Me Shannen Valente-Kent joined our firm in September 2021 as one of our junior associates after successfully completing the École du Barreau du Québec.
Prior to joining our team, Shannen attended O’Sullivan College of Montréal, where she successfully completed her DEC in the accelerated Paralegal Technology program. This degree reinforced Shannen’s passion for the law and encouraged her to attend law school. In 2020, Shannen obtained her license in law (LL.L) at the University of Ottawa.
Throughout her studies, Shannen worked as a paralegal for a boutique civil and commercial litigation firm located in the heart of downtown Montreal. During this time, Shannen was responsible for assisting major corporations and clients throughout their legal proceedings and negotiating settlements within their best interest.
Shannen has shown a renewed interest in both family and criminal law throughout the various steps of her educational journey. The drive behind her legal career has been to promote equality among the vulnerable and assist others the way she would want her loved ones to be assisted. In light of her civil and commercial background, there is no doubt that Shannen’s attention to detail, her capacity to think outside of the box and her eagerness to learn will add value to each mandate she obtains.
Shannen is fluent in English and French. Had she not become a lawyer, she would have been a forensic psychologist.
