A New Approach To Legal Services
Granger Legal was established in April 2011 by the Honourable B. T.Granger Q.C. a retired judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The Honourable B. T. Granger has 46 years of experience in the justice system as a senior litigation partner at Lerner & Associates in London ON and as a trial judge. The Honourable B.T.Granger established Granger Legal with a focus and goal of reducing legal fees while ensuring the delivery of high quality legal services in a timely manner and thereby improving access to justice.
granger legal will assist the public in:
- Drafting documents
- Attempting to negotiate a settlement
- Attending on mediations or arbitrations
- Providing second opinions
Granger Legal can assist lawyers or law firms in reducing their overhead expenses fees charged to clients while at the same time assisting lawyers and law firms in increasing their client base, by undertaking on a contract basis:
- Disclosure proceedings, including electronic disclosure.
- Preparation of Affidavit of Documents.
- Conduct cross examinations and examinations for discovery.
- Trial preparation.
- Legal research.
Granger Legal will at all times encourage clients who have retained a lawyer to continue that relationship, as changing lawyers is expensive and can delay the legal process.
Granger Legal is a sole practitioner law office and its fixed overhead expenses will in most cases be lower than most law offices and as a result can provide high quality legal services at a lower hourly rate. By outsourcing legal services to Granger Legal, law firms only pay for services when needed and can reduce their ongoing fixed overhead costs.
Granger Legal’s fees for the services it provides will be modest and affordable and therefore will be cost effective for lawyers and their clients without compromising the high quality legal service it provides.
B.T. Granger Q.C, the principal, of Granger Legal will apply his experience as a trial lawyer and trial judge in assisting lawyers in evidentiary issues, trial strategies, witness preparation and courtroom presentation including the use of electronic documents in the courtroom and settlement negotiations. These services can be provided on short notice, if emergencies arise.
Granger Legal also offers a general mediation/arbitration service in all areas of the law. Mr. Granger has expertise in the area of mediating settlement of custody, access, child support, spousal support and property disputes or arbitrating a resolution of such disputes. The fees charged for mediation/arbitration services will take into account the financial means of the parties.
