. Your work is awesome.

We originally received pamphlets from another of our field offices. Although the primary role of this office is to offer legal advice to the Commander and his senior officers, we receive numerous requests from all members of the Canadian Forces on a variety of issues. These requests generally deal with requests for lawyer referral; Ombudsman’s number; debt and bankruptcy; family law; criminal law, etc. Please forward 500 free Legal Line.

The Attorney General’s website sent me to Legal Line. I was happy to easily connect with you and translate your flyer into Turkish and see it uploaded to your website within one week… (you are fast). I am an internationally trained Lawyer and a native Turkish speaker who just moved to Canada last year; waiting for the accreditation process to complete so that i may practice law in Canada.

Received materials delivered to my office. (would like more). I will display them in the reception area which has a high volume of clients as there are approx 30 lawyers at this address.. Any materials that are easy to understand for non-lawyers is always a positive experience.

I am a lawyer practising in Kelowna, BC and I have found your text on Criminal Records invaluable. I am hopeful that you are able to help me answer a question for a matter I am speaking to tomorrow.

I have a youth client against whom the Crown wishes to impose a Peace Bond under s. 810 of the Criminal Code. The YCJA seems to be silent on the ultimate removal of an expired 810 bond. I am wondering what the mechanism is for purging a youth record of an 810 peace bond. There is some talk here that there might be difficulty expunging such an entry from a youth record. Any help you might provide is greatly appreciated.

I appreciate that you are busy and I thank you in advance for your time.

The lawyers in our office are advisors to the Crown Attorney. With our office located in a Canadian Forces Defence establishment, we have many military members dropping in with questions of a personal nature. As our lawyers are not allowed to assist these individuals, I provide them with a copy of your guide.

I learned about legal line through my own personal research on how to become more involved with community work and providing access to justice. Given how much information I see LegalLine provides, I believe that LegalLine will tremendously help my clients by providing them navigable, easy to read material that explains their most common questions. I this this is particularly accurate for the materials intended for my Indigenous clients. I plan to provide your material in person upon the completion of consults as well as on my website as free available legal resources.

Sabrina Molinari, Lawyer

Thank you for filling my request for more Legal Line brochures. I find them quite handy and they are prominently displayed in my reception area. I similarly send them out in my real estate reporting letters on client sales, as well as wills and estates. When I am asked for background information on estates, wills and powers of attorney, I refer my clients to the Legal line website by providing the Legal Line brochure. Earlier this year, I sent a promotional letter to real estate agents and mortgage agents about my services and I included a Legal Line brochure.

I have made further use by giving clients the brochure to make them aware of basic legal facts on a subject rather than an office interview, particularly if it is in an area I don’t deal with regularly. If permissible, I will link to Legal Line.

George W. Taylor, Q.C.

Would like 25 flyers and guides. Would be able to distribute material to clients and prospective clients. Clients would be more informed and get basic answers from your materials, ask better questions.

I heard about Legal Line when I made a list of community resources and referrals for ineligible clients when I was working as the Triage Coordinator for Pro Bono Ontario’s walk-in legal assistance clinic at the Ottawa Courthouse. I can assist with the following types of matters:

As a lawyer at the Ottawa Legal Information Centre, we often use your online resources and refer people to them. Legal Line resources provide easy to understand information to individuals. I will make sure that the flyers are on display in the waiting rooms and make them available to our staff lawyers.

I work under a respected lawyer and team that has all their clients best interest at heart.

I learned about Legal Line from an online legal aid search in need of convenient and reliable legal assistance. I will distribute these flyers and guides to the members of my pre-law association. Legal Line is a revolutionary resource that has a tremendous impact on the lives of so many people in need of free and quick legal assistance. These flyers and guides will provide individuals with a point of contact and reference for whatever legal issues they may be facing.

Also, these resources may also be used as educational tools for aspiring lawyers to become better-versed in Canadian and provincial laws to strengthen their knowledge and prepare them for a future in law. Legal questions constantly arise, so having this quick and easy-to-use resource is invaluable for those in need.

I initially found Legal Line through Google while doing research for law cases. I have been distributing your flyers and guides in our lobby waiting area for years. You help the lawyers and legal assistants in our firm by offering quick answers and contact information. Clients like it because it gives them easy-to-understand legal information.

We would like to order 6 guides in order to assist callers by providing Legal Line resource to our callers as well. We do not need 50 guides, but there is no way to select less than 50, we just need 6 guides please and one free book. Please contact me if you have any questions.

This office provides paralegal services. I am aware of Legal Line through the LSUC. Brochures will be available for distribution to clients and potential clients asking for legal advice that is out-of-scope and to not-for-profit agencies that refer persons to me. Legal Line allows me to ensure that these persons have a starting place to resolve their legal questions without the potential liability that could ensue from a referral to another specific legal practitioner. The majority of persons who contact me are unable to afford a lawyer and many have simple procedural questions.

I am an Ontario lawyer who offers a number of public education seminars each year for libraries, banks, churches, and other organizations in the areas of family law, wills & estates, as well as general legal advice question and answer sessions. I will distribute these pamphlets and guides to clients and attendees at these events. Legal Line will help my clients and event attendees have a better understanding of legal issues and material to read on their own time. Thank you for providing these services.

As a former practicing lawyer and retired Executive Director of the Manitoba Law Foundation, I have watched the development of public legal information systems across Canada for the past 13 years. After completing an in-depth analysis, I report that the telephone and internet system developed by Legal Line is the most sophisticated electronic retrieval method I have ever encountered. The Directors of Legal Line have spent all of the time necessary to develop a public legal information system of the best possible quality, and they have obtained the cooperation of hundreds of lawyers with the finest of reputations.

We are funded by Legal Aid Ontario, covering areas of law not eligible for a Legal Aid Certificate. We cover Ontario Works appeals, Ontario Disability appeals, Workers Compensation issues, landlord issues, Human Rights issues, Criminal Injuries Compensation, some Consumer Debt problems (Collection Agency harassment), and occasional Small Claims Court (Seniors Disabled only). We first heard of Legal Line in the Lawyers Weekly paper. I went into the site myself and found the information to be quite informative. We have your pamphlet posted in the waiting area. Not all our clients have access to the internet, which is why I really like your 24 hour telephone recorded answers.

The WLA, first incorporated in 1894 with 38 lawyers, now strives to keep 540 members and articling students informed and involved in issues that affect the practice of law.

We first heard of Legal Line through a lawyer who has accessed the site to gather information in areas that are not her specialty. It is a useful service for our Legal Clinic because we are only here to provide family law advice. We will be providing the guides to clients who have questions on subjects that are unrelated.

This free website and call-in service will be a helpful first step for people coming into contact with the criminal justice system. It will assist them in assessing the seriousness of charges, the nature of the offence in issue, and whether they will need a lawyer to assist them in dealing with the matter. The information provided by Legal Line should reduce some of the stress and anxiety of being involved in the court system by providing basic information to aid in understanding a difficult situation.

I have been practicing law in the Province of Ontario for over 41 years and for the past number of years I have confined my practice to the field of Family Law. I took the opportunity to review all of the material sent to lawyers, before making the decision to volunteer my time and become one of your ‘Reviewing Lawyers’. I must say that I was very impressed with the information provided, and I would like to volunteer my effort to such a worthy endeavour !

I first heard of this service from a local lawyer’s office. I then became familiar with your website. I think that this is a much needed service for the public, which allows them to make more informed decisions about their LIFE. We will be using these guides primarily as a helpful guide for individuals going through separation and divorce.

Thanks to Legal Line, Ontario now has an accessible and practical legal information source… the design of the brochure is wonderful. You put all of that information into an easily transportable form, so easy to post on a wall, or carry in a pocket or bag. For the immigrant clients who call me 24-7, often in a state of crisis with problems outside my practice area, language is a constant obstacle to surmount. With Legal Line now available in 65 languages, this is no longer a barrier. Many positive reports from referrals to Legal Line give me total confidence that my clients appreciate the valuable information that they receive, when they need it. Your growth and popularity is not a surprise to me. I am proud to have contributed as a volunteer ‘reviewing lawyer’.

It was a pleasure working with you on this project. While I have only reviewed this particular area, the reference material gives solid, basic advice which, in many cases, would not be economic for the public to access directly from lawyers. By creating a more informed consumer, Legal Line will actually help to generate business for lawyers. Often times, the public is hesitant to go see a lawyer when they are uncertain as to whether they really need one. Individuals who access Legal Line will have taken an anonymous and inexpensive first step towards determining that they in fact have a legal problem and need to get legal assistance.

Like many lawyers, I have noticed the Legal Line pamphlets in courts, libraries, clinics and government offices. It is of great benefit to the community. When I witnessed, firsthand, your sincerity and commitment to this project and came to understand the enormity of this undertaking, I was at a loss for words to express my admiration for you and Antree. When I meet people like you, I am reminded of the tremendous potential people have for improving the fabric of our society, and for bringing people together to perform acts of kindness.

Congratulations. It is important for non-lawyers to have ready access to clear information that will help guide their decisions. Legal Line can help people with problems such as: recognize and identify legal issues that require research or attention; understand their legal rights in situations of potential conflict; recognize when they should call a lawyer; receive guidance to help them avoid increasing their exposure to liability when they have not retained legal counsel; receive guidance on governmental, agency or other resources that can assist in problem resolution if they do not have counsel; and, provide a path to legal resources. I am pleased to be a participant in this worthy program.

Our company works for a variety of lawyers, one of whom gave me a copy of your free poster. I must say it is one of the best, most professionally presented public service pieces I have ever seen. You have captured the essence of topics which the average person frequently wonders or asks about in their daily lives but doesn’t know where to turn for an answer. Following this guide will allow absolutely anyone and everyone to have a basic understanding of many topics, while at the same time not feeling embarrassed about needing to know such information.

Your product, in my view, will serve to create a far more informed consumer which in turn should assist in not only resolving disputes, but actually avoid problems in the first place. Congratulations for this outstanding presentation. You even have the same telephone number with and without the toll free index. Well done.

We operate LawHelpOntario.org. I heard about Legal Line through the Volunteer Lawyers Service (VLS) through The Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC). I think it is a great service. Our projects serve people who are suing or being sued in civil (non-family) court, children and youth, and charitable organizations. PBLO does NOT provide assistance with family or criminal law matters. We use Legal Line to help individuals who require legal advice and guidance with their legal matters.

I recently received your poster and tried some of the Criminal Law items, as well as one of your pre-recorded items on immigration. This project interests me and I wish to become a part of it. My practice is restricted to Criminal Law. I was called to the Bar in 1985, after graduating from the University of Toronto. I have worked as a Judge’s Law Clerk, a Crown Attorney, a researcher at the Law Reform Commission of Canada and have been in private practice for the past 11 years.

I recently received a copy of the Legal Line directory and had an opportunity to listen to many of the pre-recorded information segments offered through your service. I also read a great deal on your website. I must say I was very impressed with your service for a number of reasons. The feature I liked the best is that the information was explained in simple, easy to understand terms for the average layman, yet also dealt with issues that can become complex when examined in detail. Another important factor is the accuracy of the legal information, especially when explaining complicated matters.

Legal Line has very successfully balanced the dilemma of providing general information about specific legal issues, without providing information that is so specific to a particular person or group of persons that it has no significance for most people. I have no hesitation in recommending the Legal Line service to my clients, and in addition, I am offering my time to join your list of ‘reviewing lawyers’.

I found out about Legal Line from the Essex County Law Association, which serves a current membership of over 600 lawyers in Windsor and Essex County. I also heard good things about you at the The Halton County Law Association (HCLA). Each Association continually endeavours to encourage, develop and manage programs for the professional education of its members, although the Law Library staff cannot provide legal advice or research assistance to the public. For this reason, I am finding your website very helpful, and I will continue to use it.

I am writing to offer my services as a referring lawyer for Legal Line in the areas of mediation and arbitration. I lecture for several groups both in Toronto and Peel region on family law & mediation, as well as presenting at the mandatory Family Information Sessions in the Superior Court of Justice.

I am very interested in the Legal Line as an adjunct service to clients. Legal Line provides information to the parties in all matters that touch on a family dispute.

It is important that there is a place where people can obtain fundamental information that can assist them in solving legal problems and that can help them determine criteria when interviewing lawyers to represent them.

It is a pleasure to be one of your ‘Reviewing Lawyers’. I was most intrigued by your high quality Legal Line Guide and the vast number of topics it covers. In particular, I was impressed to see a section on Investments and Securities. This is my area of work. I am a lawyer and annual leader at the Ontario Bar Admission Course in the area of Estate Planning and Administration. I am also a frequent speaker for Federal Government employees through Training and Development Canada. Unlike most lawyers, I am also educated, trained and licensed in the Securities and Insurance fields.

I want to express my congratulations on your very impressive and comprehensive Legal Line. I have listened to the pre-recorded information, and I have also logged on to the website. The topics I chose where presented clearly, professionally and completely. This service is invaluable to the public to obtain legal information. As well, I think that your service is an indispensable tool for lawyers to have in order to service their clients more completely and quickly. The 24-hour service and Government & Agency numbers in one handy, colourful and easy to use pamphlet is a major step towards meeting the goal of ‘Access to Justice’ along with a convenient source of referrals. Congratulations on your hard work and efforts to produce such an excellent and all-inclusive legal portfolio.

You have done a fine job with both your website and especially with the Legal Line telephone access, given that I am a lawyer in a legal clinic where our clients are low-income and may not have internet access.

Stephen Bird, LL.B.

As a lawyer who has confined his practice to the representation of individual employees, particularly in Union / Labour issues before the Ontario and Canada Labour Boards, I wish to complement Legal Line for the great job it does. Having had an opportunity to review Legal Line in 2 ways, by telephone, which I found to be clear, concise, prompt and efficient, and also on your website, I am confident that the public will find this legal information most helpful.

It is a great help to my practice to have a service like Legal Line, where employees can find the answers to their more basic legal questions and be directed to lawyers practising in the areas of their particular problem. Legal Line saves me time, by answering the simpler questions on Labour / Union issues. I am pleased to offer you my assistance in keeping your information up to date in the area of Union / Labour Issues.

In 1997 I obtained my double Honours B.A. in psychology and criminology from York University. In 2002, I graduated with my LL.B. from Queen’s University School of Law. As a law student at Queen’s, I took part in the Correctional Law Program – representing Federal Inmates before the National Parole Board of Canada, Institutional Disciplinary Hearings and Inmate Appeals. I articled with Thomson Rogers, a civil litigation law firm in downtown Toronto and was called to the bar in 2003. Then I practiced law as a civil litigator with Rafael Partners LLP for a short while, until joining Edward Greenspan’s office as an associate criminal lawyer.

At Greenspan’s office, I worked on several high profile trials and appeals to the Ontario Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court of Canada.

I have reviewed all of your Legal Line materials and I have listened to many various topic areas. I must say, the concept is brilliant. I focused on, and was particularly impressed with the depth of information provided in your criminal law section. I confirm that I would be willing to accept calls from your Criminal Law section with the willingness to assist Legal Line callers.

I came across your site and particularly your page on mediation. You provide some great content and resources (thank you for including Mediate BC in your links!).

Mediate BC also has the largest publicly accessible listing of mediators in BC and some of the highest admission requirements and some programs designed to increase the accessibility of mediation to all peoples in BC. Mediate BC also created the first guidelines for the practice of Med-Arb – a hybrid process of mediation and arbitration that has its own unique ethical and procedural particularities.

There are several other programs and options for people in BC to access mediation services. I would be pleased to provide you with more information as it’s important to have this information readily available to the public.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss how Mediate BC can help support and contribute to the service you provide the public.
