“Thank you again so much for everything, your patience and kindness. It has been a pleasure working with you.”

I wish to express the pleasure of working with you. You are knowledgeable, diligent, prompt – a true professional. In your website, you claim to pride yourself on your responsiveness and accessibility. I assure you that your claim is not puffery. I feel lucky that Kim recommended your and Nancy Houle's services to us.


"Thank you for your team's representation. Ms. Deschênes was a sunlight on my darkest days. I hope to god I'll never have to see another motion. If I do, I know who I'm calling. Heartfelt thanks and infinite respect."

"Thank you for the well written appeal submissions draft."

I am very glad I chose you to be my lawyer and while I hope I won't need to come to you again in the near future, but if I do you're my first call. I will also let all my friends, family etc. know that if they need any family law help they should contact you. I can't think of anyone I would trust more to help them.


Thank you again for such professional service from the both of you. It is indeed a pleasure to see young people at the top of their game and I am delighted that you are on our team.


May I take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding professional cooperation that we received over the past years from your Firm on my behalf as well as that of my colleagues on the Board. My best regards and congratulations to Christy and indeed Cheryll and Nancy.


A short but heartfelt note, Marcia, to express our deep appreciation and gratitude for your wise, kind and sympathetic counsel. Your professionalism touched the both of us, blended as it was with the sincerity and patience of your attention. There is no way in which we can tell you how precious is the gift of peace of mind you have given us. We wish you and your family good fortune and for you personally, rich satisfaction in your legal career which should take you far.
