Deborah joined Shibley Righton LLP in 2005 and is a partner with the firm. Her education and practical experience make her well suited for developing pragmatic solutions to legal problems in the areas of law in which she practices. This is especially true in civil litigation, human rights and employment law, and in working with condominium corporations and other institutional clients.

Born and raised in Montreal, Deborah received her primary education in the French school system, and is fluently bilingual. She planned to be a teacher, and received undergraduate degrees in Arts and Education from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, before earning her Ontario Teaching Certificate. She then completed her Practicum and wrote her LSAT, decided to take a few law courses, and never turned back.

Deborah graduated from McGill University’s Faculty of Law and was conferred with two law degrees – a Bachelor of Common Law and a Bachelor of Civil Law. Since her call to the Bar, Deborah has practised in the area of labour/employment and civil litigation. A large portion of Deborah’s practice also relates to Condominium Law. She has acted as counsel, appearing before administrative tribunals and levels of court in Ontario, for many institutional clients, including condominium corporations.

Her practice involves employment and civil litigation and she also lends her expertise to Condominium, Education, and Public Law. She is a member of the Advocates’ Society, Metropolitan Toronto Lawyers’ Association, Canadian Bar Association, and Canadian Defence Lawyers.
