He has frequently appeared before the courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada and the Court of Appeal of Quebec.?His excellence and reputation as a litigator earned him the title of Fellow by the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers in March 2020.

Bernard has also always been active in the community and has been deeply involved with the Justice Pro Bono Board of Directors for over twenty years, which he has chaired since 2020.

"Bernard will be serving on the bench with several of his former colleagues and friends from the firm.
