Karine Dion

What my clients say

"Thank you both so much for everything you’ve done me for over the last few months. You’ve been an amazing support when I needed it the most and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate having you as my team."

"I really appreciate this so much. It makes a real difference having someone speak up for me. I’ve never had that in my life."

"I was referred to Karine to help resolve an issue I was having. She was extremely helpful and really fought for my case. She took the time to explain what next steps I always had throughout the process. She was open with her experience in the field and how she had seen stages in the process go in the past. This helped me understand what the proper next steps always were throughout the process. She also listened and used my knowledge of the situation to think outside the box for a solution.
Thank you for your time and excellent work!”

"Karine is a savvy lawyer, coupled with a friendly and helpful disposition. She was able to explain complex legal issues to me in a manner that I could easily and rapidly understand. She was available to respond to my questions and was always thorough. In addition, she was clear in providing me a range of options, including always reminding me of the potential consequences of my actions."

"Again I can't stress enough how much my wife and myself have appreciated your expertise and your insight throughout this ordeal. Should I need legal counsel in the future I will not hesitate to contact you."

"You have been wonderful and very helpful through a stressful process."

Karine Dion is an associate lawyer with Nelligan Law, practising in our Employment Law group.

Her work includes meeting with clients to provide them with legal and strategic advice and represent their best interests, including through the various steps of the litigation process. She represents both employees and employers.

Karine is actively involved with student recruitment and leading student seminars at the firm. She is fluently bilingual and represents her clients in both official languages.

Prior to joining Nelligan Law, Karine practised insurance defence at a large Canadian firm. During law school she participated in the Laskin Moot Competition in French, and she also has experience in advocacy and criminal law.

Karine is committed to her clients and to resolving their legal issues. She is inquisitive by nature and works hard to get her clients the compensation they deserve. Karine appreciates what they are going through, understands that practical solutions are often just as if not more important than legal solutions, and strives to be accessible and responsive in all communication.

Outside of work, Karine spends most of her time outdoors and travelling around the world. In winter that means ice-skating and skiing, while in summer she likes playing softball, kayaking and swimming. She also loves adventure travelling, including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, hiking the entire Torres del Paine in Patagonia, hiking the Laugavegur trail in Iceland, hiking a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail in California, scuba-diving in Belize and Jamaica, and hiking the Inca trail in Peru.
