History of the Firm
What first began in 1978 as Alepin Bigras, has now become Alepin Gauthier Avocats Inc., a firm with over 10 areas of practice and one of Laval’s premiere legal institutions. Me Brigitte Gauthier, first as an articling student, then as a lawyer and finally as a partner, made it possible to develop our firm's family law practice. This is the core of a hard working team of almost 50 lawyers, notaries and support staff.
Chanel Alepin and Maxime Alepin, brother and sister, are today part of the management team of the law firm Alepin Gauthier founded by their parents François Alepin and Brigitte Gauthier. They are in the process of taking over the family business.
Always located in Laval, Alepin Gauthier is now situated in the city commercial center, at the 3080 boulevard Le Carrefour.
Since the beginning, Alepin Gauthier has built its reputation on the strength of its interventions in various fields of law.
In addition, Alepin Gauthier has managed to establish an international network with law firms located in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia as well as in the Middle East. Due to these various associations, we are able to adequately respond to each and every one of our client's specific legal needs.
Whatever their reasons, our clientele can be assured of one thing: files entrusted to us will always be treated with seriousness and unsurpassed determination.
Mission and Values of the Firm
Our mission is simple. We strive to provide legal solutions for any and all situations that may require them.
Our actions are therefore taken within professional and ethical parameters that embody our values and that allow for the accomplishment of our ultimate goal and mission.
At Alepin Gauthier, our attorneys act with professionalism throughout their mandate and their involvement in any situations. It is our efficient and well organized administrative structure that has helped us build our untarnished professional reputation. Not only do we respect, follow and apply the high standards imposed by our profession, we have also established specific objectives that insure the efficiency of our professional services.
Client focus and results oriented
Our attention is centered on our clients. By offering a personalized service, our lawyers are client-driven. At Alepin Gauthier, we listen to each client's need no matter the area of practice concerned and we care about the financial and emotional cost of every option considered. Being available and concerned about the quality of our services, we tend to attain or even exceed our client's expectations. In fact, we pride ourselves on being able to work as a team so as to maximize the chances of achieving our goals.
Honest and human
We know that it is often a difficult or complicated situation that leads someone to seek advice from his attorney. We therefore make sure that the established client relationship is marked with integrity and honesty, but also with transparency. Our professionals will explain the available options in detail, allowing the client to make an informed choice. Our firm favours clear, sound and positive relations with its clients. In this perspective, our relationship with our clients is defined in a written mandate agreement where we clearly describe the firm's undertakings.
Competent and perseverant
If we had to describe the members of our team, the following words come to mind: rigorous, competent, dynamic, courageous, determined, devoted and creative. Indeed, our team is not only passionate but also cares about the end results.
