As part of my numerous mandates, I piloted, among other things, an injunctive civil case particularly complex legally (including several criminal aspects) whose financial and emotional stakes were huge for the party I represented. Thanks to my knowledge of the judicial service and the rules applicable to it and to my rigorous preparation of the file, I obtained a favourable judgment which was executed in full.
I have been and still am involved with the Montreal Women’s Street, a non-profit organization that helps homeless women in Montreal.
As a woman, I am naturally challenged by this organization that accompanies these wounded and life-traumatized women in their journey to get out of their lives and resume a normal life.
