Originally from Campbellton, New Brunswick, Chantal A. Thibodeau, K.C. rose from humble beginnings to complete her law degree at the top of her class and to build a successful law practice.

She spent the first 22 years of her practice as an insurance defense counsel before deciding to pursue her career representing those who really need it – the injured victims.  She has appeared before all levels of court in New Brunswick, as well as before the Supreme Court of Canada.  In 2017, she was appointed Queen’s Counsel.  She was also named by her peers as Lawyer of the Year – Moncton in Insurance Law in 2022 and Lawyer of the Year – Moncton in Personal Injury Litigation in 2023.

Chantal is a hard worker; driven and competitive.  However, more than anything else, she is motivated by wanting to help others. She is inspired by the following quote from Albert Einstein: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value”.  Her own life experiences have taught her the importance of lifting others who need a hand – which is why she chose a career in law in the first place, and why she is dedicated to assisting injured victims navigate the legal process, advocate for their rights and interests and right the wrongs done to them.

Her personal and professional background allows her to have a unique perspective on personal injury litigation and to represent her clients efficiently and with care and empathy.

Chantal is married and the mother of two children.
