OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Julius Melnitzer of the The National Post reported today (Blakes’ associate youngest CBA award winner) that Marc-André Landry has become the most recent recipient of the Jules-Deschênes prize. At the young age of 32 years old, he is officially the youngest recipient in the award’s history.

The prize, bestowed by the Quebec division of the Canadian Bar Association, is to recognize a member who demonstrates exceptional commitment and continuous involvement of the Quebec branch of the CBA.

Mr. Landry’s contribution has been his outstanding commitment to the Citizenship and Charters Program. This program helps secondary students draw a connection between the Charters and their rights and obligations as Canadian citizens. And it helps students develop advocacy skills and gives them an opportunity to interact with lawyers and judges.

Founder and President at LawyerLocate.ca Inc.
Natalie was spirited to start this company after a frustrating and poor personal experience when searching for a lawyer back in the late nineties. “I quickly realized that the tools available to assist someone in finding the right lawyer were grossly inadequate. Not only inadequate for the individual in need of a lawyer, but also inadequate for the lawyers in search of new clients. There had to be a better way to connect clients and lawyers in a more efficient manner – without wasting everybody’s time and effort”, explains Natalie.

Natalie brings a passion to the business that ensures the entire LawyerLocate.ca team strives to improve the service for both lawyers and the general public. To that end, she is committed to ongoing communication with our members and welcomes and relies on clients’ input to continually evolve the service to make it better for all.
