If you live in Toronto, Canada, you’ve probably heard of me. I was the first lawyer to advertise prices for legal services in Ontario. My law firm has seven offices in the GTA. We are also Canadian trademark agents.
I’m working on new and better ways of helping you through law reform, new products and services. Drop us a line or email and let us know what we can do to serve you better.
In 1980, I was working as in-house counsel at the Toronto Star. For the first time I became a client. The legal bills from the outside firm were huge. The bills weren’t broken down by lawyer or matter. No one wanted to discuss the bills. No one wanted to give price quotes. The average wait in the waiting room was forty minutes. Telephone calls were returned only after a few days.
I saw a real market opportunity! Why not practice in retail space with low advertised prices and provide service? Jane Harvey Associates was born. Our price list is still our “logo”. Thankfully the Toronto and Canadian media liked the idea and gave a lot of free media coverage because lawyers still weren’t allowed to advertise. Finally, in 1987, after a lot of hot debate and work, the Law Society of Upper Canada allowed lawyer advertising.
We look after all your legal problems. We provide legal services of every type from eight locations in the Greater Toronto Area, throughout Ontario by 1-800 telephone number and the internet. We don’t just offer legal products; we determine what you need and suggest the best, least expensive and easiest course of action for you.
We practice family, real estate, wills + estates and business law.
