Beyond the trials, I find great satisfaction when it is possible for the parties to agree on an out-of-court settlement, avoiding the costs and the stress of attending court. If the settlement of a case is not possible, I am convinced to represent my clients well before the various judicial bodies which I must plead.
I find it important to get involved in my community and particularly in a sector that I enjoy, the world of sport and hockey. For over thirty (30) years, I have been volunteering with sports organizations such as the Charlesbourg Minor Hockey Association, the Pee-Wee International Hockey Tournament in Quebec and I am also on the organizing committee of an adults hockey league.
