Maria joined the French Law Offices team in June 2018 after having graduated from Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law with a Juris Doctorate. She focuses on litigation, including personal injury and employment litigation.
An Outer Cove native, Maria was born and raised in Newfoundland but began her post-secondary education at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario. During her time in London she rowed for Western’s varsity Mustangs and achieved a BA (hons) in English Language and Literature.
In her spare time Maria is passionate about staying active through local sports in St. John’s such as rowing, tennis and running. She is also engaged in issues surrounding incarceration and the rights of prisoners. She pursues this interest through volunteer work and private fundraising efforts.
Like her colleague Greg at French Law Offices, Maria is a member of the Canadian Forces Military Primary Reserves where she serves as a corporal for the 36 Service Battalion in St. John’s.
