My practice combines civil litigation and disciplinary law. I advise professional associations during all stages of their disciplinary files. I also represent our clients when they are involved in commercial litigation.
I believe that it is important for professionals like lawyers and notaries to use their knowledge to help their community. To promote the entrepreneurial spirit, I enjoy helping young entrepreneurs, such as by given conferences to inform them about the legal aspects of starting a business.
