About Me


Graduated from Université de Montréal with a Bachelor of Laws in 2007 and subsequently became a member of Québec Bar in 2009. In 2014, I was accredited as a Mediator by the Québec Bar and became a Registered Practitioner of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts in June 2015.
Over the years, I have developed a diversified legal practice that includes: corporate, commercial, and civil law including litigation and mediation with an emphasis on transactional law and alternative dispute resolution.
My personal life experiences with youth and the homeless population as well as my professional experience in the corporate world have helped develop my skills in effective listening and communications while increasing my ability to negotiate on behalf of my clients. I understand what my client’s needs are.
