Cinthia-Line Boudreau, Administrative and Legal Assistant

Cinthia-Line is my administrative assistant and will be doing these tasks: receptionist, the accounting and the secretarial work.  She will greet you in a courteous manner and will assist me in giving you services in accordance with our mission.  I hired Cinthia-Line for her positive attitude and her great smile.

My name is Cinthia-Line. I am Solicitor Godin's administrative assistant. I accepted to be because when I met Solicitor Godin, we had an instant connection and I knew that we would work well together. She strives for success and it gives me the strength to do so myself.  Working with Solicitor Godin will be a new challenge for me and will give me the opportunity to learn a lot of new stuff.  It`s a great adventure that begins and I can assure you that you`ll receive a courteous greeting at our office and it`ll be done with integrity, compassion and understanding.
