Navigating the Labyrinth of Law

While a lot of us at PLLC may not be familiar with the rising cost of litigation (understandably so given our young age), more and more Canadians are having difficulties gaining equal access to justice in non-criminal matters. For the most underprivileged of us in the community, this distinction is even more daunting, especially since […]
