Treating each matter as if it is my top priority Karine initially started university as a science major. She didn’t immediately feel like she had found her calling but a required course in psychology made her quickly realize that this was the field in which she wanted to complete her undergrad. A love of learning, reading and debating is what made her choose to continue her studies and go to law school next.
From the start, Karine had a keen interest in business law. Having long term relationships with clients is one of the major reasons for her interest in the business field. During her articles and her first years of practice, she discovered she also enjoyed drafting Wills and preparing the necessary documentation for people to buy and sell their homes. Karine is a very organized person and she likes being able to put these skills to work in the practice of business, wills and estates and real estate law which require good organization skills.
As a relatively young lawyer, Karine seeks challenging work and strives to attain greater levels of specialized knowledge by working closely with the experienced and knowledge Bingham Team of lawyers. She strives to treat every file as if it were the only one, and makes sure that the work is done right. Outside of the office, she uses her training to teach a Law course at the Université de Moncton law school and on evenings and weekends often officiates at weddings.
Karine is adventurous, independent and resourceful. She loves to travel to exotic locations and has done volunteer work in South Africa. She has been dancing competitively since she was 14. During her studies she was part of the Université de Moncton competitive dance troupe Virtuose and is now part of the Danse Chaos Dance, competitive crews. She has studied ballet, jazz and contemporary dance, but in the last few years has specialized in hip hop.
