Got A Case? Need Legal Help?

Civil Litigation

Civil cases can be complex and usually involve various steps. At its most basic, civil litigation is the area of law that covers private lawsuits – cases in which an individual or a corporation sues another party because of a disagreement over a legal matter. These legal matters can range from contractual disputes to disputes over the ownership of property, and other disputes. Generally, there are three main stages to any civil lawsuit: the pleadings stage, the discovery stage, and the trial stage.

During the trial, the party who has initiated the lawsuit or filed a Statement of Claim – also known as the “plaintiff” – presents the facts or evidence to support the case made against the other party – the “defendant”. In a civil suit, the plaintiff must prove that it is probable that the defendant is legally responsible, or “liable” for the damage caused.

The most common remedy in a civil suit is monetary in nature and is knows as damages however, sometimes injunctive relief or declarations can be sought. Because civil cases are mostly decided on a balance of probabilities, strategy is an important aspect of civil litigations. This’s why it is so important to obtain legal counsel with many years of experience. At Proton Law we have some of the most experienced civil lawyers in North York who can help you achieve the desired result.

Types Of Civil Actions

Contract & Collections

Contract law is the branch of jurisprudence that addresses the rights and obligations of parties entering into contracts. Canadian contract law is rooted in the English common law tradition and principles of equity. Parties must have the intention to enter into a legal relationship and be capable to contract with one-another through three main elements – offer, acceptance and consideration. Our attorneys can assist you in drafting and negotiating various contracts, as well as ensuring that your rights and interests are protected.

Corporate Disputes

Landlord and Tenant Disputes (Residential & Commercial)
Our lawyers and paralegals have unmatched expertise in Landlord-Tenant Disputes, and have argued at many Landlord and Tenant Board hearings. Our team can help you understand your rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA), and resolve any landlord-tenant issues such as non-payment of rent, damage to property, and eviction proceedings.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

At Proton Law our civil lawyers can assist you in resolving disagreements without going to trial – through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). The increase of the caseload in courts, and the relatively cheap cost of ADR have contributed to its rising popularity. ADR is especially popular if the parties wish to resolve the dispute confidentially, or wish to have greater control over the selection of the individual or individuals who will decide the outcome of the dispute – such as a mediator. Others wish to mend or maintain existing relationships and prefer to negotiate, rather than go to court.

Testimonials

What our clients are saying.

If I could give David Costa more than 5 stars I would. The moment that I called him in 2015, I knew right away that he was the right person to represent my son. He gave my son a list of things to do to help his case. David replied to every email that I sent to him and answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same questions. He even talked to my son when he thought my son was not doing enough to get the best possible outcome. We are pleased with the outcome of the case. Excellent lawyer! Highly recommended! Definitely North York’s Top Lawyer!

David Costa was my brother’s defense lawyer on a first degree murder charge. I called the lawyer the moment my brother was arrested. There was absolutely no physical evidence against my brother. There were alibi witnesses and coroner evidence that he could not have killed the victim. And Mr. Costa did everything we asked him to do as our lawyer. He called the alibi witnesses, he made sure all evidences are preserved, he hired a PI and did an investigation of his own. He did everything he could to save my brother from jail. Our whole family is grateful to David Costa for his knowledge, experience, support and strong motivation. David is a very good man.

The charges I had were dismissed, however along the way I spoke to a couple lawyers. I stuck with David because I could tell he had a level of knowledge others didn’t. He also was always very quick to get back to me. If I ever need a lawyer in the future it will be David for sure and I also recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

The best adoption lawyer in North York! David Costa walked us through everything, and was with us every second on the big day! We did not have many face to face meetings, as he communicates very well via email. This is definitely a lawyer who takes his time to do it correctly. We honestly can’t thank him enough!

Mr. Costa was a great help with my custody case. He walked me through the process step-by-step and gave me some useful tips. I am relieved now that I got a full custody of my daughter. Back than I was quite shaken by the circumstances and his confidence really was just what I needed.

Back in 2017, my nephew was accused of a fraud over $5000, he was only 19 and my family felt horrible for him. Proton Law did everything to defend him and was able to help him. We are very grateful to David and his team and strongly recommend them.

David was handling my DUI case and I could not be more grateful. I gave him a call right after I got arrested, he calmed me down and gave me an action plan. I don’t know how things would turn out if I would go with another lawyer. This guy is worth every penny spent on his services.

Back in 2009 I was a troublesome young man and managed to get a criminal record. Time have passed and I changed, but my record remained as a reminder of my past, reminder that made my life more difficult than needed.  I was referred to David Costa by one of my friends who also had a similar experience. He helped me to get a pardon and today my record is clean. I feel like that weight is finally off my shoulders.

David worked on my sister in law sponsorship application. She is from Bulgaria and the immigration process from that country to Canada is pretty complex. My brother told us David was always reachable, answered every question they had and most importantly, my sister in law is now in Canada with us!

I had a DUI charge and was very anxious about it as you can imagine. Looking for a bail lawyer I scheduled meetings at several law firms. Costa was my third meeting and the moment we set down with him I knew he should represent me. He is compassionate and honest guy who genuinely wants best for his clients. I can't thank him enough for all the help with my case.
