Me Sophie Mongeon
Sophie Mongeon graduated from the University of Montreal in 1996. After articling with Me Desroches, Me Mongeon was admitted to the Quebec Bar in 1997. In 2001, Desroches Mongeon avocats was founded.
Conscientious and involved, she works to defend work and road-related accident victims, sensitive to the fact that they often find themselves powerless. Over the years, she trained several young lawyers who, like her, wanted to take up the challenge of informing, protecting and asserting the rights of those left behind by government agencies that are too often deaf to the needs of victims.
Faced with the death of her father from a nosocomial infection, in 2004 she participated in the creation of ADVIN, the Association of Victims of Nosocomial Infections and became an active member of the Board of Directors.
A formidable litigator, it is with self-assurance and empathy that she defends the victims in hundreds of cases. In 2017, she took on a new challenge by assuming the presidency of Desroches Mongeon Avocats.
Since then, she has made it her mission to inform citizens of their rights. She is legal counsel for the Association of Asbestos Victims (AVAQ).
A recognized expert in her field, she is frequently invited to comment on current events on television and radio, in addition to hosting the podcast À Deux Maîtres. Followed by nearly 70,000 subscribers on TikTiok, her capsules are followed by a new generation of litigants. In addition, on Wednesday mornings, she shares the microphone at 91.9 Sports FM on the program Le livre des règlements where she comments on political and legal sports news.
Her hard work is rewarded as she is recommended by Best Lawyers Magazine for the years 2021 and 2022 as well as Canada Personnal Injury Lawyer of the year 2021 by Lawyer Monthly.
