Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
The lawyers on this site cannot act for you.
I can answer your questions or I can suggest how to find a lawyer in Calgary.
If you want me to go ahead then please let me know how you wish for me to proceed.
I am sorry but there are not lawyers that will take a case like this on a contingency fee basis.
That is generally reserved for cases where the outcome is going to end in an award for significant damages such as in a personal injury case.
But there are lawyers that will not charge that much. A less experienced lawyer will have lower rates and you don't need a very experienced lawyer for a case against a landlord.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.The number is:***-***-**** in Calgary
When you call say you are looking for a lawyer that acts for tenants.
As well, there are legal aid clinics that specialize in tenant's rights. I suggest you contact Legal Guidance and ask for some help as to how to get some help with your case:
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
