Block fees billing portal delayed

Posted on: Friday, June 4, 2010

Due to some delays in the development of system applications, the anticipated new date for accepting block fee accounts on Legal Aid Ontario’s billing portal Legal Aid Online is July 11, 2010 instead of early June as previously announced.

LAO apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks its panel members for their patience, as we continue to fine tune the revised billing portal prior to roll out to make sure this important new system is working at an optimal level for our valued service providers.

For lawyers who wish to bill under the new block fees, there are two options:

a. You can continue to hold down accounts until the block fees billing portal is available; or

b. You can submit your accounts now, and LAO will pay them under the tariff
