Dynamic and passionate about complex legal issues, Geneviève advocates creativity and innovation in her legal practice, never afraid to explore unconventional paths when necessary.

Thanks to her exceptional ability to understand the nuances and subtleties of the most complex cases, Geneviève has quickly made a name for herself in the fields of public and administrative law and of professional liability. Her solid legal training, combined with her intellectual curiosity and analytical mind, enables her to unravel the most intricate legal situations and to develop innovative strategies to solve clients’ problems.

In addition to her legal career, Geneviève continues to be involved in her community, particularly in the promotion of women’s sports. Her social and community involvement was recognized with the Lieutenant Governor’s Youth Medal. An avid flag football fan who has participated in several Canadian and international championships, she was the defensive coordinator for Concordia University’s flag football team from the program’s inaugural year until 2023.
