Janelle Argall (Proulx) was born and raised in Mindemoya, Ontario on Manitoulin Island. She graduated from Nipissing University in 2011 with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Criminology with a minor in Sociology. She then attended law school at the University of Ottawa and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree in 2014.

Janelle moved to Sudbury, Ontario to work as a summer student with a family law firm in 2013. After passing the bar exams in 2014, Janelle remained in Sudbury to complete her articling term. She was called to the bar of Ontario in the spring of 2015 and stayed on as an associate lawyer, practicing primarily in family law litigation. She has been retained on files in the Ontario Court of Justice and the Superior Court of Justice in Sudbury.

Janelle has always wanted to return to Manitoulin Island to practice law. She has a passion for Manitoulin’s small communities and she is excited to return as a local business owner.

As a student, Janelle worked as a customer service representative with the local Bank of Montreal branches for four years and then as a receptionist for J. James Bousquet Insurance Brokers and Realty in Little Current.

With her cumulative work experience and her love for Manitoulin, Janelle is happy to offer legal services in real estate transactions and wills. She no longer practices in family law, although she is happy to refer you to other family lawyers in the area.
