Virginia has worked at Fidelis Law Droit throughout her law degree, during which time she has assisted on files covering a variety of areas of law. Virginia graduated law school in 2017 and was admitted to the Law Society of New Brunswick in 2018.

Virginia excelled in law school, competing in the Ottawa-Moncton moot court in 2016 and the bilingual Laskin moot court in 2017. She was awarded scholarships from the New Brunswick Law Foundation on two separate occasions and a scholarship for the highest mark in Insurance Law.

Virginia understands how important it can be for a client to have the legal process fully explained. It can be a daunting experience that most people have never gone through before.
