Your Justice Is My Priority
After obtaining her undergraduate degree in Political Science (Honours) with a double minor in Law and French Language at Concordia University, Roxy proceeded to law school. She now holds two law degrees: a JD and a BCL from McGill University’s unique bilingual law program. Prior to starting her own private practice, Roxy articled with a criminal defence firm based in Vancouver, BC.
Roxy believes in access to justice ensuring every one charged with an offence has an opportunity to be defended vigorously.
