Lawyers and Lattes is Toronto's first law cafe
Looking for someone to help you with a rental agreement? A pre-nup, maybe? A divorce? Maybe you need to register a trademark, or write a legal will.
Whatever the case, at some point in your fabulous adult life, you're probably going to need a lawyer (or at the very least some legal advice).
Now, with the launch of a unique new spot on Eglinton Avenue West, you can find one lickety-split without needing to search for a firm or their rates. Also, there's coffee. And macarons.
Lawyers and Lattes, now open at 511 Eglinton W., is the first cafe of its kind in Canada: A legal cafe. Essentially, it's a cute restaurant where anyone can go to get help from a lawyer. The team also hosts free legal seminars, from time to time.
The rates for all home, business, family and even tax-related legal jobs are listed in plain sight on the website, too, so you know what you're paying for up front.
A purchase and sale agreement costs $99, for instance, while a notary stamp will only run you about $25. More complicated services like a business incorporation or separation agreement will cost you a fair bit more, but often they're necessary evils.
What Lawyers and Lattes provides, aside from a more convenient way to access legal help, is the option to work with a lawyer while eating pulled BBQ mushroom sandwiches and drinking flat whites.
You really can't put a price on that.
Just kidding, you can. It's $9.99 for the sandwich and $3.49 for the drink. Avoiding all of those unnecessary hours in a stuffy law office, though? That's free.
