Me Stéphanie Pierfelice practices principally in civil and commercial litigation, representing both individuals and corporations, in proceedings before various levels of courts throughout Québec.

During her legal studies, she held the position of Analyst at the Notarial Library at the Chambre des notaires du Québec, which enabled her to enrich her legal research skills in various areas of legal practice, including without limitation, property law, trust law, estate law, securities law and corporate law.

In order to further her knowledge in law, she volunteered as a law student at the Legal Information Clinic at McGill University, providing legal information to community members and the marginalized population in a variety of sectors of law. Furthermore, she acted as an executive member of the Health Law Committee at the Université of Montréal during the last two years of completing her law degree.

Prior to her studies in law, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology at McGill University, during which she participated in an experiment involving the challenges of understanding the contribution of epigenetic hypothesis for the genomic memory of pain, which went on to be published in the scientific journal “Frontiers of Cellular Neuroscience” in 2015.

She holds an LL.B. degree from the Université de Montréal and was called to the Québec Bar in 2017. She is fluent in English, French and Italian.
