Amanda Chilelli

Legal Admin Assistant

I appreciate the professional values and support that McMillan offers to Legal Assistants. We are constantly encouraged to grow in our careers by attending training sessions, taking new classes, improving our technical skills and seeking new challenges. This not only contributes to our personal and professional development but also allows us to continue to maintain the firm's high standards of professional excellence.

I completed a Bachelor in Linguistics from Concordia University and later decided to do a Certificate in Legal Studies. My career at McMillan began five years ago with a two week internship followed by a contract to work in the practice area of Business Law supporting the management partner, as well as partners and associates. Given my interest in litigation, once a permanent opening became available, I volunteered for the challenge. I have since had training, learned the Civil Code of Procedures and I am excelling in a department in a fast-paced and very detail-oriented. I have developed a wonderful working relationship with all team members from the Montreal office and enjoy coming to work because of the sense of familiarity, friendship and support. With the encouragement that McMillan provides, I look forward to many more years to the firm.
