SMALL CLAIMS

People rarely treat each other fairly. The fact of the matter is that many times people need to resort to the legal system in order to fight for what is fair and what is right.  In Connecticut, matters $5,000 or less can be pursued in Small Claims Court. It is called “small claims” because the amount of money you may recover is limited to $5,000.  The cost of beginning a case in Small Claims Court is also significantly less than the cost of starting a case in Superior Court.

Even if the case is started in Small Claims Court it can be transferred to Superior Court at a later time if that becomes necessary.  For many individuals Small Claims Court is an extremely effective tool for pursuing justice.
