Having a real vocation for public speaking, Me Teixeira first obtained a diploma from Concordia University in Arts and Political Science in 1989. Mostly oriented towards family litigation, Armenia Teixeira then obtained her law degree from the Québec University in Montréal in 1994 and was called to the Quebec Bar in 1995.
After a diversified career beginning in civil matters for the Public Protector for almost six years, then as a sole practitioner for a similar length of time, Me Armenia Teixeira has accumulated since then close to 20 years of practice in Family law, a field which she is passionate about given its human aspect and in which she advocates for a fierce defense of the most emotionally vulnerable. Although unswervingly composed, Me Teixeira remains sensitive to any separation’s emotional and legal issues arising as much for clients, as for their children.
Mother of three children herself, with which she nourishes a close relationship, it is in the same spirit that Me Teixeira advises her clients in divorce, custody, alimony or child support, common-law spouses and filiation files. Her great knowledge in youth protection matters allow her to professionally and rigorously pilot emotionally charged files. Her rather Cartesian side easily and efficiently juggles civil and corporate files, through which her negotiation skills stand out.
Although Me Teixeira furrows the Superior Court and Court of Appeal’s hearing rooms daily, her rather exceptional course has brought her before the Supreme Court of Canada as a correspondent for a wide-ranging and leading case in family law. Her work ethic is marked by honesty, equity and a child’s best interest.
Valuable source of information in law and seasoned connoisseur of the judicial mechanism, Me Teixeira is an experienced pleading lawyer, ambitioned to assert her clients’ rights with vigour and infallible energy.
Me Teixeira is proficient in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
