A Montreal lawyer, Nicole focuses her practice on family law and law of persons.
She has the expertise required to support you, whether it be in a negotiation process or in a family law dispute. She has also developed a particular expertise in order to show undeclared earnings earned by the opposing party.
Nicole is also a certified family mediator. She is therefore uniquely suited to assist you in resolving your disputes.
A litigator, she remains very conscious of the financial impact of professional fees in the event of a lawsuit, so that she favours a settlement chosen by the parties rather than a judgment imposed on them.

Being aware of the impact of separation on both adults and children, I am concerned about the “after” separation and thus try to keep at least a minimum of communication between the parties who will always remain the parents of their children. Practicing family law is my way of providing help, listening and supporting people who have to live in such a situation.
I get involved in people’s lives on a daily basis. Adolescents, young adults in need, homeless people, and everything related to poverty are situations I like to focus on. Allowing young people in family difficulties, to come and take a few days rest with us, start conversations with people who live on the streets, obviously make financial donations, etc., are small gestures that allow me to see firsthand the well-being brought.
