Welcome to Michel Drapeau Law Office, the first established private law firm to practice in military law in Canada.  

Since 2002, MDLO has proudly been serving the military and police communities, civilians, as well as veterans and military families.  

Please review our Practice Areas to better understand our areas of expertise. We would be pleased to hear from you to discuss how we can help you.

Thanks to our ability to meet with our clients by videoconference, MDLO meets the legal needs of clientele from across Canada and abroad!

Below is a message from our founder, Colonel-Maître® Michel W. Drapeau, retired Colonel and former Corporate Secretary to the Department of National Defence.

Colonel (ret'd) Michel W. Drapeau is available to comment on many matters of journalistic interest. Over the years, members of the MDLO team have been interviewed and quoted by several newspapers, journals, and media, including - but not limited to - the following:

"Soon, I will be called upon to continue my officer training and pursue my military career. I would like to the the entire team at the firm for the assistance I have received for over a year. You helped me a lot to get through this difficult period, thanks to your listening, your advice..."
