Although she ran a general practice, she spent the majority of her time handling Family Law matters, a number of which she carried to trial and which later became reported cases. She also represented clients in criminal matters, defending individuals of various age groups and backgrounds. Anne Marie had a growing real estate practice, having been mostly involved in residential transactions. She represented clients in personal injury cases, as well as employment matters.

Legal Clinic. Anne Marie also participated frequently as a guest lecturer at numerous workshops and for various local organizations and groups.
Anne Marie was a natural leader. She was energetic and carried on her work with passion. Her commitment to her clients and the community earned her the reputation of a thorough and dedicated individual. She was much loved by her husband, Claude Delorme, and her two sons, Mark and Guy. By those she served in her professional capacity and by those who knew her best, she will be deeply missed.
