Me. Gilbert has been a member of the Bar since 2003. He holds a Bachelor of Law from the Université de Sherbrooke.

He began his career with the firm of Bernard Roy (Justice Quebec), representing the Attorney General of Quebec in the areas of administrative and constitutional law. During his six years as a member of this team, he pleaded before all levels of Quebec’s courts, from the Administrative Tribunal of Quebec to the Courts of Appeal. He has also been called upon to represent the Government of Quebec before the Federal Court and the Federal Court of Appeal. He has also participated in numerous negotiations involving various Aboriginal bands in Quebec, the federal government and the provincial government.
