Greetings! I am a legal expert on the site and am working on your question.
Ask Your Own Legal Question
If the defendant is in Canada, yes. Always pursue where defendant is located for venue and enforcement.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.please let me know if that is acceptable by replying "Yes" or "acceptable".

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
