  1. How does JusticeNet work?
    When using JusticeNet's website for the first time, the user is asked to select from one of three professions: lawyers, mediators or paralegals. This selection is remembered and the website is tailored to that profession. Users can then browse JusticeNet's online directory and locate a professional in the field they require who is in their area. As each professional will only take a limited number of clients you may need to call more than one professional listed in the directory to make an appointment.
  2. Who qualifies for this service?
    JusticeNet is currently available to anyone living in Ontario whose net family income is under $59,000, and who is ineligible for provincial legal aid.
  3. Is a professional (lawyer, mediator, paralegal, law firm, etc.) listed on this directory obliged to take my case?
    No. Each participating professional or firm may set their own limits as to the number of JusticeNet cases they wish to take for a given period of time. Please contact each desired professional directly to determine their availability.
  4. Is the information in this Directory up-to-date?
    We make every effort to keep the information contained in this website current. To do so, we rely on the listed professionals to regularly provide us with correct and up-to-date information. Therefore, we suggest that you get in touch with your chosen professional directly to confirm any necessary details found on this site (for example, practice opening hours).

Testimonial

“Our justice system will be further strengthened with the introduction of the JusticeNet program, as it will serve to complement existing access to justice programs intended for people who do not qualify for legal aid.”
