Maria, the newest member of French Law Offices, joined the team as an Articled Clerk in June 2018 after having graduated from Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law with a Juris Doctorate. She will focus on litigation and looks forward to being exposed to the broad range of disciplines that French Law Offices has to offer.
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 with the John Howard Society and private fundraising efforts.
Like her colleagues Karl and 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.
