Walmart Legal Services May Be Coming to a Store Near You


Axess Law is the newest innovation in discount retailing. Founded by two Toronto lawyers, Axess Law provides time-pressed shoppers with fast, affordable legal services at their local Walmart.

The first office opened in Markham, Ontario, and is open seven days a week until 8:00 p.m.  Two more have opened in the area since with one more scheduled to open next month.

Notary services, wills, real estate law, and powers of attorney are performed on-site while traffic tickets, family law, and personal injury are referred to other firms.  Axess offices offer simple wills for $99 and notarized documents for $25, plus $19 for each additional document.
