I have pleaded before various courts and have participated in numerous settlement conferences presided over by judges. I adapt to my clients’ needs and actively involve them in the evolution of their file.
I am particularly fond of sports which, like the practice of law, combines discipline, hard work, rigor and strategy. In fact, I am involved as a volunteer leader for the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie Loop. I also act as a dispatcher at the coordination base since 2016 for this same organization. I was also a volunteer and a governor of a junior AAA field hockey team for a few years.
