Mtre Charles Gauthier's story


Discovering new worlds

“I am privileged to practice law, and it was with great enthusiasm that I decided to become involved in Bar of Montreal activities in the mid-1990s. At first, I offered free legal consultations as part of the Salon VISEZ DROIT. Then I became a mentor with the Mentoring Program. And since 2010, I have been a member of the Committee on the Illegal Practice of Law. By participating alongside specialists in criminal and civil law from all areas, I gain insights into worlds quite different from mine. This broadening of my horizons is what I consider to be one of the great benefits that The Bar of Montreal offers. It is a benefit that lets me push back my limitations and expand my horizons, through meetings and the discoveries they bring."

Charles Gauthier, lawyer

Charles Gauthier was born in 1963 with a physical disability that earned him then, and still today, such comments as, "Come on, this activity isn't for you.  You can't do that!"  He overcomes this attitude every time, as can be seen in his determined expression. In fact, being constantly challenged has only increased his motivation and his desire to excel.

A University of Ottawa law graduate, admitted to the Bar of Quebec in 1991, Mtre Gauthier has a general practice, focussed on civil litigation, with the firm of Gauthier & Cordeau. A devotee of participative justice, he is proud to be a member of the Bar, which enables him to push back against limitations and expand his horizons.

By sharing his particular knowledge and expertise, Mtre Charles Gauthier contributes to the unique and diversified character of the Bar of Montreal.
