Michel L. DesNeiges is a lifelong resident of Moncton and has deep Maritime roots as a lawyer, community activist and athlete. He brings energy and dedication to all his endeavors. He’ll do the same for you.
Michel is a persuasive communicator as a trial lawyer. With over ten years of legal experience, he has represented hundreds of clients before the courts on matters ranging from child custody proceedings to criminal charges. Michel has appeared before all levels of family courts as well as provincial courts, superior courts and courts of appeal. He has obtained favorable results for clients through the trial process but also by effectively negotiating agreements on behalf of his clients. Michel’s philosophy is to fight hard when required but also to keep the doors of communication open with other parties as long as it is in his clients’ best interests.
Before law school, Michel obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology and volunteered with local mental health organisations. His community involvement also included working on environmental protection projects. In the 1990s, he was the host of radio and television programs that promoted environmental issues. In 1999, he teamed up with renowned environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to found a local Riverkeeper program that was instrumental in restoring the Petitcodiac River.
More recently he ran an environmental law clinic with law students to provide free legal services to community groups.
As a goaltender in hockey, Michel played on championship teams at the high school, junior and college levels, including a national title with the University of Moncton Aigles Bleus in 1989-90. That team was recently inducted into the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame.
Today, in his spare time, Michel likes to travel and stay in shape. He has been training in the Martial Arts for nearly 20 years. In 2010, he obtained his black belt with Maritime Shinkyokushin Karate where he still practices and teaches today. He has been to Japan and trained with some of the world’s foremost karate masters.
