As our Designated Paralegal, Sylvie contributes nearly three decades of civil litigation experience – with half that time in a family law environment – to Connect’s family law offering. Since completing her formal legal training at Capilano College (now University) in 1989, she has worked in law firms both large and small. At Connect, Sylvie’s responsibilities include preparing the full spectrum of court materials and bringing order to the production of the financial and other documents on behalf of our clients.
Sylvie’s thorough understanding of litigation rules and procedure, relentless organizational skills, keen attention to detail, and positive, drama-free approach to problem-solving make her an indispensable member of our legal team. Whether she is working with our clients or opposing counsel, she consistently exudes a cheerful calm under pressure.
Away from the office, Sylvie is a voracious reader and traveller. She is also married and the mother of two adult children (and stepmother to three more), she is a long-time resident of the Lower Mainland but hails originally from Chemainus on Vancouver Island.
