Martinique is a rugged Caribbean island that’s part of the Lesser Antilles. An overseas region of France, its culture reflects a distinctive blend of French and West Indian influences.

Its largest town, Fort-de-France, features steep hills, narrow streets and La Savane, a garden bordered by shops and cafes. In the garden is a statue of island native Joséphine de Beauharnais, first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte.

After working in Paris, she decides to come back to Martinique and joins the barristers practising in Fort-de-France in Fort-de-France. She is first a member of various local firms before opening her own practice, then add Real estate Transactions Proxy to her activity.
