AN EXPERIENCED TEAM
FOR YOUR LEGAL MATTERS
In October 1987, Claude Dumais and Christian Giard, as newly qualified notaries, founded Dumais & Giard. Their first offices were located on Masson Street in Montreal, and a year later the firm moved to its present location on Sherbrooke Street. Over the years, the firm has known consistent growth, and in order to respond to the needs of its clientele, the cofounders welcome Mtre Geneviève Godin, specialized in capacities and persons law as well as succession law.
Concerned about the future of the profession, the cofounders act on several occasions as training supervisors, and welcome Mtre Josianne Gelfusa and Mtre Sukran Aydik as new team members. In May 2017, Mtre Geneviève Godin and Mtre Josianne Gelfusa become owners of the firm. Dumais & Giard has earned an enviable position in its fields of expertise thanks to the exceptional service delivered by its team of professionals.
Dumais & Giard has won the Consumers’ Choice Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017 in the Notaries category for the Island of Montreal. This award recognizes brand reputation, customer satisfaction and business excellence.
