Biography

Mr. Jérémie John Martin born and raised in Quebec city, but now lives and practices law on the Island of Montreal. As a lawyer, he practices and litigates in court equally well in both French and English.

Mr. Martin pursues first and foremost a diplomatic approach, preferring to settle out of court and thereby serving both the interests of his clients as well as those of the judicial system.

However, Mr. Martin is a born litigator. Already in 2006, he and his partner Yves Tanguay ranked first in the Quebec championships of inter-University debating Face à Face held in Sherbrooke. In addition, Mr. Martin was awarded the Bursary for the Best Litigator.

Mr. Martin is the kind of lawyer that does not back down. He is not one to let himself be intimidated. He comes through especially in delicate situations that call for strong leadership and confidence.

Early on, Mr. Martin seeks to develop with his client a trusting relationship based on commitment. Mr. Martin not does not hesitate to tell it as it is and will inform his client as to what are the real chances (good, fair, poor) of success.

Furthermore, Mr. Jérémie John Martin is unwavering in the high esteem he holds for the judicial system, judges, political institutions (both Québécois and Canadian) as well as the men and women who alongside him practice the legal profession.

Finally, three words sum up Mr. Martin's legal practice: availability, spiritedness and persuasion.

    Sometimes all it takes is a personal meeting at his office to empower you to handle yourself the situation. Mr. Martin will remain available if you were to need any further assistance to go to court.

  • Civil law (litigation)

    Quebec Civil Law deals with all disputes of civil nature. In other words, if you want to sue someone or if you are being sued, Mr. Martin can assist you.

    Mr. Martin works both in defence and pursuit. He has experience in all courts including the Quebec Court of Appeal.

    One of Mr. Martin's strengths is his knowledge of civil procedure. While it is of utmost importance to know the particular laws applying to each case, it is paramount to know how to engage the civil procedure so as to bring justice to clients at the least cost possible.

    Mr. Martin is sensitive to the financial capacity of each client. Those on a more restricted budget will see the advantage of going directly to trial in order to expedite a ruling and reduce overall cost.

    As a rule, Mr. Martin favors mediation and tries to settle out of court. If mediation breaks down, Mr. Martin's skills in preparing witnesses and in pleading insure his clients a fair representation.

    Mr. Martin does not claim to win all cases; losing some cases is part and parcel of the attorney profession. However, Mr. Martin works hard to ensure the best possible chances of success for his client and ultimately win the case.

  • Labor law

    Mr. Martin has experience in pleading cases before the Labor Relations Commission (Provincial Law) and the Canada Industrial Relations Board (Federal Law).

    Labor Law cases represent 25% of his work load.

    Mr. Martin is very much at ease with labor law negotiations and understands the importance of ensuring an excellent balance of power as one goes to trial.

    Negotiation in labor law is of critical importance; it is often in the best interest of both parties to settle out of court.

    Furthermore, depending on the particular case, labour law is one of the few areas where it is possible to obtain reimbursement for lawyer fees.

    Please call Mr. Martin for advice on your case.

  • Personal Injury cases (If you have a "winning" case I can take it on a contigency basis)
  • Commission de Santé et de Sécurité au Travail (CSST - Workers compensation Board)

    Mr. Martin knows what it takes to win. One of his biggest cases was won before La Commission des lésions professionnelles (Workplace Health and Safety Tribunal).

    It is crucial to have an expert in the field testify favourably at the hearing. Mr. Martin disposes of an important network of medical experts ready to support his clients, assuming that truth is on their side.

    The CSST is a semi-public insurance company and does not have your best interest at heart. At times, the CSST can be very harsh towards workers.

    An attorney such as Mr. Martin who does not back away from confronting the CSST can help you overturn the decisions of the CSST, negotiate with them and as a last recourse present your case before La Commission des lésions professionnelles, a tribunal mandated to settle disputes between the worker and the CSST.

  • Société de l'Assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ)

    An accident can have serious consequences. The province of Quebec is governed by the Car Insurance Law of Quebec and suing the SAAQ is your only recourse if you are dissatisfied with the processing of your claim with regards to a car accident.

    In Quebec, if you suffer bodily harm following a car accident, you cannot pursue another driver, a car company or any other party. Such reality makes it imperative that you hire a trustworthy lawyer able to defend your interests before the SAAQ.

    Mr. Martin is very knowledgeable of the Car Insurance Law of Quebec and he will make sure your interests are well defended.

    In case of litigation, Mr. Martin will plead your case before the Quebec Administrative Tribunal.

  • Indemnisation des Victimes d'Actes Criminels (IVAC)

    Mr. Martin has experience representing cases before the IVAC.

    In these cases, it is often possible to obtain a favorable decision from the IVAC as long as proof is provided. The opinion of an expert is often required.

    One must also establish cause and effect between the criminal act and the incurred damage.

    Mr. Martin can pull together all the pieces of the puzzle and thereby increase your chances of obtaining compensation.

    Call Mr. Martin for more information.

  • Litigation with governments or other institutions

    Dealing with government is complex and is politically charged.

    If you want to make changes to public administration, Mr. Martin can provide representation on your behalf and if needed recommend you a registered lobbyist who will know how to lobby on your behalf.

    Mr. Martin can coordinate the relationship between the client and the lobbyist. Furthermore, if legal proceedings are necessary and if the government administration acts against your interests, Mr. Martin can request an order of mandamus which constitutes an extraordinary appeal before the Quebec Superior Court.

    This recourse forces government administration to make a decision concerning your case. With all due respect, a complaint addressed to the ombudsman or to your member of parliament will produce no tangible results. A lawyer confronting the government can help you advance your cause. In such a situation, a lawyer is necessary to help you quickly reach your goal.

    Call Mr. Martin and get his advice concerning your case against the government.

    Mr. Martin is particularity interested in preparing briefs to the Quebec Court of Appeal as well as for judicial reviews before the Superior Court in the case of decisions made by administrative tribunals. Did you know that 30 % of cases are overturned at appeal?

    Judges are not infallible. Humans are part of our judicial system. While not perfect, it is one of the best in the world, and one should not be embarrassed or fearful to launch an appeal.

    Contrary to what one may hear, expenses related to appeal cases are not so costly, especially if one is the respondent or accused party.

    Mr. Martin can offer you an all-inclusive package that takes into account the court fees related to registering the brief as well the lawyer fees related to preparing the brief.
