Allison Speigel’s Open Letter to the Legal Profession & the Ministry of the Attorney General: How Courts Can Step up to Save Drowning Civil Justice System

Our civil justice system was drowning before the COVID-19 crisis hit. It was being pushed under by the weight of our overly complicated rules; a scarcity of resources; and, perhaps most importantly, a lack of innovation and willingness to change. It costs far too much and takes far too long to litigate a claim. Most Ontarians have been priced out of accessing civil justice.

Allison Speigel’s The Globe and Mail Article on Taking Over the Family Business

In 2013, I was disenchanted with the legal profession and skeptical about the traditional legal model. There was so much that I wanted to do differently – for example, revamping billing practices and improving the work environment. Although I wanted to create an alternative law firm, I was not ready to hang out my own shingle. And thus began conversations with my father and uncle, two partners in a seven-lawyer law firm. I joined the firm with the understanding that I would be part of the firm’s succession plan.
