Maria started her legal career in her hometown of Pembroke, Ontario. For the past three years, she has been the sole practitioner of Conroy Law Office located in Petawawa, Ontario. She credits a chance encounter for her move to Saint John, New Brunswick. She is thrilled to be joining the dynamic team at Carleton Law Group.
Maria combined her passion for travel and focus on education to earn degrees from the University of Ottawa, the University of Leicester, and York University. Maria completed her Master’s in Law at York University in 2011.
Called to the Law Society of Upper Canada in 2011, Maria continues to be licensed in Ontario. She is currently working in New Brunswick under a temporary practice permit and plans to become a full-time member by fall 2016. Maria is also a member of the Criminal Lawyers’ Association and the Renfrew County Law Association. She has been actively involved with her local bar association as an elected member.
A focus on family law files has enabled Maria to comfortably and confidently represent her clients in all matters in this area of law. With extensive experience in both litigation and interest based negotiations outside of the courtroom, Maria shares the opinion that non-adversarial negotiations are far more beneficial to clients and their families in resolving a separation. She looks forward to adding collaborative practice to her skill set.
