Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2014/01/27 - It is estimated that more than half of Canadians do not have a legal will, and nearly three-fourths do not have powers of attorney - GoLegal.ca.
However, these documents are crucial for ensuring that an individual’s wishes regarding assets and/or medical care are honored following their death or incapacity. Ontarians who are looking for an easy and affordable way to create wills, powers of attorney, and incorporation documents can now turn to GoLegal.ca.
GoLegal.ca was founded in 2013 by the legal professionals at Grinhaus Law Firm in Toronto. The company has a business model, unique in Canada, that makes legal services available online for a low, reasonable cost. Personal wills start at just $99, and powers of attorney are priced from $49.
”Having worked in large law firms, I know that the cost of legal services can be a barrier for many people,” said Aaron Grinhaus, Founder of GoLegal.ca. “We created GoLegal.ca so that regular people can have access to quality legal services without paying downtown prices.”
To obtain completed legal documents, an individual must simply visit GoLegal.ca and create an account. He or she will then gain access to simple online questionnaires that can be filled out from the comfort of his or her own home, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. After a questionnaire is completed, the information is sent to a lawyer, who will then create the desired document, review it for accuracy and legality, and then send it to the customer.
”There is no need to take off work to meet with lawyers and struggle with traffic and transit to get down to their offices,” Mr. Grinhaus said. “GoLegal.ca was designed to afford people the opportunity to take advantage of legal services at their convenience, from the comfort of their own home.”
In addition to wills and powers of attorney, GoLegal.ca also offers incorporation services to Ontario businesses, making this website a powerful tool for entrepreneurs. A full minute book of incorporation documents from GoLegal.ca is only $149, not including government fees and taxes, which are the same no matter which service you use.
”People needlessly spend thousands incorporating simple home or small businesses with lawyers,” Mr. Grinhaus said. “GoLegal.ca gets you set up for one low flat fee, with all documents and filings completed, so that you’re ready to start business right away.”
