Renée is originally from Dalhousie, New Brunswick. She obtained her law degree in 2010 from the Université de Moncton, after completing a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Criminology and Psychology from St. Thomas University. While working to obtain her Legum Baccalaureus (LLB), she was chosen amongst classmates to participate in the Laskin Moot Court Competition, a national competition held in Montreal that focuses on appellate administrative law questions.
Growing up amongst exemplary role models who taught her the importance of integrity and dedication, she brings an excellent work ethic and a solution-focused attitude to the firm.
‘’From a young age, both of my grandmothers have instilled in me a strong work ethic. Both working women, they were leaders in the community and have ingrained in me the desire to help others, to make a difference, and to fight injustice.‘’
Her practice at Fidelis focuses primarily on personal injury, civil litigation, as well as wills and estates. Renée helps all of her clients navigate the legal process and is happy to go the extra mile to make sure they are well taken care of. She is an experienced trial lawyer, and before practicing with Fidelis she was a Crown Prosecutor for over eight years, during which time she was in court on a daily basis. Always one to strive for solutions, Renée puts all of her expertise and previous experience to good use for her clients.
Outside of work, Renée enjoys travelling and going on walks with her dog. She is also a coach for the Université de Moncton’s law students for the McKelvey Moot Court Competition, where she gets to share her knowledge and experience with the next generation of lawyers.
