Widely Experienced & Completely Bilingual

Our firm is able to provide a bilingual service to our clients in both official languages of Canada: English and French.


The Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. Beaulac, [1999] recognized that a person accused of a crime can have a trial in either official languages of Canada to which they have a sufficient connection to.
We recommend that an accused person contact a bilingual lawyer quickly because an application to have a trial heard in English or French has to be made within a certain amount of time.


Ms. Verdurmen is bilingual and studied law at the McGill University in both languages. She has provided a complete defence to each of her clients in the official language of their choice.

La firme Verdurmen LLP offre un service juridique complet dans les deux langues officielles: le français et l’anglais.

La Cour Suprême du Canada dans l’arrêt R. v. Beaulac, [1999] a reconnu qu’une personne accusé d’un crime a un droit absolu à l’accès à la langue officielle estimé être la sienne devant les tribunaux criminels. Il est recommandé d’obtenir rapidement un avocat bilingue puisque la demande qu’un procès soit entendu en français ou en anglais doit être complétée en temps opportun.

Madame Verdurmen est bilingue et a étudié le droit à l’Université McGill dans les deux langues. Elle offre une défense complète dans la langue du choix de chacun de ses clients.
