My practive - An hand take a book

Sylvie Lanctôt, Lawyer : my practice

I was born in Montreal, and I began my career there. I was sworn in as a lawyer in May 1984. Early in my career, I handled all sorts of cases for people in various situations. I practiced criminal law, general civil law, labour law, family law and youth protection law.

I worked in several offices in the Montreal area, with good teams who worked in various areas of law. But since 1991, I have lived in Gatineau where I practice primarily in family law and youth protection cases.

I therefore meet the needs of divorcing couples who wish to obtain an opinion regarding the family, or who wish to undertake legal proceedings in the various fields of practice in which I specialize.

I have extensive experience in family law, both in the courts of first instance as well as in the Court of Appeal. Aside from my litigation experience, I am a skilled negotiator. I am a diligent, efficient, experienced and independent lawyer. I have an excellent legal mind and excellent judgment.

In 1991, just before leaving the Montreal area, I was the initiator of the representation of children in courts.

For several years I have been an advisor to the Association des avocats et avocates en droit de la famille de l’Outaouais association of family lawyers, and was president of the Association for some years.

I practice alone, accompanied by an excellent administrative assistant and two laywers.
