Default kijiji lawyer

would you hire a lawyer who advertizes on kijiji and claiming to have years of experience?

Not without some research, same as any other lawyer.

OP....would you marry a woman from a dating site?

You get the gist, buyers beware. A pretty / provocative picture shouldn't be a reason for losing your sense of reasoning.

Janibel: That's so funny!

Iceberg: At first blush my reaction was I would not. Then again Kijiji is just another communication tool. So I would consider hiring the lawyer provided checks on the person were done and a consultation was held.

^ but even then just like dating, you will only be hearing what the person wants you to know. The hidden agenda e.g. taking you to the cleaners is masked by affection and pretense

^^^But then again, if you don't take a chance you may miss out on the "lawyer of your dreams". Seriously, it makes little difference where you find one be it kiijii, online, in a newspaper or referenced by a friend. You'll meet the person eye to eye eventually and with any luck, your gut instincts will kick in.

Were you actually looking on Kiijji for a lawyer or did you must see it by chance and want to know if anyone would actually use such a lawyer?

I am not sure it would be my first place to search for that particular profession.

I put something on kijiji about my situation. I was contacted by a guy who had a very similar situation and won in court. We chatted for a bit on the phone and he gave me his lawyers contact info. She's now my lawyer.

I looked for one just to see if there are any. I heard that only low profile business' advertize there. But I assume if a kijiji lawyer has 10 years experience must be better than a legal aid lawyer. BTW, the old lawyer with 27 years experience refused my file due to her being busy.

And legal aid immediately found me another lawyer wanna be and now requires me to fax a letter why I am refusing her too.

The agreement with legal aid was if the old lawyer refuses me I keep looking for a lawyer and will ask them to appoint one only if I need to. So I have to put in the fax even WHY I dont want the lawyer they found today besides the fact that I dont want one from them at all, yet, as we agreed.

weird
