I like to progress in my career in parallel with the evolution of the law and new ways of approaching practice. My experience before the courts has allowed me to acquire the tools necessary to represent my clients well, whatever their requirements and their desire to bring a case to trial or to opt for a settlement conference presided over by a judge.
I find it important to be socially involved and I have a lot of sensitivity and empathy for others. This has led me to actively participate in various fundraising activities for several foundations, including the one I am particularly fond of, Crohn's and Colitis Canada. Donations advance research activities aimed at discovering the causes of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, which will lead to a better quality of life for people suffering from these invisible but truly compelling disorders. Feeling that we are contributing in our own way to the advancement of science is highly rewarding.
