Me Gariépy graduated from the School of Law at the University Laval, in Quebec City. In addition to his law degree, he has a Master degree in Business administration (MBA) from the Higher School of Economics (HEC) at the University of Montreal.
He started his career as a prosecutor. This means that he is very familiar with the strategies and tactics of the prosecution... and knows how to counter them!
While acting as a defense attorney, he has handled thousands of alcohol offenses (DUI / DWI) with excellent results, helping people save their driver’s license, avoid sentences and having criminal records. He is doggedly independent, and believes in challenging everything for his clients' defence to be successful. As a matter of course, he is ready to fight your case by presenting extensive trial motions (e.g.: Charter of Rights issues), demonstrative evidence, photographs, witness testimony, videos, defence experts, essential cross-examination of the prosecution's witnesses, and, of course, your testimony.
He spends many hours per month researching the latest cases, legal treatises and articles on the subject of drunk driving defence allowing him to be on the cutting edge of DUI defence at all times. He makes several radio appearances in a well-known station in the province of Quebec, giving his expertise on different criminal law matters.
