We Accept Legal Aid
The Lawyers at Bernstein Law Group have been approved by Legal Aid to represent clients with a Legal Aid certificate. It is sometimes very difficult to find a lawyer you can trust with your case and it may become more difficult when your finances are limited and you are restricted to a lawyer that accepts Legal Aid.
Our lawyers accept Legal Aid as it is part of our service to the community and meet our core values. We do not feel like any individual should be turned down based solely on their financial situation.
LEGAL AID CERTIFICATES
Legal Aid Ontario allows low-income individuals to apply for a certificate which is essentially a voucher allowing you to hire a lawyer to work on your case. Depending on the certificate, lawyers are allotted a certain number of hours to work on your case.
At Bernstein Law Group our lawyers often exercise their discretion and work extra hours to get the best result possible for the client.
OUR FIRM IS QUALIFIED TO ACCEPT THE MOST SERIOUS CASES
Depending on the seriousness of your offence, you may have to hire a lawyer that meets certain criteria from Legal Aid. Our lead lawyer, Stephen Bernstein, is qualified and takes on the most serious offences from Legal Aid such as murder.
If you have been accepted by Legal Aid and need a lawyer, contact our office immediately.
