Melanie Charbonneau

Founder | Lawyer

Melanie is the owner and founder of MAC Legal. She is a strong proponent of access to justice and provides clients with personalized, high-quality legal services that are always cost-effective and value-driven. Fast, responsive and highly pragmatic both in and out of court, her focus is on getting results… Not billable hours.

Prior to founding MAC Legal, Melanie spent a decade as a litigation advisor to the federal government. She also worked for one of Canada’s largest law firms and served as a Judicial Law Clerk for the Federal Court of Canada, where she observed first-hand the challenges faced by individuals grappling with the high costs of retaining a lawyer. Frustrated by what she saw, in 2016, she decided to launch MAC Legal – a law firm dedicated to making legal services accessible and affordable for individuals and businesses. Today, this continues to be the cornerstone of her practice.

When she isn’t working, Melanie is always trying something new. She loves to travel, play sports (with varying degrees of success) and is currently working on becoming a wine sommelier.
