My father immigrated to Canada after having lost his father at the age of sixteen years old and despite all of the challenges he faced, he decided to become an entrepreneur. When I was only 1 year old, my father bought shares in the company he was working for at the time. With the help of my mother, they built a reputable company while still managing to be present for our growing family. During my adolescence, I often heard my father question and oftentimes complain about corporate taxes, tax audits, accounting and all sorts of legal issues that most business owners face. Despite having an accountant looking after his books, it was apparent to me that he needed more guidance in order to have a better understanding of the fiscal laws in Canada. As I graduated high school, I knew what path I was to follow. Eager and determined, I attended the University of Montreal and obtained my law degree in 2002 following which I obtained a Master's degree in Taxation from HEC Montreal in 2007.
Since being called to the Quebec bar in 2004, I have dedicated myself to helping other professionals and business owners like my father better understand the laws in Canada so that they can focus on building their business. I made it my mission to offer them a legal accompaniment so that they can feel like someone is looking out for their interests. My favourite part of my role as a legal advisor is when my client confirms having really understood an important legal topic without the complicated legal jargon. I see it in their reaction and in the sense of relief, my clients show me once they have fully digested our conversation.
My father is still one of my best clients and I am always thankful that I have had the opportunity to work with him professionally, not just as my father.
With over 14 years of experience in law and taxation, my hope is to meet more passionate entrepreneurs and professionals who will allow me to assist them in their professional journey. Please feel free to reach out to me, I welcome the opportunity to hear more about your future projects.
