Called to the Bar: Ontario, 2017

Born and raised in Montréal, I moved to Ottawa to study law at the University of Ottawa. I graduated from the Common Law and Civil Law sections of the Faculty of Law respectively in 2015 and 2016.

I commenced my legal career in a mid-size full service firm where I gained tremendous experience in advocacy related work, including family law, civil litigation and commercial disputes. Then, I worked as a general barrister in rural areas of Eastern Ontario, where I appeared before the Ontario Superior Court, the Ontario Court of Justice as well as the Ontario Court of Appeal. I have helped clients with claims before the Human Rights Tribunal, the Landlord & Tenant Board as well as the Immigration and Refugee Board. Today, I have focused my practice in the areas of family law and civil litigation.
