Unbundled Legal Services an Underused Access-to-Justice Solution
Unbundled legal services can fill the access-to-justice gap left by spiralling legal fees and dwindling legal aid funding.
“I believe there is this large market of people who are unable to access traditional legal services because they either make too much money to qualify for legal aid, or their province doesn’t offer legal aid services in family law,” says Sixta, founder of Crossroads Law. “Even if you do have more money, you don’t necessarily have enough to pay a lawyer $5,000 per day to go court and run a trial for you. “At our firm, we want to emphasize the potential for unbundled legal services to fill this gap in access to justice,” he adds.
