About

Janelle Argall (Proulx) was born and raised in Mindemoya on Manitoulin Island. After graduating from Nipissing University in 2011 with a degree in Criminology and Sociology, she attended law school at the University of Ottawa.

After graduating from law school and passing the bar exams in 2014, Janelle worked in Sudbury, Ontario as an articling student with a family law firm. She was called to the bar of Ontario in the spring of 2015, and worked as an associate lawyer in family law litigation.

Janelle always wanted to return to life on Manitoulin. After a few more months in Sudbury, she moved home to Mindemoya and opened Proulx Law Office on January 4, 2016. By the fall of 2016, she moved the business to its permanent location at 2156 Highway 551 — also known as the “Smith house”, where her own uncle grew up. Her assistant Emilie joined her that same fall.

Janelle is happy to offer legal services in the areas of real estate transactions and wills/estates. She no longer practices in family law, although she can refer you to other family lawyers in the area.
