Offering Bay Street legal services in Burlington

Frederikse Law

Value. When people think of lawyers, value is not often the first thing that comes to mind. However, value is what you receive at Frederikse Law. Our experience in litigation matters helps us to guide you around the landmines that can exist in your real estate, commercial transactions, commercial leasing and will and estates matters. Those landmines can lead to frustration about the process, high legal bills and expensive litigation. The value to our clients is in educating them about their legal situation, negotiating in a cost-effective manner, and keeping them out of the courtroom. That way, they can concentrate on what they value, whether it is their newly acquired real estate, their business or the peace of mind knowing that their wishes will be carried out after their death. Frederikse Law also offers paralegal services for traffic tickets and Small Claims Court matters. Our paralegal is licensed with the Law Society of Upper Canada. She can help you deal with that pesky traffic ticket that can cause you to lose time from work and increase your insurance premiums. She can also assist with your Small Claims Court action.

About Vanessa Pereira 

Vanessa Pereira is a paralegal, licenced with the Law Society of Upper Canada. Vanessa became a licenced paralegal in part because of her love of modified cars. Vanessa specializes in traffic offences because she can relate. She can relate to being pulled over and given a ticket and not knowing what options are available. She can relate to not knowing whether she stands a chance fighting a traffic ticket. She can relate to not wanting to take days off from work to sit in a court room waiting for her name to be called. She can relate to being involved in an unfamiliar process and feeling that she did not have any other option but to agree to whatever “deal” was being offered. She can relate to wanting someone to give her a helping hand. Now Vanessa is that helping hand. She will deal with the unfamiliar and sometimes overwhelming process for you, so that you do not have to choose between taking time off from work to fight a ticket, or risk increased insurance premiums. Vanessa can relate, which is why helping you is her passion.
