I am a member of the Offenses Committee of the Barreau du Québec whose primary goal is to ensure the protection of the public by ensuring that people who have neither the skills nor the training do not provide false legal advice that could be seriously prejudicial. I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the LGBT Family Coalition, whose primary objective is to promote the rights of homoparental families and provide training for health professionals and the school network to promote the visibility of families and improve public knowledge of the reality of LGBT families.
My daily goal is to find solutions that enable my clients to assert and protect their business interests as well as to enable them to achieve their growth and development goals.
