Mr. Voghel holds a certificate in administration from UQÀM and a bachelor’s degree in law from Université Laval. As soon as he graduated from university, he joined the team of the Québec Parliamentary Ombudsman, the Protecteur du citoyen. Since his swearing-in, Mr. Voghel has acted exclusively in litigation, notably as a criminal and youth lawyer, first for legal aid in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and then on his own, as well as in police law as a prosecutor for the Police Ethics Commissioner.  

Having dedicated his practice to defending the most vulnerable and those whose voices deserve to be heard more forcefully, the environment seemed to him to be a natural client.
