I graduated from the Université de Montreal in 2016 and joined the Donati Maisonneuve team in October 2022 after several years as a lawyer in a large provincial law firm. My practice focuses on commercial and civil litigation, which allows me to act as lead counsel in files involving various fields such as real estate, construction law, securities, commercial general liability insurance, professional liability insurance and life, health, and disability insurance. As a litigator, I regularly appear before Quebec courts and tribunals, namely the Court of Appeal, the Superior Court and the Court of Quebec.

Drawing on my work experience, I have the necessary skills to litigate varied and complex files while retaining the ability to efficiently reach optimal settlements. I approach my practice through a dedication to quality customer service, communication, efficiency, leadership, and reliability.

During my law studies, I was a founding of the Université de Montréal’s chapter of the Black Law Students’ Association of Canada, where I was involved in creating many initiatives to promote real diversity and inclusion within the legal community. I am a prolific speaker and I give several workshops and conferences at major universities, notably the Université de Montréal and McGill University, to encourage visible minority students to pursue careers in law.

I am an active member of the Young Bar Association of Montreal, the Canadian Association of Black Lawyers (CABL-Quebec) and Business Professional Women (BPW-Montreal).
